Jeep has finally taken action to address its continued decline in sales by today introducing the Jeep There & Back Guarantee.
All MY17 Jeep vehicles are now backed with a five-year warranty, lifetime roadside assistance and capped price scheduled servicing.Jeep is looking to provide a better whole-of-life ownership experience for customers.
There are a few caveats. Firstly, the kilometre coverage remains at 100,000. Secondly, the lifetime roadside assistance component of the package is dependent on vehicles being serviced within the authorised Jeep dealer network.
Pleasingly, the Jeep There & Back Guarantee is complimented by streamlined service intervals. For MY17 cars onwards, service intervals will be 15,000km or 12months for petrol models, and 20,000km or 12months for diesel models.
Customers can also opt for a pre-paid servicing plan to cover maintenance over three or five years. Jeep is offering a 3 Year Easy Care pre-paid scheduled maintenance plan, a 5 Year Easy Care pre-paid scheduled maintenance plan, and the Oil Care pre-paid plan for oil and filter changes.
To ensure current owners don’t miss out, customers who purchased a MY15 or MY16 Jeep before February 2017, can purchase an additional two-year warranty, two years roadside assistance and five years capped price scheduled servicing for $1950 including GST.
Overall, this is a positive move that demonstrates the brand is genuinely looking to improve its image.
Jeep is the second brand this year to make the move to a five-year warranty, Skoda made the move in January.
Let’s start a Car Conversation, will the Jeep There & Back Guarantee make you more likely to consider the brand when you next upgrade? Can this package reverse Jeep’s fortunes in Australia?
