Will I be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty?
Many of the vehicles we sell are still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Regardless of what any car dealer tells you, this is the best situation for you when purchasing a used car. This is because a vehicle under manufacturer warranty is likely to have the best cover when it comes to any future issues.
Do Drive Green offer their own warranty?
Any vehicle sold by us out of manufacturer’s warranty will come with our own three-month parts and performance warranty. This covers any issues that cause the vehicle to operate in a way that is considered unsafe or unroadworthy. This also covers issues arising from the motor and drivetrain components that have not occurred through wear and tear. Our warranty does not affect your statutory rights. Contact us if you would like to find out more information about our warranty.
Can I buy an extended warranty?
Yes it is possible to buy a 12 month extended Gold Warranty plan on any of the cars we sell. It is administered by a carefully chosen third party with a specialist EV warranty similar to our own. For further information and a price quote please enquire.
