Five years is a long time, during which absolutely anything could happen.
But anyone who buys a new car right now can count on Chevrolet to keep a cap on their motoring costs during the period thanks to the UK's best-ever combined warranty and aftersales package - the 5-Year Promise.
As well as a five-year warranty on all new Chevrolets purchased from participating retailers, lucky customers will also get the added benefit of five-years' free servicing, five years' roadside assistance, five years of free annual vehicle health checks and free MoT test cover until the car is five years old.
"This is, quite simply, the best ever commitment to quality and aftersales ever offered by a car manufacturer in the UK," said Chevrolet UK MD Mark Terry. "Other makers have offered long warranties, but never with the same level of back-up. We're that confident in the quality of our products that we're prepared to underwrite our reputation for dependable high value motoring with such a comprehensive, all-encompassing package. We want people to know they can count on Chevrolet."
The retail offer is available across the entire great value Chevrolet line-up, including new and exciting models such as the newly-launched Chevrolet Spark supermini and segment-leading Chevrolet Cruze saloon, both of which have enjoyed buoyant sales since their UK launches within the past 12 months.
And there's more to come - at the Paris Motor Show in September 2010, Chevrolet will pull the wraps of another new generation of cars, with several new models destined to hit showrooms across the UK and Europe in 2011.
"It's five years since Chevrolet first came to the UK," added Mr Terry. "In that time, we've completely transformed our vehicle line-up, and the look and image of our cars - proof that a lot can happen in that time. With the 5-Year Promise, we are looking to transform the way we sell cars as well, with a commitment to our customers, new and returning, that no other manufacturer can match.
"Five years from now, Chevrolet will once again have transformed itself, with some of the newest and most exciting new cars on the market - but our loyal customers will still be covered."
The 5-Year Promise is available to all Chevrolet retail customers on every model in the company's line-up.Published 8 July 2010
