Alfa Romeo Giulia, Stelvio and Giulietta get five-year warranties


Alfa Romeo Giulia, Stelvio and Giulietta get five-year warranties

Alfa’s core range will have five-year warranties and three-year servicing as standard, as well as five years of roadside assistance

Alfa Romeo has given a five-year warranty to the Giulia, Stelvio and Giulietta models as part of its bid to increase sales to 400,000 annually by 2022.

This follows the industry trend for longer warranties. The cover will be included in the purchase price of the car, along with three years of servicing and five years of roadside assistance. Parts, lubricant and labour are all included in the service cover.

The five-year warranty includes mileage of up to 75,000 miles, with the increase stemming from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles‘ investment in its Cassino plant, where the Giulia, Stelvio and Giulietta are built.

The move is likely to be extended to all future models as Alfa expands its line-up. The Mito and 4C are not covered by the offer, however.

Alfa has plans to produce a smaller SUV to sit below the Stelvio and a larger SUV to rival the BMW X5. The GTV will also return, reborn as a coupé variant of the Giulia, and it will get a Quadrifoglio variant with more than 600bhp. A revived 8C is also planned for production before 2022.

The warranty move is likely to be a response to Alfa‘s less-than-perfect reliability record, with past models being marred by mechanical problems that gave the brand something of a reputation when it came to reliability.
