Fuso NZ launches industry-leading warranty
The 5yr/200,000km bumper-to-bumper extended warranty is believed to be a first for the transport industry and will provide operators additional peace of mind that not only are Canter drivers better protected, but so too is their investment.
“We believe this is the first warranty of its kind in the light truck market,” said Fuso NZ managing director Kurtis Andrews. “It’s simple: the warranty extends from 36mths/100,000km out to a whopping 60mths/200,000km. This is a huge amount of value delivered at no additional cost, with the only stipulation being that the customer services the vehicle at an authorised FUSO dealer.”
“The additional standard safety features* we’ve added to Canter this year, such as Active Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Electronic Stability Control, make it New Zealand’s safest light truck – our extended warranty means it also has the most comprehensive manufacturer backing of any light truck on the market,” said Andrews.
“We understand what operators expect from a truck and have always been committed to delivering on that,” said Andrews. “Canter has always been one of the most popular light trucks in New Zealand – a tried and trusted investment for single-unit owner-operators to giant multinationals.
“All of these additions are about aligning Canter with our new ‘We look after our own’ positioning. We want our customers to feel safe on the road and safe in their investment. We know that helping them look after their asset will add a positive return to their bottom line.”
The extended warranty is standard across all new model Canters (2019 onwards) except the 616 and 816 Tipper, where it is available as an optional extra.
*Canter safety features and extended warranty exclude 4x4 models
