Skoda India introduced the Anytime warranty scheme. Škoda will hereby provide a 100 percent manufacturer's warranty for existing Škoda vehicles. This was done to strengthen the brand's relationship with Skoda owners and to give them complete peace of mind.
With this scheme in place, any existing Škoda vehicle can get additional warranty coverage of one year or 20,000 km on top of the existing warranty. In addition, the vehicle warranty can also be extended by eight years or 1,50,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
This scheme is suitable for cars older than four years. The customer can purchase this warranty package before the vehicle has completed 2,252 days or at a mileage of less than 1,30,000km.
The cost of 1 year/20,000 km warranty coverage for the Skoda Rapid starts at Rs 13,999 while the starting prices for the Octavia and Superb are Rs 45,999 and Rs 55,999 respectively. Depending on the age of their vehicle, Kodiaq owners can purchase the warranty package for Rs 57,999 or Rs 64,999, while Yeti owners can extend the warranty for Rs 50,999. The strongest point of the Anytime Warranty is that customers can choose it even after their vehicle's standard or extended warranty has expired.
The benefits of this guarantee include a 100 percent manufacturer's guarantee, repair or replacement of all defective parts as necessary, protection against unexpected repair costs included in the packaging, and high residual value. Also, the vehicle will be serviceable anywhere in India. There is also the option to purchase the EMI Anytime warranty package, and it can be transferred to a second owner.
