Major players take united stance over extended warranties

BRITAIN'S major fleet suppliers appear to be taking a united stand in resisting demands to give three years' peace-of-mind motoring with every car they sell. Despite increasing calls for an end to the traditional 12-month warranty in favour of a switch to three years cover, executives at Ford, Vauxhall, Rover, Peugeot and Renault have all said they see no need for a change at present.

New cars from British model ranges supplied by a total of 23 manufacturers and importers now offer buyers three-year packages. But more than three- quarters of the cars registered last year still carried standard warranties which gave them cover for just 12 months.
