BUY­ERS of re­con­di­tioned cars can now have peace of mind as Rain­bow En­ter­prise — Ja­pan’s largest ex­porter of re­con cars — is of­fer­ing ex­tended warranty cov­er­age for Malaysian buy­ers. The warranty pack­age is of­fered through its part­ner­ship with Malaysia’s No.1 ex­tended warranty provider, Guard My Ride (GMR).

It also comes with added value of re­deemable car main­te­nance and ac­ces­sory vouch­ers upon pur­chases of ve­hi­cles.

On top of that, the ex­tended warranty cov­er­age is free for the first 500 units of ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered from March 8.

“GMR’s pro­grammes are fully com­pre­hen­sive and trans­par­ent. Ev­ery part we cover is listed so cus­tomers don’t have to sec­ondguess what is cov­ered and what is not in the event of claim.

“But what we’re most proud of is the ef­fi­ciency in which we carry out our work and claim pro­cesses, made even bet­ter by our ex­cel­lent re­la­tion­ship with our panel work­shops,” said GMR gen­eral man­ager Ger­ard Law af­ter an­nounc­ing the Rain­bow Pro­mo­tion Warranty Pro­gramme in Kuala Lumpur on Wed­nes­day.

He said ve­hi­cle pur­chase took one of the big­gest por­tion from the in­come of Malaysians, sec­ond only to their home. Thus, it was cru­cial that each pur­chase did not bring added prob­lems or is­sues with it.

Ac­cord­ing to Law, the GMR-Rain­bow part­ner­ship aimed to pro­vide added value to cus­tomers through warranty cov­er­age for both en­gine and trans­mis­sion.

“Our warranty pro­gramme elim­i­nates the has­sle and ad­di­tional costs to re­pair the en­gine and trans­mis­sion, which usu­ally are the most ex­pen­sive and com­plex com­po­nents in a car,” he added.

Upon pur­chas­ing re­con cars un­der the pro­gramme, cus­tomers are also en­ti­tled to a car­care pack­age worth more than RM1,400.00 which in­cludes car wash and wax treat­ment, head­lamp wrap pro­tec­tion, win­dow tint film, balanc­ing and align­ment as well as four litres of semi-syn­thetic oil for ser­vic­ing.

Mean­while, GMR chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Jonathan Tham said al­most all re­con car deal­ers in Klang Val­ley would be able to of­fer the warranty pro­gramme to buy­ers.

“Apart from the Klang Val­ley, our sec­ond and third largest mar­kets are south­ern and north­ern re­gions, re­spec­tively,” he added.

GMR is also look­ing to ex­pand its ser­vices to Sabah and Sarawak in the near fu­ture.

Also present at the launch was Pekema pres­i­dent Datuk Zain­ud­din Abd Rah­man.
