Here’s some great news for FUSO operators. As from 01 April 2019, the entire FUSO range of Canter vehicles – with the exception of the Canter FG 4X4 – has a new extended 4-year/240 000km warranty. Previously the warranty was 2-years/unlimited kilometres.
This bold move speaks to the confidence Daimler Trucks and Buses Southern Africa has in the FUSO brand and specifically the bread and butter Canter range – and the importance with which customer input is regarded by the FUSO team.
Ziyad Gaba, manager, FUSO Trucks and Buses says: “We at FUSO took note of what our customers were saying to us when they indicated that their preference is a warranty with an extended time period. After sharpening our pencil, we identified selected Canter models and a number of key participating franchised dealers to support the new warranty on Canter. We will constantly review any trends we experience with the new parameters.”
With this new extended warranty, FUSO continues to offer bumper to bumper coverage, except for the usual wear and tear items. “Peace of mind is what our Canter range gives customers,” says Gaba.
Without doubt, the strength of a warranty does give credence to the confidence a truck maker has in its products. It’s always a good sign.
