Suzuki updates to five-year warranty

Suzuki Australia has announced it’s moving to a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and stretched service schedule across the range.

Availale from this month (October 2019) on all new and demonstrator models, Suzuki Australia has announced it’s the latest brand to move to a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty. This brings Suzuki inline with Toyota which initiated its five-year unlimited kilometre warranty at the beginning of the year, and beats Mitsubishi’s standard five-year or 100,000km warranty, although it is currently doing deals on MY19 and MY20 Tritons.

Suzuki has also increased its capped-priced servicing program pushing out service schedules from six to 12 months. But it has stuck with the same 10,000km limit. Suzuki said the five-year unlimited kilometre warranty and capped-priced servicing schedule remains fully transferable to subsequent owners.

Question: The longer warranty is a good thing but with no mechanical changes, was the original service schedule a cash grab?
