Audi announces five-year warranty
Audi Australia adds two years to existing warranty program; available on all new models

AUDI Australia has today announced the introduction of a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty for all new vehicle models delivered to private customers from 1 January 2022 – including S, RS, and e-tron variants.
Audi’s five-year warranty program now matches that of Genesis, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicles and Volvo, and leads premium brands Lexus by 12 months and rivals BMW and Porsche by a full two years.
While many mainstream brands match Audi’s five-year warranty offering, only seven vehicle importers – including Isuzu (six years), GWM, Haval, Kia, MG, SsangYong (seven years), and Mitsubishi (ten years) – top the premium brand’s warranty offering.
The revised program – which was previously available as part of a limited retail offering – adds two years to Audi’s existing three-year warranty offering, now matching the German marque’s comprehensive service plans.
Audi service plans are available for purchase across the entire new vehicle range with regular service intervals set at 12 months or 15,000km whichever comes first.
“We’ve listened to our customers and are proud to make our five-year warranty a permanent feature of the Audi ownership experience,” Audi Australia director Paul Sansom said.
“There are many aspects of Audi ownership that delight our customers, but we understand that the reassurance of a five-year warranty is very highly regarded. We are pleased to provide this valuable peace-of-mind for our customers,” he added.
Mr Sansom said that the extension of the warranty program remains inclusive of Audi Experience customer membership and Audi Roadside Assist, both of which are reactivated on an annual basis following scheduled servicing at an Audi dealership service centre.
The program further includes a 12-year manufacturer guarantee for bodywork against corrosion perforation and an eight-year/160,000km high-voltage battery warranty for e-tron variants.
