New Dacia rangeDacia is offering car buyers choosing a new model on either PCP or HP finance a free five-year extended warranty as an upgrade from the standard three-year warranty. Every Dacia car apart from base Access models (the ones with the black bumpers and no air con) is included.

The extended five-year warranty is given to all those picking a four-year PCP or HP scheme; presumably the extra year’s warranty will help boost the trade-in value of the cars, which could help make monthly PCP payments a little lower.

Orders must be placed by 31 January 2018 but buyers then have until 31 March 2018 to register the cars, should they so wish. Maybe Dacia’s expecting a surge in orders leading to extended delivery times…

The extended warranty deal isn’t the only offer Dacia’s offering this winter. Duster buyers can get a £1,250 deposit contribution on all diesel models, or a more meagre £250 on petrol version (reflecting the relative new car appeal of each fuel type?). Pick a Duster 1.5 dCi 110 Laureate and, once the customer has put down another £1,683 as a deposit, it’s theirs for just £199 a month over a four-year PCP.

If that’s too much, how about a car for £89 a month? Again on a four-year PCP, with a five-year warranty, the Dacia Sandero 1.2 SCe 75 Ambience will cost you this paltry sum, provided you can find £1,361 for the deposit.

The Dacia scrappage scheme continues as well. It includes up to £1,000 off a new Duster: add in the PCP or HP offers and it means a total saving of £2,250 for chopping in your old pre-December 2009 banger. Dacia vows the old smokers will be “permanently destroyed” too. Seems there’s no room for sentiment when it comes to moving metal…
