Finding Zen: Dacia's new seven-year warranty revealed

► New Dacia warranty scheme
► Lasts for up to seven years or 75k miles
► Renews each year until car’s sixth birthday

Dacia has unveiled a seven-year warranty scheme to help bring peace of mind to its new customers – a set-and-forget warranty called Dacia Zen.

From Dusters to Joggers, any Dacia vehicle up to six years old with fewer than 75000 miles on the clock will be eligible for Zen cover. It protects the vehicle for one year – or up to 18000 miles – until the next annual service, after which the cover renews again free of charge for another year.

If owners continue to have their car serviced by an official Dacia retailer, this process can be repeated up until the car’s sixth birthday.

Owners who have had their Dacia serviced by a supplier outside of the official retailer network may also be able to activate Zen on their car, so long as the work carried out was in keeping with the manufacturer’s recommendations and everything was documented.

According to Dacia, the Zen warranty has been launched to emphasize the confidence Dacia has in the quality of its cars, while Steve Whitcombe, Head of Dacia UK Aftersales, wants to put owners minds at ease.

‘Owning a Dacia is all about adventure, but that doesn’t mean that owners should have to worry about the unexpected,’ he said.

‘The reliability and durability of our vehicles is well documented, but Dacia Zen gives our customers even more reassurance. In the unlikely event of an issue, Dacia Zen means they won’t have to pay out for any repairs and can spend the money on the things that they really want and enjoy.’
