This should help you when buying a brand new car.

When buying a brand new car, there are various factors you have to keep in mind considering that cars aren’t cheap. A car is something that you will have to take care of so you can keep it in the long run. Aside from the design, price, and performance numbers, you also need to consider your dream car’s after-sales offers.

An after-sales program is the secondary market of the car industry. It provides other services that are essential in your overall car ownership such as warranty services, preventive maintenance services (PMS), and more.

To help you decide on your next car, we have listed down 11 car brands that offer some of the best in the Philippine market in terms of after-sales services. You can use the following as references when computing for the possible costs after buying a brand new car.

1. Chery Auto

Chery Auto Philippines has been making significant moves since re-entering the local market in late 2019. One of the best offerings the Chery Auto brought in the country is its after-sales programs. The Chinese carmaker is offering car buyers 5 years or 150,000 km factory warranty, while the engine has a separate warranty of as much as 10 years, or 1,000,000 km. The PMS is free for the first three years for its lineup of crossovers only.

2. Mazda

If you love traveling long distances with friends or family weekly, then a Hyundai might be the ideal car for you. Hyundai Asia Resources Incorporated (HARI) offers its vehicles a 5-year or an unlimited mileage warranty. In five years, you might decide to buy a new one anyway so one can say that HARI’s warranty offer is a steal.

Filipino car owners love to share their thoughts regarding the reliability of each brand. One of the most unheard brands in the country that offer great reliability is GAC Motors. Part of the said feature is the fact that GAC Motors manufactures its vehicles’ engines itself which provides better availability for car parts and improves after-sales services. GAC vehicles come with a 5-year or 100,000 km warranty (whichever comes first).

11. Maxus
