According to Chery, other factors that contributed to its sales growth are the 10-year/ one-million-kilometer engine warranty offered on its vehicles. This is on top of the standard 5-year general warranty, 3-year roadside assistance, and free full preventive maintenance services for the first three years of ownership.
