Updated Nov 25, 2020 | Same topic: COVID-19 Updates

Subaru, Suzuki, and Kia have joined other car brands in providing extensions for their customers

With a growing number of COVID-19 cases in the country, it is still uncertain whether operations will resume on April 14. Many car brands responded to this crisis by temporarily closing their dealerships, as well as extending the PMS and warranties of their customers.

Enhanced Community Quarantine: How does it affect your land travel?

Among these car brands that provide leniency with their warranty and PMS schedules are Subaru, Suzuki, and Kia. The three companies extend a helping hand to their customers despite handing out late announcements compared to the other car brands.

Subaru Philippines released an advisory that all scheduled PMS and warranties that will expire within the quarantine period shall be given a 30-day extension.

However, the Japanese automaker reminded its customers that the extension for warranties is still subject to validation under its Standard Warranty Guideline.
