Finding a trustworthy dealer and getting some sort of assurance for the product being sold are arguably among the biggest concerns for those who are looking to buy a used vehicle in Malaysia.
Unlike manufacturers who often offer a few years of warranty, many used car dealers only cover for months, and whatever issue that the sold vehicle faces after that period usually falls on the buyer.
This is why many buyers often settle down for whatever they can find in the new car market, despite knowing that there are many options that are more worthwhile in the used car market.
However, all of the above are about to change as we have some great news for those who are looking for a used vehicle at this point of time.
In an effort to give buyers an ownership experience that is close to buying a new car, a sense of assurance and peace of mind, Kurnia Insurance has collaborated with Carlist.my and introduced the Kurnia Blue Ribbon Selection Program.
What happens with the program is that those who register and purchase a vehicle under it are entitled to numerous benefits such as:
- 12-months warranty for used/reconditioned cars
- Exclusive Motor Personal Accident coverage
- 24-hours breakdown assistance
- 450km round trip towing service
- Better trade-in value
Do keep in mind that the vehicles listed under the Kurnia Blue Ribbon Selection Program are only from Carlist.my’s list of trusted dealers – meaning that they have had a good track record with customers.
So, with the issue of finding a trustable dealer is out of the picture with the Kurnia Blue Ribbon Selection Program, it is worth mentioning that every used and reconditioned vehicle sold here comes with a 12-month warranty, which covers the vehicle’s engine system parts.
However, only pre-owned vehicles that are up to 8 years old with a maximum mileage of 150,000km (pre-owned), and re-conditioned vehicles up to 7 years of age with a maximum mileage of 100,000km are entitled for the warranty program, but that translates to most of the vehicles in the Blue Ribbon Selection’s listing.
As for the Exclusive Motor Personal Accident coverage, every customer who buys from the Kurnia Blue Ribbon Selection Program will receive an exclusive PA coverage worth between RM10,000 and RM20,000, medical expenses coverage of up to RM1,000 per accident, and also hospitality income of up to RM20 per day for a maximum of 60 days. This is of course on top of the 24-hours vehicle breakdown service, and the free 450km round trip towing services which you normally have to pay for.
That being said, it would not be an exaggeration to say that the Kurnia Blue Ribbon Selection offers an experience that is almost as similar to purchasing a new vehicle. Think about it – When was the last time you heard of used car dealers offering a warranty program that can match the Kurnia Blue Ribbon Selection Program?
