    ..catch is you need to drive a Mitsubishi for 10 years.

    So true - their range is so boring and ugly. Just like most of the other Jap manufacturers (Subaru, Nissan, Honda etc).

    I wonder if there is an argument that warranties over 5 years arenít really adding a whole lot, given that any defects or issues that arenít related to wear and tear would likely have arisen by the 5 year mark?

    Just a thought...

    Subaru has gone down a Toyota route (just as Toyota are starting to gain some element of style), the Nissan Z Proto looks promising, and Honda.. I can't go there. From the mid 2000s Euro (which still looks decent today) to the abomination that is the Civic today.

    I think it is almost asking for a bit of trouble, as people will think they've got nothing but basic maintenance for a decade - they'll be thinking everything else is covered. Flipside is as you suggest, lower costs/issues to cover in those later years but tie the customer to your service department where we know the best profits are being made.

    If VW offered 10years I might consider buying new from them, currently only Korean manufacturers are on my list.

    Would falling headliner, failed soft touch plastic and buggered door locks be covered by these warranties ? What about faded headlights ?
    These have been the biggest issues for my current Jetta.
    MK4 GTI - Sold
    MK5 Jetta Turbo - Sold
    MK5 Jetta 2.Slow - Until it dies.

    They should be. A warranty should be bumper to bumper for whatever the period is.
    No sliding scale rubbish, or this thing and that thing only covered for 1/3/5 years, and this thing is 10yrs.

    Something like could (on the ever so rare occasion) be abused by an unscrupulous sales person during a transaction with people who only buy cars for transportation- and donít care to know the nitty gritty. They trust what theyíre told- and they should be able to.

    Doesn't sound like a very profitable business model if that was the case...

    Most of their platforms are 10+ years old so they have it all sorted out by now! Very little in the way of new tech in the Mitsubishi range, so probably a low risk move for them to extend to 10 years coverage, with conditions.
