If you've ever balked at the fact that you are required to service your Haval vehicle at an accredited franchise dealership to keep your warranty valid, you are not alone. A local governing body representing 2500 independent workshops, automotive aftermarket distributors and parts manufacturers has been asking the same question, which has sparked quite the debate in the automotive industry of late.
At Haval South Africa, we understand the need to keep costs to a minimum in a floundering economy, but we also believe that regular maintenance from an accredited franchised dealership hold more benefits than most motorists realise. Here's why:
Accountability is front and centre
The original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of Haval vehicles demand a high standard of excellence from all franchises. Our workmanship is held accountable and we rise to the occasion.
Ongoing training is a prerequisite for our technicians
Haval technicians are required to upskill continuously so they are able to use specialised tools and diagnostics to repair all new vehicles. This keeps our workforce focused and skilled.
Regular equipment updates
Unlike independent workshops, accredited Haval franchises are required to pay licensing fees and update diagnostic and calibration equipment regularly. Our franchises also have the special tools required to service low-volume Haval vehicles.
Budgeting is a breeze with a maintenance plan
Having a maintenance plan in place frees you from the worry of having to budget for scheduled services from one month to the next. It's also a clever way to save on consumables - the price thereof remains fixed due to your prepaid plan, even if it became more expensive due to inflation.
Accredited dealership stamps = simpler reselling
Once you’re ready to resell your Haval bakkie or SUV, you will find it much easier to do so if the stamps in your service booklet are all from accredited franchised dealers.
There you have it – a concise summary of the benefits of having your Haval bakkie or SUV serviced at an accredited franchise dealership. For more information on service costs and bookings at our branches throughout South Africa, feel free to reach out to one of our knowledgeable representatives.
