A Pre-Owned Warranty for your pre-loved vehicle

Its all Insurance

If your beloved car is getting on in years and the manufacturer’s warranty expired last decade, you might just be waiting for the day it breaks down at the side of the road on the way to an important meeting.


At Budget, we don’t discriminate against cars that are ticking over in the odometer department. We offer a special Pre-Owned Vehicle Warranty that covers cars up to 15 years of age for a range of electrical and mechanical faults.


Does an older car still need a vehicle warranty?


Let’s face it. The older your car gets, the more likely it is to have an ill-timed mechanical or electrical problem. A motor warranty could cover a portion of the costs to fix those expenses. So instead of letting a breakdown wreck your entire budget, a warranty helps to keep it nice and safe.


What are the budget-friendly options?


We offer four types of Pre-Owned Warranties to suit your car.


  • Better Drive 1: Less than seven years old and under 120 000 kms.
  • Better Drive 2: Less than nine years old and under 160 000 kms.
  • Better Drive 3: Less than 10 years old and under 220 000 kms.
  • Better Drive 4: Less than 15 years old and under 300 000 kms.


What does the Pre-Owned Vehicle Warranty cover?



We’ll cover most of the mechanics and electrics on your car, as long as any fault or failure that occurs isn’t due to normal wear and tear. This includes the fuel system, alternator, clutch, central locking system, alarms and immobilisers, and more! You can get the full list of what we cover here.


Who can get a Pre-Owned Vehicle Warranty?



If your car’s original manufacturer’s warranty has expired (usually after three years), it’s no older than 15 years, and has fewer than 300 000 kms on the clock, you qualify for a Pre-Owned Warranty. Even if you’ve never had a warranty on the vehicle for as long as you’ve owned it, we’ll still cover it!
