The Auto Protection Plan

Suttons agrees that in the event of any failure* of any Covered Component, it will repair or replace such component using parts of a like kind and quality, to acceptable working condition, to the extent of the limits of the Auto Protection Warranty Plan, provided that the Customer has observed the conditions and terms of the Auto Protection Warranty Plan.

*Failure means the inability of any Covered Component to satisfactorily perform the function for which it was designed.

Period of cover

The conditions of the Contract commence at the Delivery Date and the benefits commence on the later to occur of either the Delivery Date, the expiry of any Manufacturer's full, or Dealership's Statutory Warranty.

The Contract will cease upon expiry of either the period of time, or the distance travelled, whichever occurs first, as indicated in the box under the "TERM OF CONTRACT" shown on the Customer Contract Page in the Warranty booklet that was issued to you.

What do I need to do?

To ensure the longevity and safety of your Vehicle it is very important that you maintain its mechanical standard.

It is a condition of this Auto Protection Warranty Plan that ONLY Suttons service centres service your Vehicle.

You will benefit from the Suttons Auto Protection Warranty Plan if your Vehicle is serviced ONLY by us, during both the Manufacturer's Warranty (in accordance with the Manufacturer's requirements) and the Suttons Auto Protection Warranty Plan until both periods expire.

After the expiry of the Manufacturer's Warranty period and upon commencement of the Suttons Auto Protection Warranty Plan, you will enjoy the Suttons six month or 10,000 km (whichever occurs first) Fixed Price service plan.

It is your responsibility to ensure these services are performed and that the service details are recorded correctly on your Auto Protection Warranty Plan documents.

Failure to do so will void the Auto Protection Warranty Plan without further notice.

It is your responsibility to check coolant and oil levels on a regular basis.

Suttons will not be responsible for any failure due to lack of appropriate oil or coolant.

*** Failure to meet these servicing requirements will void this agreement. ***

Limits of Liability

Limits of liability of this Auto Protection Warranty Plan shall be those indicated under "LIMITS OF LIABILITY" shown on the Customer Contract Page of your warranty booklet.

The type of Auto Protection Warranty Plan that your Vehicle is covered by is specified next to "Auto Protection Type" on the Customer Contract Page.

Repair Procedure

In the event of any failure likely to give rise to a claim under this Auto Protection Warranty Plan, the Customer shall, as soon as is reasonably possible:

  1. If the Vehicle is drivable, bring it to a SUTTONS service centre.
  2. One of our customer service representatives will then contact the Auto Protection Warranty Plan Administrator for verification of cover.
  3. Your Auto Protection Warranty Plan booklet must be presented, with up-to-date servicing records, when booking your Vehicle for repairs.
  4. If the Vehicle is undriveable, or if to drive it could cause further damage, it is YOUR responsibility to have the Vehicle towed to a SUTTONS service centre.
  5. Suttons will not be responsible for any repairs or replacements carried out by persons other than our staff.
  6. If a failure occurs outside a 50km radius from a SUTTONS service centre, please contact your Suttons Dealership to obtain an order number and/or work authority, before commencing repairs.
  7. Repairs can only be performed by an approved Licensed Motor Vehicle repairer.
  8. Only if this is done correctly will you (or the repairer) be reimbursed.

Fixed Price Servicing

Auto Protection Warranty Plan Term and Servicing Requirements

The conditions of the Contract commence on the Delivery Date and the benefits commence on the later to occur of either the Delivery Date, the expiry of the full Manufacturer's Warranty or Dealer's Statutory Warranty provided with the Vehicle and, subject to your compliance with the conditions contained in this booklet, will continue until the expiry date or expiry kilometres shown on the Customer Contract Page in this booklet.

To avoid any misunderstanding, please read this carefully. Two important conditions of the Auto Protection Warranty Plan are:–

  1. You will enjoy the benefits of the Suttons Auto Protection Warranty Plan if the Vehicle is serviced by SUTTONS, during both the Manufacturer's Warranty (in accordance with the manufacturer's requirements) and the Suttons Auto Protection Warranty Plan until both periods expire. After the expiry of the Manufacturer's Warranty period and upon commencement of the Suttons Auto Protection Warranty Plan, you can enjoy the Suttons six month or 10,000 km (whichever occurs first) Fixed Price Service Plan. It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure these services are performed and that the service details are recorded correctly on your Auto Protection Warranty Plan documents. Failure to do so will void the Auto Protection Warranty Plan without further notice. It is the responsibility of the Customer to check coolant and oil levels on a regular basis. Suttons will not be responsible for failure due to lack of appropriate oil or coolant.
  2. Your Vehicle MUST be returned to a Suttons service centre for servicing during the Term of the Contract (as defined on the Customer Contract Page). Other servicing will not be approved or recognised.

In simple terms, Suttons will repair or replace covered components, to the limits of the Auto Protection Warranty Plan, if you have the vehicle serviced ONLY by us.

After the expiry of any Manufacturer's Warranty period we will agree to service your Vehicle under the Suttons six-monthly/10,000 km Fixed Price Service Plan at the price quoted on the Customer Contract Page. The Suttons six-monthly/10,000 km Fixed Price Service Plan includes:

  • Oil change with quality brand motor oil
  • Replace oil filter
  • Check condition of automatic transmission fluid (where applicable)
  • Lube all doors and locks as required
  • Check and top up all fluid levels including battery, brake, power steering, radiator and windscreen washers
  • Inspect engine belts (external only)
  • Inspect condition and pressure of all tyres, including spare
  • Inspect cooling system and check glycol concentrate
  • Inspect complete exhaust system
  • Check front and rear brake material and rotors for excessive wear
  • Check operation of hand brake
  • Test engine management system (if applicable)
  • Check condition of air filter
  • Check operation of all lights
  • Check operation of all instruments
  • Test wipers and inspect wiper blades
  • Check air conditioning operation (where fitted)
  • Check steering and all suspension components
  • Complete visual inspection of under carriage
  • Conduct road test

Total price including parts, oil & labour is shown on your Customer Contract Page.

Servicing is necessary to maintain your Vehicle in good condition. You will be advised of any defect found. Any items covered by the Auto Protection Warranty Plan will be repaired at a mutually convenient time in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

In the event any additional work is required, we will refer any other required repairs or defects outside of this Auto Protection Warranty Plan, to you for your approval, prior to any work being commenced. If your vehicle requires synthetic or specialty oil, as specified by the manufacturer, additional charges may apply. Please note that whilst the Suttons Fixed Price Service Plan is intended to cover part of your Vehicle's regular servicing needs during its lifetime, it is NOT a substitute for the full Manufacturer's service requirements for your Vehicle.

In order to meet the Manufacturer's service requirements your Vehicle will require additional periodical maintenance on specific items from time to time. These will be at additional cost to you. For example, automatic transmission servicing, timing belt replacement, spark plugs, brake fluid or engine coolant replacement will be required at the Manufacturer's recommended intervals. For safety purposes, it is a requirement to have the brake fluid replaced every two years

Our Auto Protection Warranty Plan is not an insurance policy. It is a contract between You and Suttons, designed to ensure that your Vehicle is maintained to a standard that will help protect You from costly repairs to defective parts.
