On top of your comprehensive 3-month parts and labour warranty cover from Westwood C&C, to give you added peace of mind to enjoy your new used car, Westwood C&C also offers extendable used car warranties from one of the UK’s leading warranty providers, Warrantywise. Warrantywise can offer used car warranty plans for 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 24 months or 36 months.

Each Warrantywise policy offers unlimited repairs, parts replaced in pairs, consequential damage, courtesy car whilst yours is being repaired (via Enterprise), AA recovery, wear and tear coverage, with the option to use any VAT-registered garage nationwide for repairs – all with no excess to pay.
Warrantywise provides customers with the option of upgrading their cover to include more parts. You can also choose to add specific in-car systems to your Warrantywise cover, including airbag system, air conditioning system, emissions failure and multimedia system. Warrantywise also offers additional cover for the repair cost of any included parts which fail an MOT. You can also extend your warranty cover to include repairer’s hourly labour rates up to £250 per hour (incl. VAT).
What’s covered with Warrantywise?
Warrantywise will protect you against any unexpected or premature failures of parts*. So if a part stops working and requires immediate repair or replacement before it will work again, Warrantywise will cover the repair or replacement.
You are also covered if that part isn’t working properly (after 30 days or 1,000 miles and up to 10 years old or 100,000 miles) and is likely to break down before the expiry of your plan. Warrantywise cover more parts than any other warranty provider, and unlike other used car warranty providers, they cover all makes and models of car. With all parts included under your warranty, that means you are covered for consequential damage. So if a part is damaged or fails as a consequence of another part, it won’t end up costing you.
Warrantywise also covers parts to be replaced in pairs, even if only one part has failed. That includes shock absorbers, suspension springs, brake discs and drums.
