Holden announces seven years free servicing

Holden Colorado, Acadia, and Trailblazer now come with seven years free servicing.

HOLDEN WANTS TO attract new buyers to its Colorado, Acadia and Trailblazer lineups by giving customers seven years of free servicing.

Transcending the usual capped-price servicing offers provided by many manufacturers, Holden’s free servicing won’t cost customers a cent for seven years, but it’s applicable only on certain models.

The offer is for any Colorado 4×4, Acadia and Trailblazer purchased from now (October 1) to December 31 2019. That includes 4×4 versions of the Colorado LS, LSX, LTZ and Z71, and all versions of the Acadia and Trailblazer SUVs.

Holden says that seven years of free servicing on the Colorado 4×4 adds over $3000 value to the list price. The Lion Brand’s standard five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty remains unchanged.

The incentive is a bid to help bolster sales for Holden, which has been recording lackluster sales, down almost 35 percent in July 2019 compared to the same month last year. But Colorado remains Holden’s number one-performing model on sale, and currently the twelfth best-selling model on the market.

“The MY20 Colorado was launched earlier this year and has been very well received by the market place,” said the general manager of Colorado marketing, Andre Scott.

“This seven years’ free servicing is an example of Holden ‘putting its money where its mouth is’ in what is an incredibly competitive segment where competitors typically offer ‘capped price’ servicing schemes for up to six years.

“Just to be clear, this offer is for seven years’ free servicing, rather than capped price servicing, and on a 4×4 Colorado that represents over $3000 in additional value. In covering these service costs for our customers, I hope that more of them are able to spend the extra cash in their pockets to get out and drive what I believe is one of the most capable four-wheel drive utes available.”

The seven years free servicing offer is applicable to new Colorado 4×4, Acadia and Trailblazer models sold from October 1 to December 31 2019.
