Vauxhall Ampera Has A “Love It Or Return It” Offer

December 28th, 2012 by  

General Motor’s Vauxhall UK division is offering a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, which allows buyers to return their Vauxhall Ampera vehicles within the first 30 days of purchasing them with “no questions asked.”

The car is essentially a Chevy Volt but for Europe. It has a few minor differences, such as an additional ten miles of electric range, and a total of 360 miles of range when using the built-in gas-powered generator.

It also offers an 8-year, 100,000-mile warranty for the battery, which is very important due to widespread anxiety that the battery lifespan might not be what the manufacturer claims.

The vehicle comes with a 100,000-mile warranty for the rest of the car’s components.

This vehicle is also exempt from London’s congestion fee of $16 per day.

  • Still way too expensive, no wonder it hasn’t sold too well car service

  • I assume they won’t be getting many returns based on very few returns after the political Volt battery fire hype…


    • Yeah, just a good advertising technique… can’t do that with every car, of course. 😀
