The Covenant Car Company Inc. (TCCCI) the exclusive distributor of Chevrolet vehicles in the Philippines has decided to give owners an extension on their expiring warranties for their vehicles due to the enhanced community quarantine. Similar to that of what other automotive brands have done, the Golden Bowtie will be extending its PMS scheduling as well by 30-days. One main difference that sets it apart from other brands is that Chevrolet Philippines will be extending warranties by 2-months instead of the usual 1-month extension. The extension of the warranty will only apply to those who have warranties expiring in March.
If you are a Chevrolet owner and your vehicle was originally supposed to have its Periodic Maintenance Service (PMS) done in March you can reschedule it for April instead. The American brand wants to assure its customers that their warranties will still remain intact even if they miss their PMS scheduled for March. Owners can also refer to their owner’s manual for more information about the warranty coverage.
In the interest of public health and safety amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, the Philippine government has put the National Capital Region (NCR) and other parts of the country into enhanced community quarantine. This has limited the movement of the general public and through this manner has caused several businesses to temporarily close down until the end of the quarantine. The temporary lockdown has also forced many car dealerships to temporarily close to help stop the spread of the virus.
The lockdown has yet to have a definitive timetable and may be subject to extension at any given time. In the meantime, automotive brands are doing their best to ensure that their customer base and their vehicles will remain running throughout the quarantine period. In trying times like this it's important to follow the quarantine rules and regulations in order to stem the rise in cases due to the pandemic.
