WARRANTY TERMS

Introduction

A national FUSO Dealer Network is at your disposal for maintaining, servicing and repairing all FUSO products throughout South Africa, as well as in specific countries where FUSO trucks are exported to by Daimler Trucks & Buses South Africa (DTBSA). This service is booked and supported by DTBSA.

Repair claims in terms of this warranty can only be undertaken and submitted by a FUSO Franchised dealer within the same country where the vehicle was purchased.

FUSO Trucks are warranted against defects and faulty workmanship. 4 years / 240 000 km.

This warranty is conditioned and subject to compliance with the prescribed service requirements and that the vehicle is not in breach of any exclusions covered below.

Breakdowns are also covered for 4 years / 240 000 km mileage.

DTBSA reserves the right in its sole and absolute description to repair or replace such parts that it acknowledges to be defective.

Warranty for RSA Vehicles

Vehicles sold in South Africa by DTBSA are subject to the warranty conditions applicable to South Africa. Vehicles exported to countries outside South Africa are warranted in accordance with the warranty conditions applicable to that country. The warranty terms are not transferable in the event of the vehicle being exported to another country by any party other than DTBSA.

Replacement Parts Warranty

Parts fitted by FUSO franchised dealers for in-warranty repairs are warranted only for the unexpired term of The Vehicle Warranty.

Parts subjected to any external damage are not warranty claimable.

Parts sold over-the-counter with the exception of electronic components, and wear and tear friction items (which carry no warranty against wear), are also warranted against defects and faulty workmanship for a period of 12 months from date of sale, regardless of the installation date of such parts. No labour costs or consequential damage can be entertained.

Warranty Principles

The Warranty and any liability of DTBSA, are subject to the following principles.

Non-adherence to the FUSO prescribed special service requirements will negatively impact on the medium to long-term durability, safe optimum operation of the vehicle and ultimate resale value.

Consequently, warranty claims on vehicle with service interval under or over-runs can only be entertained on a merit basis. The vehicle needs to be serviced strictly as prescribed in the maintenance schedule relevant to the Operating Category in accordance with the Warranty Terms and Conditions above.

By time/distance limits the prescribed maintenance as determined by the Operating Category needs to be done by a Franchised or Authorised FUSO workshop within 1 month of 1500km, either way of the prescribed time or distance, whichever event occurs first. Operating Category (See inside front cover)
