Continental Malaysia Introduces C3 – The ContiCasing Warranty

29/01/2016
  • The warranty backs a truck tyre’s life for three lives or up to six years
  • The warranty applies to selected Continental and General Tire truck tyres
  • The warranty provides a concessional replacement under selected conditions


Kuala Lumpur, 27 January, 2016 – International tyre manufacturer and automotive supplier Continental guarantees its latest products by offering an extended casing warranty in the Malaysian market with the C3 - The ContiCasing Warranty.” The C3 warranty provides truck tyre customers with the promise that a Continental tyre will last three lives, first as a new tyre and then subsequently over two retread lives. This means a new truck tyre can last up to 6 years when retreaded by Continental or one of its ContiLifeCycle partners.

 


“There is no better way to stand by our products than to offer our customers this enhanced C3 warranty as a promise of durability and longevity,” said Mr.Cameron Wilson, Managing Director, Continental Tyres Malaysia.

 

Should the new tyre require an adjustment, Continental will provide a concessional replacement subjected to terms in the agreement. The first retread life of the tyre, which is also the tyre’s second life, will be adjusted on 60% of the new tyre price. The second retread life, which is the tyre’s third life, will be adjusted on 15% of the new tyre price. All adjustments will be made by Continental and are subject to the full terms and agreement of the C3 warranty.

  

It is a term in the C3 warranty that all the retreaded tyres must be retreaded with ContiTread or TecnoTread by Continental or by a ContiLifeCycle partner. The C3 warranty currently only applies to qualifying Continental and General Tire branded radial truck tyres that are 19.5” diameter in size or greater. These truck tyres must also be used strictly for commercial purposes only.
