Whether it’s a brand-new van or Approved Used, you never want to face hefty repair bills. And when you rely on your van for travel or business, getting it back on the road as quickly as possible is essential.
That’s why having a longer warranty gives you extra peace of mind. If it’s a brand-new van, it could last the entirety of your financial agreement – giving you one less thing to worry about should something go wrong.
And if you’re looking at a used van, it’s arguably more important. Having a five-year warranty means you can take advantage of a lower vehicle price while still enjoying the benefits of warranty cover.
However, there are only a select few vans and light commercial vehicles which come with a five-year warranty. And, to help, we’ve listed them below.
The Citroen Berlingo is one of the UK’s best-loved vans, winning Van of the Year in 2019 as voted for by 25 industry experts.
Its high-tech safety features including an optional overload sensor, great driving experience and impressive payload capacity – up to 1,000kg, which is more than any of its rivals – make it an all-round great van.
And add to that its five-year or 100,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first, and you have yourself a reliable small van which is ahead of its competition in almost every way.
Other Citroen vans with a five-year warranty include:
Although not van-like in styling, the Isuzu D-Max comes with a 1,282kg maximum payload capacity, meaning it’s classed as a light commercial vehicle.
Add to the fact it can come in single or double-cab form, depending on your preference, and in two or four-wheel-drive, the D-Max can cater to almost any need.
And considering the Isuzu is widely regarded as one of the most dependable pick-ups on the market, then taking into account its five-year or 125,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first, the D-Max provides trouble and stress-free motoring better than most.
Maxus eDeliver 3
Formally known as LDV, Maxus is China’s largest automotive manufacturer. And as part of their rebrand, they brought us the eDeliver 3.
An all-electric van which is constructed from ultra-light aluminium alloys and polymer composites, the eDeliver 3 is helping transform the commercial landscape with a maximum range of 213 miles from a single charge, a 1,020kg maximum payload capacity and up to 6.3 cubic metres of load space.
Add to that Maxus’ generous five-year or 125,000-mile warranty, and you have a vehicle that’ll not only help you save on tax but also repair costs.
Again, not a conventional van but one which certainly ranks as a light commercial vehicle thanks to its impressive 1,080kg max payload is the Mitsubishi L200.
Adaptable as a two or five-seater, the L200 is a much-loved pick-up across the UK, with plenty of car-like creature comforts such as air-conditioning, alloy wheels, privacy glass, DAB radio, lane departure warning and LED headlights.
As standard, the L200 receives a five-year or 62,500-mile warranty from first registration, making it not only affordable to lease or buy but also to run.
The Nissan NV300 offers everything a business would need from a van. Low running costs, flexibility, comfort and an impressive 1,310kg maximum payload capacity.
The NV300 comes in three forms, panel, crew and combi, making it a useful vehicle for almost any need.
From carrying bulky loads thanks to its four-cubic-metre load capacity, to ferrying a team of workers in its nine-seat minibus variant, there’s an NV300 for everyone.
On top of that, the Nissan also comes with a five-year or 100,000-mile warranty, meaning new or Approved Used, it’s a reliable machine.
One of the most affordable pick-ups on the market, the SsangYong Musso offers almost unrivalled value for money.
With a maximum payload capacity of 1,140kg and generous 1.61 metres of load deck length, the Musso is as practical as it is reliable.
And that reliability is guaranteed by SsangYong, with an industry-leading seven-year or 150,000-mile, whichever comes first, warranty.
Add to that it can be customised to your needs, from a crew cab to a camper van, the Proace is one of the most adaptable and reliable models on the market.
It doesn’t perform as well as some competitors in terms of load capacity, such as the Ford Transit Connect and Volkswagen Caddy, but it does outdo them both on the warranty front; offering a five-year or 100,000-mile warranty as standard – two years more than both Ford and VW provides.
