Alfa Romeo Extended Car Warranties

Oct 03, 2019
Michael Robinson

One of the oldest automakers in the world, Alfa Romeo has lived through more than a century of innovation, global turmoil, financial difficulties, and multiple ownership groups before being acquired by Fiat and integrated into the extended Fiat Chrysler group which includes Maserati; the two Italian automakers now share technology, platforms, and are sold together in joint dealerships in select markets. Alfa Romeo offers a unique blend of industrial design, high-performance engines, and sporty performance that has allowed it to regain its foothold in North America after being pulled from the market for decades.

Alfa Romeo’s global production figures grew to 150,722 units in 2017 from 93,117 units in 2016, but the automaker still remains unprofitable. As planned, more new models are in the works, including replacements for the current 4C sports convertible, and a luxury four-door SUV to compete with the Audio Q7, BMW X5, and Volvo XC90. 

With only 3 models to select from, North American buyers have their choice of the four-door luxury Stelvio SUV, Giulia sports sedan, and 4C Spider; all three models are available in the famed Quadrifoglio turbo-charged variant which begins at $75,000.

Alfa Romeo offers the most affordable way for drivers to experience the exhilaration of Italian automotive design and performance at a price comparable to mid-tier German high-performance sedans; without the problems associated with more expensive designs from Maserati, Ferrari, and Lamborghini that have struggled to cope with North American driving conditions. 

Why do you need a Circle Auto Protect on your Alfa Romeo?

North American drivers are forced to contend four seasons of unpredictable weather that create less than optimal driving conditions that can accelerate the wear and tear on a vehicle. Extreme heat and brutally cold winter weather take its toll on your automobile; accelerating the need to fine-tune your car or SVU to maintain its high level of performance requires regular maintenance, and once your Alfa Romeo manufacturer’s warranty expires, you don’t want to be stuck with potentially expensive repair bills. Italian automobiles have a mixed history in regard to durability and reliability in North America, making it even more important to protect your investment with Circle Auto Protect.

How Does a Circle Auto Protect Compare to an Alfa Romeo Extended Warranty?

In order to show how a policy from Circle Auto Protect compares to an extended limited warranty from Alfa Romeo, we’ve prepared the following detailed comparison.

Alfa Romeo has announced that from 1 July 2018, all-new Giulia, Stelvio and Giulietta models will come with a longer warranty. The cars all now benefit from a five-year warranty, three years of scheduled servicing and five years of roadside assistance as standard.

The Basic Limited Warranty lasts for five years from the date it begins or for 50,000 miles on the odometer, whichever occurs first. But the following items are covered only for 12 months or for 12,000 miles on the odometer, whichever occurs first: 

•    Brakes (rotors, pads, linings, and drums)
•    Wiper blades
•    Clutch discs or modular clutch assembly (as equipped) 
•    Windshield and rear window 
•    Wheel alignment and wheel balancing
