As Autonews reports, in Russia Honda and Subaru cars are offered with official warranty. This is how the sellers themselves write — official dealers Honda and Subaru. They explain: although Japanese auto brands no longer import their cars into Russia officially, they have not canceled service and warranty programs.
,The thing is that Subaru has not left the Russian market, and the representative office still works in our country. Therefore they maintain all guarantee obligations, and also bring the necessary expenses. This is an important difference between the cars of Subaru and models of other brands, which left Russia and no longer have our representation, but are brought by dealers according to the scheme of parallel import. Therefore in our case I would call the machines semi-official.», — explained one of the employees of the dealer Subaru.
Similar situation at Honda: the Japanese company repeatedly announced its departure from Russia, but although the brand’s representative office in Russia did not completely close down its work.
And what is the price? Forester with a two-litre motor in the basic configuration Elegance with a three-year warranty costs 4,75 million rubles. Analog from Honda noticeably more expensive: «These machines are adapted to Russian conditions and are produced at a factory in China. They are supplied, shall we say, through the brand’s distributor in Russia. Here is a completely transparent scheme, you can not even worry. Price on Honda CR-V — previously 6 290 000 rubles. However “under the hood” we are ready to discuss serious discounts», — said the seller.
Honda representative told that the factory warranty (3 years or 100 thousand km) is valid and on the Chinese crossover ZR-V, comparable in size with Mazda CX-5. Price — 4,3 million rubles.
