A690 Warranty

Our aim is to take care of all your motoring needs from the moment you take delivery of your vehicle. All our cars at A690 Specialist Cars are subject to a full vehicle inspection and serviced to mileage prior to you taking delivery, so hopefully you should have many miles of trouble free motoring, however we do provide a 3 MONTH WARRANTY PERIOD with all used Vehicles which are outside of manufactures warranty. Also for an additional cost, we provide our own extensive Platinum Warranty up to 2 Years on all our cars to provide complete peace of mind.
