Porsche Approved Warranty

Porsche Approved Warranty

The Porsche Approved Warranty (PAW) covers all components of your Porsche and offers a comparable level of service as our new car warranty. In principle, the Porsche Approved Warranty (PAW) covers a period of at least 12 months and can, of course, be extended provided your Porsche is no more than 9 years old and has covered less than 200,000 km/125,000 miles. So we insure your Porsche for up to 10 years and, if your vehicle is less than 8 years old, you can choose a 24-month warranty period. Even if you didn’t buy your car with a Porsche Approved Warranty (PAW), or if the warranty has already expired, this can still be arranged through your Porsche Centre. Your Porsche Centre will be happy to provide you with further information.

Like your car, we want to ensure your Porsche Approved Warranty (PAW) also stands for reliability and trust. This means openly stating what will not be covered under a Porsche Approved Warranty (PAW) and why. As a Porsche ages, it can undergo visual and acoustic changes without affecting its functionality (e.g. cracks in the leather). Also certain parts are subject to ageing and natural wear. For this reason your Porsche has scheduled service and maintenance intervals. Visual and acoustic concerns, wear and tear are not defects and are therefore excluded from the warranty.

111-Point Check

Vehicle documentation: keeping the Warranty & Maintenance booklet in good order is an important measure of quality. As well as providing peace of mind, proper maintenance ensures that a vehicle best retains its value. The on-board and safety equipment is also checked for completeness and to make sure that the existing Porsche components are approved.

Vehicle analysis: the fault memory is processed as part of the general vehicle analysis. The mileage is also checked for plausibility to rule out that the odometer reading has been tampered with. Inspecting the engine for over-revving is another key aspect. This will make sure that there are no early signs of engine damage.

Interior: of the 111 points on the checklist, 39 relate to the interior. Safety-related aspects are tested, as well as the infotainment and multimedia systems and every conceivable interior setting option.

Wheels and tyres: tyres are safety-critical and transmit the high power of Porsche vehicles to the road or other surfaces. Checking whether the correct, Porsche ‘N’ rated tyres are fitted is exceptionally important. All tyres’ are checked to ensure they are free from damage and that they have a minimum tread depth of  3mm, as the Porsche Approved standards dictate.

Drive system and underbody: when it comes to the drive system and underbody, checks predominantly relate to technical aspects which are safety-critical and of significance in terms of efficient and sporty performance. These include the functionality of various components such as the transmission, radiator, brakes, fuel and exhaust system, as well as the chassis.

Exterior: the vehicle's exterior components and modules create a harmonious overall look. That is why examining the body, paint, possible accident damage and other modules on the vehicle exterior is exceptionally important.

Engine: the heart of a Porsche is its engine. Therefore the running characteristics, belts, battery and other crucial components in the engine compartment are examined to ensure they are all interacting effectively. What cannot be measured is the legendary sound of a Porsche engine. That is something which has to be experienced. Engine: the heart of a Porsche is its engine.

Test drive: the 111-point check concludes with a test drive. During this, safety-related aspects and typical Porsche driving characteristics such as the vehicle performance, braking action and handling are checked. Driver assistance systems which deliver a high level of convenience and safety also undergo testing. Test drive: the 111-point check concludes with a test drive.
