July 23, 2009 We suspect that the retained value figures for all Ferrari automobiles just took a significant hike in value. In a stunning move, Ferrari has announced the launch of a new “With You” roadside assistance service which will be provided free of charge to owners of all Prancing Horse cars built since 1947 and not covered by either existing factory or POWER warranties. Under the new scheme, Ferrari clients will not only enjoy 12 months of roadside assistance if their vehicle breaks down, but also be offered cover for expenses involved in returning home or reaching the Ferrari Authorised Service Centre to which their car has been taken. The service is free, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, initially for Italian and UK owners, but to be extended to other European markets in the near future. No announcement has yet been made as to whether the scheme will be extended beyond Europe.
Furthermore, the new “With You” service will also cover any hotel expenses incurred by the client before returning home or continuing with their journey.
The service can be activated immediately for Ferrari owners in Italy and Great Britain. To activate cover in Italy, owners should contact the Ferrari Client Service number - 800080202. To activate cover in the UK, owners should contact the Ferrari Client Service number – 0808 234 3324 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This latest initiative joins the growing range of services offered by the Prancing Horse to clients wishing to enjoy their Ferrari in complete confidence and peace of mind. Along with the three-year manufacturer’s warranty provided with each new car in Italy (four years in the UK), all Authorised Ferrari Dealerships and Service Centres offer extended warranty cover for cars up to 10 years from the date of their first registration through the POWER programme. In addition there is also the Ferrari Approved programme which provides warranty cover for all used Ferraris, again up to 10 years of age.
