This warranty is from the selling dealer (or SGB in the case of direct sales) and is solely for the benefit of the first buyer from that seller (‘the Customer’) and not for the benefit of any subsequent buyer/user unless previously agreed in writing by Scania or the first selling dealer. Subsequent sales of the vehicle are subject to the terms of the relevant sales contract.

Intermediaries and Finance Companies

If the Customer employs the services of a duly authorised intermediary, the sale will be registered to the Customer as principal and the vehicle registered in their name, with any benefit of this warranty. If the Customer finances the purchase through an agreed legitimate finance company (e.g. by lease, contract hire, hire purchase) the benefit of this warranty shall be available to such Customer.


The Scania Used Vehicle Extended Driveline Warranty offers extended protection against failure of a component directly attributable to a manufacturing or material defect.

This warranty is for Scania Approved Used vehicles only purchased from a Scania Authorised Dealer and must be purchased prior to the Scania vehicle going on the road to ensure continuous cover from the date of purchase.
