If your car is over three years old, chances are any manufacturer’s warranty will have expired. The Gold Star Guarantee is your safety net should something go wrong with your vehicle in your first 12 months of ownership. It provides additional cover against certain faults and can provide you with peace of mind that you’re protected when things don’t go to plan. Gold Star is part of the Brindley Group and our simple to understand Guarantee will take away the stress should something go wrong and help to protect you from unexpected repair bills.
If your vehicle develops a fault which may result in a claim being made, please bring it to us. We will carry out the repairs subject to the exclusions on the back of this leaflet and you will not have to pay for any work covered by your guarantee, this does NOT include the cost of recovery itself and any work carried out must be undertaken by Gold Star.
