It also covers consequential damage to the vehicle resulting from the principal defect. It is up to Dacia, in consultation with the relevant Dacia Network member, to decide whether it is appropriate in the circumstances to repair or replace any faulty part.
The Warranty does not cover: - The indirect consequences of any fault (including but not limited to loss of business, length of time off the road) - Any components of the Vehicle that have been changed following the Registration Date and the consequences (including but not limited to damage, premature wear, alterations) of such changes on other parts or components of the Vehicle or on the Vehicle's specifications. - Any routine servicing agreed with the Customer on purchase of the Vehicle, recommended by Dacia, detailed on the Warranty & Service Sheet (provided by the Dacia Dealer) or which the Customer chooses to undertake. - The replacement of parts damaged as a result of normal wear and tear.

How does the Warranty work? - To benefit from the Warranty, the Customer must: - Make sure the Warranty & Service Sheet does actually show the Registration Date for the Vehicle on which entitlement to the Warranty depends. - Go to any member of the Dacia Network and authorise it to carry out work covered by and detailed in the Warranty. - Present the Owner’s Handbook with the Service records duly filled in, justifying the entitlement to warranty and to show that the servicing operations recommended by Dacia have indeed been carried out. - Have one of the Dacia Network workshops record or point out in writing, as soon as possible, any fault covered by the Warranty. If the Vehicle is off the road and cannot be driven to a Dacia Network member, the Customer shall contact the nearest member of the Dacia Network. Important Points to Note - The Warranty does not apply and Dacia and the Dacia Network members are not held responsible when: - The Vehicle has been used under conditions that do not conform to those stated in the Owner's Handbook, the Warranty & Service Sheet and these Warranty Terms and Conditions (for example: overloading or the vehicle has been entered in any sort of sporting competition). - The fault recorded relates to the fact that the Vehicle has not been repaired, maintained or serviced to the standard recommended by Dacia. - Adjustments under the new vehicle warranty The operations involved in various adjustments (wheel alignment/balance, openings, adjustments, steering wheel centring, exhaust, wiper blades etc.) are covered only once under the warranty, up to 2,000 miles/2 months. The only exception would be if the operation follows replacement under warranty of the component or element to be adjusted. Compliance with Recall Notices In the event that Dacia contacts the Customer directly in respect of product safety recalls and quality realignment notices, these must be complied with in full. Failure to comply will invalidate the Warranty for any particular incident or claim relating to the product safety recall or quality realignment notice. Duration - All parts and labour services supplied under the Warranty are guaranteed under the terms of the Warranty until it expires irrespective of when during the Warranty period any parts and/or labour services are supplied (for example, if a spare part is supplied free of charge under the Warranty in the 34th month of the Warranty period, it will only be covered under the Warranty until the expiry of the Warranty in the 36th month or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first). Ownership of Parts replaced - In return for the replacement parts fitted by Dacia under the Warranty, the part(s) replaced within the scope of the Warranty rightfully become the property of Dacia and the part(s) may be retained by the Dealer.
Transfer of ownership of the Vehicle - Transfer of ownership of the Vehicle does not alter the terms and conditions of the Warranty. Geographic Coverage - Outside the country of purchase, the Warranty will be valid under the same conditions as in the country of origin as long as the Vehicle remains registered within the geographic zone covered by the Warranty set out on page 1. Dacia Services The Dacia Anti-Corrosion Warranty The Anti-Corrosion Warranty The Anti-Corrosion Warranty forms part of the Warranty and is subject to the same terms and conditions as the Warranty except that the additional conditions detailed herein also apply. In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Warranty and Anti-Corrosion Warranty, the Anti-Corrosion Warranty terms will apply. Duration of the Anti-Corrosion Warranty The Anti-Corrosion Warranty applies from the Registration Date of the vehicle for a period of 6 years. Geographic Coverage The Anti-Corrosion Warranty covers the same geographic zone as the Warranty. Scope of the Anti-Corrosion Warranty Dacia guarantees only the bodywork and sub-frame of all Dacia vehicles against perforation originating from the interior of the Vehicle where the corrosion is due to a manufacturing or material fault or a problem concerning application of anti-corrosion products to Vehicle metalwork ("Protection Products") by Dacia or a Dacia Network Member. The Anti-Corrosion Warranty covers repair or replacement of corroded parts of the Vehicle's bodywork and sub-frame subject to them being a result of a manufacturer defect, material fault or the application of anti-corrosion products recommended by the manufacturer. It is the Dacia workshop's responsibility to decide whether repair or replacement of these parts is required. The Dacia workshop will inform the customer of this. The Dacia Anti-Corrosion Warranty does not cover: - Items outside the scope of the Warranty or damage not covered by the Warranty, as specified on pages 1 & 2 of these Terms and Conditions. - Mechanical elements that are not an integral part of the bodywork or subframe (alloy wheels, exhaust system...) Conditions under which the Anti-Corrosion Warranty will apply To benefit from the Anti-Corrosion Warranty, the customer must approach any member of the Dacia network displaying the make’s brand, which are the only organisations able to carry out operations under this Warranty. The customer must present the Owner’s Handbook with the Service records duly documented (validation of the anti-corrosion check coupons) to justify entitlement to the warranty. The application of the Anti-Corrosion Warranty depends on the anti-corrosion inspections carried out on the bodywork, subframe and underbody. The inspections must be carried out at the mileages stated on the Warranty & Service Sheet and at least once every two years. The periodic services within the Dacia Network include these inspections. In the event of the customer requesting the Anti-Corrosion inspection carried out other than during the periodic service, the resultant costs for this inspection will be payable by the customer. At the time of these inspections, the customer will check that the professional who has carried out the operation has properly filled in all relevant anti-corrosion and subframe check coupons, thus validating the Anti-Corrosion Warranty procedure. The customer shall arrange for repairs to be carried out as soon as possible. The application of the Dacia Anti-Corrosion Warranty also depends on the repairs to the bodywork and the subframe being carried out in compliance with Dacia’s recommendations. The refurbishment operations or replacement of components under the conditions described in the paragraph entitled “Scope of Anti-Corrosion Warranty” will take the general condition of the vehicle into account as regards to its age, mileage and the level at which it has been maintained. The replaced parts under the Anti-Corrosion Warranty will become the full legal ownership of Dacia. The refurbishment operations and components fitted under the Anti-Corrosion warranty are covered until the end of the initial Anti-Corrosion Warranty period. Transfer of ownership of the vehicle does not alter the terms and conditions of the Anti-Corrosion Warranty.
Dacia Services The Dacia Paintwork Warranty The Paintwork Warranty The Paintwork Warranty forms part of the Warranty and is subject to the same terms and conditions as the Warranty except that the additional conditions detailed herein also apply. In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Warranty and Paintwork Warranty, the Paintwork Warranty terms will apply. Duration of the Paintwork Warranty Dacia guarantees the paintwork of the exterior painted bodywork and other painted components (bumpers, original spoiler and rear view mirrors) only - all other items are excluded - of all Dacia Vehicles for a period of 2 years from the Registration Date. Geographic Coverage The Paintwork Warranty covers the same geographic zone as the Warranty. Scope of the Paintwork Warranty The Paintwork Warranty covers refurbishment or replacement, free of charge, by a Dacia Network member of the items listed above only, showing paintwork defects (for example: damage to the varnish or top coat, due to any material, manufacturing or application fault) during the Paintwork Warranty Period. The decision as to whether and how to repaint the Vehicle or replace parts under the Paintwork Warranty will be taken by Dacia (in its sole discretion) in consultation with the relevant Dacia Network member who will take into account the overall condition of the Vehicle in view of its age, mileage and level of upkeep. The Paintwork Warranty does not cover: - Items outside the scope of the Warranty or damage not covered by the Warranty, as specified on pages 1 & 2 of these Warranty Terms and Conditions - Damage caused by events beyond Dacia’s reasonable control, including but not limited to: lightning, fire, floods, earthquakes, acts of war, terrorism, civil commotion, sabotage, vandalism, acts of God, riots and attacks - Mechanical elements that are not an integral part of the bodywork or subframe (alloy wheels, exhaust system...).

The Customer must show the relevant Dacia Network member any relevant previous inspection documentation, the Owner’s Handbook with the Service records duly filled in, proving entitlement to the Paintwork Warranty. (The Owner’s Handbook Service records must show that the periodic body inspections have been completed according to servicing requirements.) In return for the parts delivered by Dacia under the Paintwork Warranty, the parts replaced within the framework of the Paintwork Warranty rightfully become the property of Dacia.

Transfer of ownership of the Vehicle - Transfer of ownership of the Vehicle does not alter the terms and conditions of the Paintwork Warranty.
