Vauxhall Ampera’s New Return Policy 0

With Vauxhall continuing to expand its models and improve its quality, it seems that the line will continue to enjoy a strong hold on the European auto market. Vauxhall has carved out a large market space, providing high performance, high comfort vehicles at affordable prices. However, to stay competitive, Vauxhall will always need to continue rolling out significant upgrades and new models. It will also need to provide services and programs designed to make consumers feel more comfortable with its various cars – and that is just what the new Vauxhall Ampera “Love It Or Return It” policy seeks to do.

A popular hybrid vehicle in Europe, the Vauxhall Ampera is the source of some disagreement among critics and consumers alike. On the one hand, the Ampera cleaned up on European auto awards throughout 2012, ultimately establishing itself as one of the leading hybrids on the market, not just in Europe but anywhere.

On the other hand, however, the Ampera had something of a public relations setback in mid-2012, when a controversy arose over some relatively misleading advertising. Essentially, Vauxhall claimed that the electric power of the car alone could take it 360 miles before a charge was needed. In reality, however, the petrol engine that is also built into the Ampera provides some assistance in reaching his mileage limit.

Ultimately, as evidenced by the plethora of awards the Vauxhall Ampera received in 2012, the advertising controversy seems to have had little effect in changing or taking away from the significant popularity of this vehicle. However, that hasn’t stopped Vauxhall from implementing its new return policy, designed at ensuring customer satisfaction with the Ampera line. Of course, we’re all used to ways of insuring we get what we need out of cars. But the new Ampera policy goes beyond typical insurance such as one might receive from Aviva – and essentially amounts to a basic 30-day return policy.

There are two very simple requirements that need to be met if a consumer hopes to take advantage of the “Love It Or Return It” Policy. They are as follows:

    • You must have owned the car for a maximum of 30 days.


    • You must not have exceeded 1500 miles in your time with the car.


Provided you meet these two requirements, you will be able to return your Ampera if it doesn’t meet your needs and desires as simply as if you are returning an unopened product to a retail store. Again, for the most part consumers around Europe have been thrilled with the Ampera, with everything from its exterior design to its performance and capability earning high marks. But given some controversy and common general misconceptions about hybrid cars, this return policy makes the Ampera even more appealing to the average consumer.
