5.1.4. “Normal wear and tear items” – Items that are subject to normal wear and tear, such as brake pads, wiper blades, and batteries, would not be covered under a standard maintenance program and would need to be replaced at the owner’s expense.
5.1.5. “Fluids, additives, and treatments” – Any fluids, additives, or treatments that are not specified as schedule service requirements would not be covered under the program.
5.1.6. “Accident damage” – Any damage to the body, chassis, or driveline components as a result of an accident would not be covered under the program.

6. Effective start date of the program
6.1. The effective start date for the program will be the vehicle’s warranty start date recorded in Chery Motor Australia’s vehicle database.

7.1. The eligibility for this program will end when any of the following conditions are met:
7.1.1. Completion of all Scheduled Services covered under the program.
7.1.2. 90 months have passed since the original warranty start date.
7.1.3. 70,000 kilometres have been travelled.
8. Scheduled Service timing during the program
8.1. Service intervals for Chery vehicles are determined by either a set period of time (12 months) or a set distance (10,000 km), whichever comes first (refer to your warranty and service handbook for the intervals specific to your vehicle). If a vehicle does not reach the nominated distance before the next service interval, the service should still be performed based on the time specified in the Scheduled Inspection and Maintenance Schedule. Each eligible Scheduled Service under the Program can be claimed within 3,000 km or 6 months, whichever is earlier, of the specified interval.
8.2. It is the responsibility of the customer to bring the vehicle in for servicing at each Scheduled Service Interval. If the customer misses a service opportunity within the defined time and distance limitations, the service will lapse and the customer will no longer be eligible for the Capped Price service. In this case, the customer will need to discuss available servicing options with an authorized Chery dealership.
8.3. If a more comprehensive service is missed and additional service work is needed for the vehicle’s function and durability, such as a brake fluid change, coolant change, or valve clearance adjustment, the customer will be given a quote for the additional service items required. It is important to note that the capped price service cannot be claimed for both a specified distance service and the corresponding time interval service separately.
9. Maximum payable amount for a Capped Price Service
9.1. Authorized Chery dealerships will not charge eligible customers more than the Capped Price for Scheduled Services under the program. If additional services are performed that are not included in the current scheduled service, additional charges may apply.
