Porsche claims that its used cars will come through 111 checks, Porsche Approved warranty and other facilities as well. These checks include exterior, cabin and engine performance along with other mechanical aspects as well. Also, they come with Porsche genuine parts, claims the auto manufacturer. The Porsche Approved cars are claimed to come with a 12-month warranty that will include repairs to all vehicle components. The automaker claims that while the term depends on the age of the vehicle, it mostly covers any Porsche that has not completed 200,000 km and is up to six years old. It also said the Porsche Approved program will be available across the car manufacturer's entire product range in the country.
