What about parts and warranty?

Alberts said: "Parts will not be a concern, as we currently have a first pick rate of 91%. Haval H2 is proudly backed by a 5-year/100 000km warranty, 5-year/60 000km service plan, and a 5-year/unlimited km  roadside assistance. That's got to put it among the market leaders"

He adds: "We at Haval Motors South Africa are very proud of our brand, and appreciate just how important our customers are. It's imperative that they know they can have peace of mind purchasing a Haval, which we expect to become a brand to be reckoned with on the local front."

What about safety?

Haval SA adds: "And five stars - that's what the H2 scored in CNCAP crash testing. Important this, given that certain other, lesser Chinese brands have in the past hardly covered themselves in glory when it comes to crashworthiness, to be frank. But then Haval is hardly just 'another' Chinese brand."
