Failure to service the vehicle regularly will forfeit ANY claim. We do ask for evidence of servicing when a claim is lodged, so please ensure the supplied service record sheet is updated as required. Servicing is FREE for 12 months from purchase date (minus the costs of replacement parts) at all Wicked Depots in Australia so we insist you service your vehicle every 5000kms to ensure it remains in a good condition.

3. You will contact your roadside assistance provider - (RACQ, RAC etc) if a serious defect occurs so that they can tow the vehicle (if required) to a repair centre, to prevent further damage to the vehicle. Towing costs are at your expense. We suggest you take the highest level of roadside assistance cover available.
4. If you ignore the engine temperature gauge (and thereby overheat or cook your engine) – you void your warranty. The temperature gauge on your van should never go over the half way mark – if it does you need to immediately stop driving and check the vehicle for oil and water.
Million-Dollar Travel Tip: Travel slow on hot days to minimise your risk of overheating the engine – Look after your investment and it will look after you! If you cook your engine and blow your head gasket – you void your warranty, so treat your van with lots of love!
