If within 12 months of having bought the vehicle as new, it is damaged and the cost of repairs will be more than 60% of the manufacturer’s list price, including taxes, or it is stolen and not recovered, we will replace it with a new vehicle of the same make and model. However, we will not pay for a replacement vehicle if the replacement cost is more than the value shown in the schedule.
We will only do this if a replacement vehicle is available and anyone who has an interest in the vehicle agrees. If a replacement vehicle is not available, we will pay the market value of the vehicle immediately before the loss happened, as long as it is not more than the value in the schedule.
New car replacement is available on comprehensive cover, and on third-party fire and theft cover where loss of or damage to the vehicle caused directly by fire, lightning, explosion, theft or attempted theft.
