Automotive & Motorcycle Warranty

This warranty information relates to Yuasa automotive, commercial vehicle, motorcycle and powersport, leisure, marine and garden batteries only. For industrial batteries please click here

Yuasa batteries (including Motorcycle & Powersport types) sold as replacement product to direct customers are guaranteed against premature failure due to manufacturing or material defects for a period of 12 months (from the date of purchase of the battery by the end-user).

Most Yuasa distributors/resellers will offer an additional warranty period (against manufacturing defect) at their discretion. This is administered independently of GS Yuasa.

The guarantee period should be confirmed by the distributor to the purchaser at the time of purchase. In the event of such a battery claim, the battery should be returned with proof of purchase to the original Yuasa distributor/reseller for testing. Should the tests confirm a fault, then the battery will be exchanged free of charge.

• The distributor has the right to test and if necessary, charge the battery before agreeing to the claim
• This does not affect the statutory rights of the customer in any way
• The guarantee is valid only for the purchaser of the battery, and is not transferable
• The guarantee period runs from the date of purchase of the original battery.
