In addition to manufacturers warranties, AutoXpress Limited have our own XtraSure Tyre Damage Guarantee (XS TDG) that covers all road hazards that are not part of the manufacturers warranties as highlighted above. See the next sections about XS TDG.
With every purchase of Passenger or SUV tyres at any AutoXpress fitment centres in Rwanda, one automatically qualifies for an XtraSure Tyre Damage Guarantee (XS TDG). This Guarantee protects you, the owner of the vehicle, from paying for any repairs or replacement of tyres damaged by road hazards ,including but not limited to rocks, broken glass, nails, kerbs and potholes. In case of replacement, you receive a credit for what you have not used when replacing the tyre.
XS TDG covers Passenger 14” – 17” and SUV 15” – 19” tyres that are purchased and fitted at any AutoXpress Fitment Centre across Kigali, Rwanda - provided that the vehicle that the tyres are fitted on, is used for private or personal use. Vehicles used for commercial purposes like Taxis, Vans and Pick-Ups are excluded from this cover.
XtraSure Tyre Damage Guarantee is FREE OF CHARGE for the first year excluding budget tyre brands. The guarantee can be extended for a second year at a pre-set cost as advised by your Customer Service Agent. The additional cover must be purchased at the same time as the tyre purchase. The XS TDG is only valid for Passenger tyres with a minimum remaining tread depth (RTD) of I.5 mm and SUV tyres with a minimum RTD of 2.5 mm.
At the time of purchase of tyres, you will be requested to provide the AutoXpress Customer Service Agent with the following information to enable them to register your XS TDG on your account.
- Full Name
- Mobile Number
- Vehicle Registration Number
- Make and Model of the vehicle
- Current mileage of the vehicle
- Brand, Size and Pattern of tyre purchased and fitted
- DOT Number of the tyre
- AutoXpress Invoice Number
AutoXpress and their underwriters for the XS TDG guarantee, in accordance with the data protection act 2019, will only use the above customer data internally for the management of the XS TDG program and the customer is aware and agrees to this use of the information.
Should you have an incident where one or more of your covered tyres are damaged, you should submit it or them for a claim at any AutoXpress fitment centre within 48hours after the event that caused the damage occurred. The AutoXpress tyre professional will evaluate whether the damaged tyre can be repaired or needs replacement. If the tyre is repairable, it will be repaired free of charge. If the tyre requires replacement, then the AutoXpress Customer Service Agent will establish the amount that will need to be paid for the replacement tyre. The procedure is as follows:
Within 30 days or I,000 kms
Within 30 days from inception of the cover or within the first I,000 km of driving on the covered tyre(s) after fitment, as specified on the AutoXpress invoice, whichever comes first, the customer will receive a full credit towards the purchase of the same or similar new tyre (s) from AutoXpress.
After 30 days or 1,000 kms
For events occurring after 30 days from inception of the cover or after the first I,000 km of driving on the covered tyre, whichever comes first, the AutoXpress Customer Service Staff will establish the amount that will be need to be paid for the replacement tyre. For any covered event, the sum covered will be calculated by first measuring the remaining tread depth of the covered tyre, and then deducting from that the excess of I.5 mm or 2.5 mm for passenger and SUV tyres respectively. This figure represents the remaining useable tread. The remaining useable tread will be expressed as a percentage of the original tread depth (less the excess of I.5 mm or 2.5 mm for passenger and SUV tyres respectively) of the covered tyre, and thereafter be multiplied by the original purchase price of the covered tyre from AutoXpress. The value, as determined using the above formula, will constitute the Rwanda Franc value of the credit that the customer will be entitled to use towards the purchase of a new tyre.
When a customer has damaged a tyre that is covered under the XS TDG, the customer can go to any AutoXpress branch to make a claim. The AutoXpress Customer Service Agent then needs to verify the following information on the customers profile/account.
- Full Name
- Identification Card/Passport
- Vehicle Registration Number
- Make and Model of Car
- Current mileage of your vehicle
- DOT Number of Tyre
- Your original invoice or XS TDG cover number from AutoXpress
