The Norwegian Automobile Industry Association wrote last year that they are very skeptical about whether they have the financial capacity to undertake such warranty obligations.


There were many complaints

Anna Moen at Nordisk Bilgaranti doesn’t understand that NAF, the Norwegian Automobile Industry Association and the Consumer Council are criticizing their offer.

– We don’t know why they are negative about us, none of them have contacted us directly to discuss it, so we can’t answer that question. But we look forward to them contacting us so that we can get answers directly from them rather than from the media,” he writes.

Not seriously

Maia Cecilie Lindestad, lawyer in the legal department at the Norwegian Automobile Industry Association (NBF), wrote in an opinion piece for Broom:

– Sending offers that look like invoices is considered an unfair business practice and is prohibited.

He warns against “marketing applications that give the customer the impression that there is no guarantee and that they have to act quickly by signing a contract with this player.”

– Offers are disguised as invoices, Benjamin Hunt, Associate Attorney at NAF Advocate, previously stated on the website Motor.No

Both the NAF, the NBF and the Consumer Protection Commission believe that the warranty offer does not appear to be serious.

– Magistat tells Motor.no that we have sent this to the police and the Consumer Council, and we hope they will take action.

Moen from Nordisk Bilgaranti writes that he has so many satisfied customers that 90 percent of those who complain about us or leave comments are not even our customers.

Not recommended

The Norwegian Automobile Industry Association has previously warned that it is not sent by their member companies or recommended by importers or factories.

– Nordic Car Guarantee itself has received information about cars and ownership and sent it on its own initiative, it says on their website.

The Norwegian Automobile Industry Association points out that many recipients have up to several years left on their factory warranty, making the offer misleading.
