The solution to one of motoring life’s great unknowns comes this week from Vauxhall in the shape of an all inclusive, hassle free plan that replaces the worry of running cost budgeting with complete peace of mind.
Always a leader in customer care, Vauxhall is again setting the pace with the Complete Motoring Plan, a fixed cost servicing, repair and maintenance scheme for as little as £15 per month. It is backed by full AA cover, including Roadside Assistance, Home Start, Relay and overseas cover.
Launched this month, the new scheme is being rolled out through a network of more than 400 Vauxhall Retailers across the UK.
Whether you are a private buyer or run a small business fleet, it is an ideal way to budget for most motoring costs while the car is under warranty during the first three years of ownership, and beyond. Vehicles up to five years old and 60,000 miles are eligible.
For a low monthly payment, Complete Motoring Plan will pick up all servicing and maintenance bills, with the exception of windscreens, tyres, exhausts and body damage, removing at a stroke the worry of unexpected motoring costs and nasty financial shocks.
The comprehensive plan is available for the majority of Vauxhall cars, whether bought new or through Network Q. Any repairs or adjustments necessary to ensure your car passes its MOT are also covered, and up to seven days car hire is thrown in for good measure if your car is off the road for more than 24 hours.
Vauxhall owners can choose between 24, 36 or 48 months cover and opt for interest-free monthly payments for even easier budgeting. The Complete Motoring Plan is fully transferable to the next owner should the car be sold during the cover period.
There is even a reduced cost option called Complete Service +, which excludes maintenance and repair cover but includes all routine servicing, full AA cover and MOT Test Insurance. As well as being available to new car and Network Q customers, the benefits of Complete Service + can also be enjoyed by aftersales customers.
Launching Vauxhall's groundbreaking customer care initiative, Paul Daly, aftersales director, explained: "The best possible way to ensure your car's long term reliability, and hassle free motoring, is to rely on your local Retailer to provide comprehensive service back-up, with Vauxhall trained technicians using genuine replacement parts. With our Complete Motoring Plan, your worries are over."Published 15 December 2003
