Vauxhall is to launch its first new car service plan this week, Auto Retail Agenda can exclusively reveal.
The move is part of a bid by the manufacturer to improve retailer aftersales profitability, according to Vauxhall managing director Stephen Norman who was speaking exclusively to Auto Retail Agenda.
Vauxhall, which already offers a used car service plan, is one of the last manufacturers to introduce a plan for new cars.
Badged Vauxhall Care, the scheme costs for £19 a month for all petrols or £22 a month for diesels and includes three years servicing, two years extra breakdown cover and the first MOT.
Explaining the new scheme Paul Painter, Vauxhall’s ownership programmes manager, said: “It can be purchased in two ways: a one off payment or 35 monthly instalments to help you budget – you choose what suits you.”
