Vauxhall to launch new car service plan
06 January 2019
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.”
