How much value do you get from your car’s service plan

There is a thought trail that exists among many consumers that once a car has come out of it's service plan it is time to sell it and move onto a newer model. However with the pricing of new cars continually on the rise, many cannot afford to go this route. They are then faced with the conundrum and fear that due to their vehicle being out of service plan the cost to maintain them would exceed their budgets.

Many will recognize the fact that a new cars actual value as the service plan built into it. Therefore, when taking your car for a service at a dealer, then collecting it once work has been completed you simply get in and drive out without having to dig into your pockets to pay for the job. However you have already paid for this service, and in many cases the work carried out does not come near to the actual value you have put forward. This is due to manufacturers calculating how many services your vehicle will require of a period of time. They will estimate the cost of these intervals to come up with a figure of how much to add onto the car’s selling price.


A shift in focus

A suitable saying highlights the power money has, it seems that if your wallet is full of the ‘greens’ you have the power to do anything. Seemingly in this day and age money and how much you got plays a huge role in your purchasing ability and how extravagant you can go.

How do these elements affect our motoring industry. Cars are becoming more expensive, a Golf GTI exceeds a quarter of a million Rand, while the new BMW 1M is half a million Rand. The BMW M3 is nudging a million Rand, while top end Mercedes Benz models are exceeding a million bucks. The markets have changed, years ago a car designed for the masses is now a top end executive saloon. In stark contrast entry models that introduce customers to the brand have now become the economical, at a price, choices for buyers.
