Car Service Plan

Asked by Mar 26, 2017 at 10:22 PM about the 2007 Daihatsu Terios 1.5 SX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all,

How does a car service plan actually work ? I have signed up to a plan with my dealer and paid in £129 via monthly payments. I want my car serviced at £199 for a full service leaving a difference of £70 for me to pay, however, the car dealer said something about I have to pay £99 as there is only have £100 in the pot, what does this mean ? Why have I paid £129 via monthly payments so far and then  have to pay a further £99. It doesn't add up to me I'm afraid. Would love someone to explain. Thanks.

Hi GuruDZ4, as you suggest something doesn't sound right here! Which company is your service plan with? It sounds like there is a discrepancy with the amount of money you have paid in and the amount of money showing in your account/pot. Is the service plan with the same garage that is going to do the servicing work? If so I would request to see the manager and take proof of your service plan payments showing you have paid in £129. If this can be proved then I don't see how they can ask you to pay an additional £99 when it should be £70. Let us know how you get on!

Hi Many thanks for the quick answer. I'm still querying it with the dealer, will let you know how I get on. Thanks
