    Default Complete Motoring Plan ??

    Just reading through the bumpff for the vauxhall complete motoring plan,

    Basically it says that for £15 a month all your servicing and repairs are covered, pre paying in effect, and all the parts etc are covered if any work is needed during the service as well

    Anyone tried this, is it as good as it sounds, seems like a good deal to me,(though most repairs would be a warranty job anyway?) no surprise bills or service bills though ..

    Just curious as to whether anyone has taken it out and how it worked ?

    Sounds like a very good idea to me, work out the cost of your servicing etc based on your expected mileage, you may be better off with the plan or better off just paying as you go so to speak.

    It wasn't offered to me on my Signum, but I bought it at 6 months old, possibly only offered to new buyers.

    I like the sound of it though

    I think this is also an option with Network Q cars, I'm sure (99%) that I was offered it with mine.

    That seems a good deal mate, the servicing wouldn't be that far away from that figure anyway.

    Check the small print though for what is excluded, there could be so many exclusions that it's not worth it.

    Obviously tyres, brakes etc won't be covered, but there could be other things also.

    Well that is mine used up and exhausted

    There are two levels
    The basic one is servicing only, to which MOT Insurance can be added
    The upper level is warranty and servicing, including MOT Insurance

    I paid for 120K miles over three years
    This would have entitled me to six services (based on 20K mile intervals)
    However I only did 91K miles and used up five services

    The dealership was a bit confused to begin with
    Firstly, they didn't provide me with any paperwork on completion of the work, as this goes to Vauxhall Retailer Warranties (as they are paying for it)
    Secondly they tried to charge me for some items, however a quick phone call to the warranty company and the matter was resolved, "I didn't know Vauxhall did a warranty that paid for all that"

    On the second service I noticed the dealership had used the wrong oil (the cheaper 10W40 oil)
    Vauxhall confirmed for me that the GM-LL oil should have been used
    An oil change was completed free of charge, plus a note added to the vehicle record that only GM-LL specification oil was to used
    At each service from then on it then showed up

    The warranty paid for just about any and all component failures
    This included brake pads and discs
    The only item I had to pay for was a replacement headlight switch, the bulbs within it had failed but the switch was still working, so the claim was declined

    Sadly (or maybe that should be thankfully) I never made a claim on the MOT insurance, as the car passed them all
    The only thing to note is the limit here was £750, with a £10 excess

    One lesson I did make, towards the end of the policy, is to ensure the dealership phones up and lists ALL the work they plan to carry out BEFORE it commences
    This was helpful when claiming for the car hire
    This then allows you to hire your own car and claim back the costs, less the first day, up to seven days

    At the end of three years I have had :
    Five standard services
    Three sets of front brake pads
    One set of front brake pads and discs
    Two sets of rear brake pads and discs
    CIM module
    Nearside front suspension arm and bushes
    Offside front hub and wheel bearing
    High pressure fuel pump SCVs
    Offside front brake caliper
    Clutch hydraulic control pressure valve

    The policy cost £1440
    Up to 3 years / 60K miles was £25 per month (based on a car 1 to 2 years old), plus a further £5 per month per 20K miles (making it £15 per month for 60K miles)
    The refund is £150 (net £1290)

    Had I known I would only have done 91K miles, the policy would have cost me £1260 with no refund

    Looking at your previous post, it looks to me as though it was quite a decent deal, any idea roughly what the costs would have been had you not taken the cover out?

    I would think however that you had your money's worth, you got through some pads there matey..lol My old Vec-150 still had the original pads on when it was sold at 39k miles...lol a record even for me. Probably due to all the motorway use I used to do.

    Do VX still do that cover plan ?

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    39K miles isn't that good for pads. Mine went to 75K (rears) and 78K (front)

    M8internet did seem to make a few claims on his. I guess this is 'luck' of the draw.

    If I had taken it out I would have been seriously out of pocket.

    In 132,000 miles of motoring in 4 1/2 years I have needed the following

    Rear brake pads - £20
    Front brake pads - £25
    Rear brake pads due to uneven wear when the retaining clip failed - £20
    6 services (£30 x 6) - using long life oil - £180
    Air filter x 1 - £10
    Brake fluid change - £5
    Cambelt kit changes x 2 - £120
    Front road spring x 1 - £35


    Total £415. Ok, there are no labour charges on that as I have done it myself


    The car also has had the clutch and radio replaced under warranty.

    To be fair Ste if you put labour on that it there is a significant difference.

    Agree... and those prices are unbelievably cheap Ste, even without labour costs, a brake fluid change for £5 ?

    I could do with using your dealer myself..
