If you own a car, you’ll know that it’s one of your biggest expenses – not only because of petrol but also maintenance and insurance. Service plans and insurance products are intended to protect you against risks and major expense, but they vary.
When you buy a car, it usually comes with (or you will be given the option to buy) a maintenance product which covers general maintenance costs.
This includes service plans, maintenance plans and warranties. The products offered by vehicle dealers differ, so it’s important that you carefully read the fine print before deciding which option to go for.
