Manufacturer service intervals apply. Services are at customer expense from our base line service menu, oil, filter and fluids and safety check.

Terms & Conditions

To keep the Mechanical Protection Plan valid you must have your car serviced only at our service centre. If your vehicle is still under manufacturer’s cover, you will enjoy the benefits of the extended plan if the car is serviced by us, in accordance with the specifications set out in the owner’s manual at prevailing rates, until that warranty expires. If you choose to have these services done elsewhere you may not necessarily void your Manufacturer’s Warranty, however we will not be able to offer you our extended coverage. Any claims/repairs must be taken back to our dealership unless you are outside a 50km radius from the Dealership, then you should contact 0800 700 004 to get an authorisation. A claim will not be paid without an authorisation number. The plan covers wear and tear of all covered components. Services done elsewhere will not be approved or recognised. The cover provided by the plan begins on the expiry of your Manufacturer’s Full Warranty, but the Terms & Conditions start from day one. This Contract is not transferable. Refer to the Mechanical Protection Plan booklet for complete terms and conditions including full benefits.
