    Service plan - is £16 per month reasonable? 18th Jun 17 at 1:31 PM
    I have recently purchased a new car, 15 plate, so it will be due a service in March 2018.

    From the place I got it from, I have been offered a pay monthly service plan for £16 per month.

    Does this seem a reasonable monthly price to pay? How does it compare to what other people are paying?

    Thanks

    We need a lot more information. What type of garage is it? Is it an independent or a main dealer? What type of car is it? How long does the plan last for and how many services does it include? What type of services are included?

    If next year's service is a minor which is an oil and filter change, you might be paying £192 for 4 litres of oil, an oil filter and a bit of labour which isn't good value.

    Does the service just cover the service or are parts and liquids included?

    How about you give us a clue. What's the car? How many miles has it done? What is included in the next service?

    For what it's worth, thats cheap for a Ferrari service. But could be about right for a minor service on a fiesta.

    Not sure what car you have but we pay £11 a month ( for 3 services) for a seat Leon bought new a year ago
