Adding to the list of things we can pay for monthly is Vauxhall, with its new car care package. It starts from a reasonable £19 a month.
The scheme includes three years’ servicing and roadside assistance cover, with the first MOT also thrown in. It builds upon the existing three-year warranty and one-year Vauxhall Assistance package when you buy any new Vauxhall.
The roadside assistance includes both home-start and recovery – good peace of mind for your first three years of motoring in your new car.
While the package costs £19 per month for petrol-powered cars, diesels are a little pricier, at £22 per month. Overall, you’ll end up paying £684 over three years with a petrol car, or £792 with a diesel. A one-off up-front payment for the total is available.
Given servicing is quoted on Vauxhall’s website as ‘£159 for interim or £259 for a main service’, you can expect to pay £567 just in servicing over three years. That means three years of breakdown and home-start, plus the car’s first MOT, costs you £117. Not too bad, by our reckoning.
