Hi,

Me and the wife ordered our Arona FR this week, red body black roof (seems a popular choice :D )

This our first Seat and it's also our first brand new car. We're really excited but a bit baffled by the service maintenance plan. We've had a few quotes from the dealer, 1st was for servicing, maintenance and tyres for 3 years, was £35. Second was for 4 yrs, no tires was £32. New set quote is 4 yrs serving, maintenance, tyres and its £45!!!!! Is this normal because it seems very expensive to me.

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask this in so apologies if it should be elsewhere :D

What's everyone else's experience with the service plans?

Thanks

Slot of it comes down to how long you are going to keep the car and how many miles your going to do. I assume the figures you've given are per month?.if that's the case then over 400 pound a year is alot of money. The first service is about 150 and the second about 280 (which you'll have paid for in a year). If I were you I would go back and see if they can do a deal over the first 2 years. My friend who purchased an arona I think has paid about 280 for the first 2.

Thanks for the reply.

I've signed up to a 4 year pcp deal. I've said I'll do a max of 16000 miles a year, mostly to be on the safe side. I was told by the salesperson that I couldn't have the 2 year service maintenance plan that's in the brochures because it's a brand new car and they were for used or "alreday registered" new cars

£45 a month is for servicing maintenance and tyres for the 4 years, the idea being that it should be worry free and cover the cost of everything, which might be about right, I don't really know. Just seems a bit steep.

If you are really going to do 16000pa you should be on the long life service which would equate to 3 services at about £600 total plus say 6 or perhaps 8 tyres at £100 each, so a grand total of £1400 or so. If you pay £45 per month for 47 months it will cost you £2115. So even if you need another service and another couple of tyres you would still be saving money by going it alone.

I guess it is down to what you want to do, also remember year 4 is not covered by warranty unless bought additionally.
