Subaru Southern Africa has launched an extended 5-year or 120 000 km comprehensive Maintenance Plan offered on selected new Subaru models.
All Subaru models are generally offered with a 3-year or 75 000 km Maintenance Plan but this limited-time offer has been introduced and will remain in place for time only. The Subaru Maintenance Plan covers all routine servicing as well as maintenance and mechanical repairs required as a result of normal wear and tear. In addition to this, the plan includes Subaru Assist roadside service which includes emergency and map assistance too.
This extended Maintenance Plan offer is offered at no additional cost to the customer and forms part of the retail price of a new Subaru. “Maintenance Plans afford our customers additional peace of mind and confidence in owning a new Subaru,” says Subaru SA Marketing Lead, Nteo Nkoli. “We’re constantly assessing how we can further our customer’s Confidence in Motion and this is yet another way we can do that.”
Further to the predictability and peace of mind ownership that a Maintenance Plan offers, Nteo notes that “it also offers better value for money especially during the economically challenging conditions facing South Africa right now.”
Further to the 5-year or 120 000 km Maintenance Plan, all new Subaru models sold are warranted against any defect in material or workmanship for a period of five years or 150 000 km, whichever comes first. Nteo adds, “We are aware of a lot of customers who make the mistake of thinking that Maintenance Plans are the same as Service Plans. These are very different programmes and certainly our Maintenance Plan is far more comprehensive and safer for the consumer.” Service Plans cover the cost of routing services as per the vehicle handbook – and that’s it. Maintenance Plans include wear items such as brakes, shocks, windscreen wipers and more.
