MOTORING NEWS - Have you ever wondered about the differences between a maintenance plan, a service plan and a warranty?
A maintenance plan covers pretty much everything that has a wear cycle and will need to be replaced at some point during the car's lifespan; a service plan, on the other hand, only covers the basics like routine oil changes and labour.
Here's a brief explanation of all three:
A maintenance plan is more comprehensive than a service plan and includes parts which suffer from wear and tear.
A service plan covers the basics: labour, replacement filters, cam belts, brake fluid, oil changes, spark plugs and coolant. These services should be provided by your dealer in order to ensure that the terms of your service plan are adhered to.
The manufacturer's warranty is a promise from the brand, which ensures you're receiving only top quality parts. Essentially, it covers the main components in your vehicle.
