What does a car maintenance plan cover?



From car towing services to cover for your vehicle’s wear and tear, a car maintenance plan has loads of benefits.


A car maintenance plan takes care of any services your car needs, and also covers wear-and-tear items, unscheduled repairs, andparts and labour that aren’t included in a less comprehensive car service plan.

So, let’s say your next service is only due in 2 000km time, but your brakes are squeaking and not working optimally. A maintenance plan will generally cover the cost of the replacement of brake pads, plus the labour. Without this plan, you probably would have had to pay for these yourself, as waiting another few weeks to fix something as critical as brakes might not be the best option.

With a MotorHappy maintenance plan, you’ll get the following benefits:

  • Peace of mind that your car services are taken care of
  • All OEM** required services and parts
  • Fixed, affordable monthly cost for scheduled maintenance
  • Qualified technicians doing the repairs
  • Genuine parts
  • Cover of specificwear-and-tear items
  • Roadside assistance such as:

Message relay

In the event of a mechanical breakdown or electrical failure, a message will be sent to a family member, friend or business associate on request.

Tyre change
