Thank you for keeping to your word and for a speedily response. Thanks, the motor vehicle is happy.

Dumsani

Been covered with MotorHappy going on 2 years now and they have paid out each time when my car was due for a service at the dealership…this one time they paid for replacement of brake pads, a full service (more than once) and wiper blades – sounds unreal but I’m a happy reference.
