Hello – Sorry, if I`m a misunderstanding, but just to clarify: if I want to take my car back to the same dealership, I have the PCP agreement with when the contract ends, and exchange it for one of your cars… does it matter if it has not been maintained by one of their official dealers? Hey, Chanelle. If your contract stipulates that maintenance must be done by a licensed garage owner (and probably also), then the leasing company will almost certainly try to charge you a penalty if you return the car. Hey, Zoe. The maintenance of your vehicle must be carried out in an official service centre for the brand of the vehicle, but usually does not repair in a financing contract. The car must be kept in good condition, which means that the financial company would expect everything to work properly. Hey, Sazz. I would try to see if you can get a service faster from another Mercedes dealership. Details of your contractual service requirements must be written in your financing agreement, or you can call the financial company and verify them.
Good morning. My son bought a BMW with a PCP contract. The seller advised that there would be free services x2. The car is now a service. When checking documents, there is no mention of free service. Is there anything we can do to avoid juicy service charges. I know my son was naïve not to check the papers at first. The big difference with a PCP financing company is that you don`t pay the same payments at the end of the deal to own your car. Wear parts, such as brake pads, should not be replaced until they reach the end of their lifespan, but the garage must inform you in its maintenance report of the remaining life of these parts.
Hey, Donna. The old offer of “free services” is going on a lot; he has to go back to the dealership and get confirmation of free maintenance, but they might deny any knowledge of that. If you haven`t written it, it doesn`t exist… No wonder motorists like to shop for maintenance, but how do you know which garage they should use and are there occasions when you have to use one type of garage or workshop via another? Below, we answer your most frequent questions about the service. The advantage is that you own the car directly at the end of your contract, with no grand final payment (only one replacement sum). But that means the deal can change more, including the values of used cars. You often pay extra when you decide you want to reduce your PCP agreement sooner. With the additional option of final payment of the ball if you decide to keep and own your car. There are three essential elements of a typical CFP agreement: in short, yes. Each car must be maintained for it to function properly.
Regular maintenance ensures that your car works first and foremost safely and efficiently. Diesel engines, in particular, have complex treatment systems that require regular maintenance, while their fuel injectors and filters need to be cleaned or replaced regularly. With a PCP, you can terminate your contract at any time and return the car and pay half the price of the PCP — that`s what the “half rule” is called.
