Peugeot and Citroen introduce pre-paid service plans

French brands Citroen and Peugeot have followed the industry trend of rolling out pre-paid servicing plans.

They’re offering both three- and five-year plans across their entire ranges, including light commercial vehicles.

The plans are available on all vehicles first sold from October 1, 2021 and commence from the warranty start date.

If you don’t buy a plan at the time of purchasing the car, you can still buy one before the first scheduled service.

Peugeot and Citroen say opting for a pre-paid service plan saves money compared to paying per capped-price service, and like these individual services the cost includes labour, parts, lubricants and sundries.

Not all items are included. For example, a look at the terms and conditions reveal wiper blades, fuses, light bulbs, brake pads, linings, brake discs and clutch components aren’t covered under the cost of the plans.

The service plans can be used at any authorised Peugeot or Citroen dealer, and are fully transferable to new owners.

Three-year service plans range from $900 on a Peugeot 2008 Allure or GT to $1400 on a Peugeot 508 GT or Boxer, with up-front savings – vis-à-vis paying for services individually – of between $378 and $604.

Five-year service plans range from $1600 (2008 Allure, GT) to $2700 (Expert Premium LE, Sport), with savings of between $635 and $1164.

Numerous car brands offer pre-paid servicing plans, including Volkswagen and Hyundai.

Peugeot and Citroen’s introduction of the plans follows the release earlier this year of a new financial services company, allowing the brands to offer guaranteed future value through their Australian dealers.

The GFV program allows customers to sign on the dotted line knowing what their car will be worth at the end of their finance term, provided they meet certain distance limits.

It’s a popular tool among startup or lower-volume brands keen to give prospective buyers confidence in what their cars will be worth, and to allay fears their value will plummet on the secondhand market.

Peugeot and Citroen are part of the Stellantis empire, and are distributed in Australia by Inchcape European Automotive.
