Is Maintenance on a lease good value?

Post by JanH » Wed Jun 09, 2021 1:12 pm

I have been quoted £771 for the life of the 3 year lease am trying to work out if it is good value. We are only doing 5,000 miles a year and over 3 years I wouldn't expect that the tyres would need replacing. However the maintenance includes tyres for wear and tear and puncture. Also how often does the ID3 need servicing? I have read that it only needs an inspection after 2 years, then annually, so I would only need two services over the 3 years. I thought servicing costs would be low, so I am thinking that £771 is not worth it? Advise anyone, thank you. ;)

As no one else has responded, my opinion fwiw is, that sounds like a lot of money for potentially not a lot! Buy £700 in premium bonds and you can cash them in if you need em.

I would say that it really depends on the vehicle. Sometimes on an ICE vehicle with 10k or annual services it can be a good deal, but on an ID3 with ts limited servicing needs I would not bother. Also, your tyres will last the three years at only 5000 per annum.

771£ sounds like a lot to me.
If you are concerned check with a tyre dealer and with VW to see how much it would cost.
They may be giving you some added extras so check the policy

I was quoted for a service plan which covered two services. The second of these would be in year four given the ID.3 schedule. If you're leasing, it makes sense to renew after three years. The plan would be attached to the vehicle so I would probably not have used the second service.

Personally, I just set money aside every month to cover these costs.

Thank you so much everyone, that is what I thought, so we are not going with the maintenance.

I did not choose the maintenance either. I felt there's a lot less to go wrong (famous last words).
