The new plan is called “Five”, and is made of five years servicing, five years warranty and five years roadside assist. All of this for £500, available on all new Honda models. Honda’s reputation for making reliable and quality vehicles is already really high, but this new “Five” package will give even more warranties to the customers.
Many advantages and peace of mind
There are many advantages for the owner. For a start as the servicing is included, they make sure that the scheduled services are performed correctly by a professional Honda’s dealer without additional costs for five years. This will contribute to keep the car’s residual value higher. For a one fixed price customers are ensured that all the major costs of maintenance are covered for the next five years. The roadside assist service ensures that if your car broke down for any reason, it will be a Honda garage to take care of it using original parts and keeping your vehicle 100% Honda, that again helps keeping the reselling value as high as possible.
To help the sales there are also finance deals that can encourage people to buy new vehicles: a three year zero per cent finance deal is available on Jazz, Civic and CR-V entry level S models. The cost for the Civic and CR-V goes between £209 and £269 per month, and include the cost of the £500 new “Five” aftercare package.
Just what buyers are looking for
All of this is backed up by the technologies incorporated in the vehicles, that make them practical, economic to run and most of all safe. The Jazz for example scored five stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests, with every model including six airbags, anti whiplash head restraints together with Honda’s Vehicle Stability Assist System. Space and practicality are also important characteristics that customers look for, and Honda managed to deliver all of this. The Civic is another example on how this car manufacturer boasted its desirability with good reliability records and improved insurance ratings. Residual values are impressively good and the insurance group is good, so it cuts down costs.
