Fair Wear and Tear Guide

A comprehensive maintenance package can be added to your lease contract for an additional fixed monthly cost. This will cover servicing, replacement tyres and other consumable parts. This cover is in addition to the standard full UK Manufacturer’s warranty and at least 12 months’ roadside assistance and recovery that comes with all new vehicles.A maintenance package takes away the risk of paying for expensive and unplanned maintenance costs, offering a fixed monthly fee.

The fair wear and tear occurs when normal usage causes acceptable deterioration to a vehicle, age, mileage and use of the vehicle are taken into account.
