As part of owning a car, it is your job to maintain it.

In order to keep up the routine maintenance of a new vehicle the dealership where you purchased it will offer a service plan up to a certain amount of mileage or years, usually 5 years and 150 000km. This routine maintenance involves the changing of fluids, spark plugs and filters, the wear and tear parts of the car.

These are the small parts of the car that ensure it runs smoothly every day of the week. With MotorHappy this service plan can form part of your car insurance, with the benefits of being able to be supplied with genuine parts, qualified technicians, and depending on your vehicle the use of OEM parts ( Original Equipment Manufacturer). This service will also be available at a fixed monthly cost and covers parts such as:

  • Air filter
  • Transmission fluid
  • Oil filter
  • Fuel filter
  • Coolants
  • Spark plugs
  • Brake and Clutch fluid
  • Engine oil

MotorHappy Maintenance Plan

  • Clutch and clutch cables
  • Rear brake discs

As part of signing up with each of these car insurances, you receive benefits directly from MotorHappy. These would be described as emergency or roadside assistance benefits in the event of breakdowns.
