Hi, I've been offered by my Kia dealership a service plan for my EV6 at £872.87 to include 2 Mot's, the 20,000 & 40,000 services plus a 12 Month Vehicle Inspection.
This seems a bit expensive on first glance.
What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks for your time Alan

Sounds expensive, when I was collecting car yesterday was quoted £307 for the two services. Didnt include anything else, but MOT can vary around the £50 mark currently.

This must be a unique thing to your dealer as Kia are still yet to offer any service plans on the EV6 cars.

As for the price, it's a difficult one as it seems to be a very difficult subject to discuss with the dealers as Kia do not seem to be very forward with costs.

i assume if they are saying two MOT's then that's a 5 year or 6 year plan.

Personally, I don't believe any Dealer Plan is worth purchasing. If you do, you are stuck with that dealer only. If you fall out with them or move location or just don't like the way they handle your vehicle, you're stuck. You've paid your money up front and are left with two choices. Walk away and abandon the plan, or suck it up and have the work done by an organisation you no longer wish to do business with! If you wait for a Kia deal to be offered for sale, you have the choice of any Kia dealer in the country, or even an independant so long as they use Kia service schedules and genuine Kia parts. I know which one I'll be choosing! 😃

Shouldn't the 12 month check be November 2022?

The only service other than "inspect" is replacing the cabin air filter every 16,000 miles for the first 48,000 miles. As long as you can check your own brake fluid and coolant levels, I'd not get a service plan.

Thanks for all the inputs. As I said it did seem a bit on the expenses side.
And now I've had your feedback feeling it even more.
Ps do like the car so far though😁👍

2 MOTs = £110
Vehicle inspection= can often be got free
So that leaves £762 for two services.
That Kia dealership seems to think they’re servicing Bentleys!
Nissan charge £150 for a Leaf minor service and £250 for major - I can’t imagine the EV6 costing much more than that, it might be bigger but it’s still electric with not that much to check/replace.
