I've been looking at the ford protect premium plan on ford's website, and the prices for 2 and 3 year cover (servicing and breakdown) for the fiesta are only £330 and £550 respectively. This is includes brake fluid at 2 years and is much cheaper than the fixed price servicing from my local dealer (come 3 years it's over £200 cheaper!). I haven't had a recent quote for a plan from the dealer but when I bought the car I was offered a £600 3 year plan.
I'm sure a few years back these ford plans cost a lot more than dealer servicing so what's changed? I'm very tempted by this now but I can't help wondering if there's a catch or something to it. I thought maybe the services wouldn't cover as much but seeing as they all cover the same items this can't be the case.
Anyone got one of these plans or any experience of them?
