Volkswagen Australia has introduced a new fixed price servicing program for cars between four and 15 years old.
Known as 4Plus Care, the plans are offered as two-year or four-year packages, comprising basic essential service inclusions as well as brake fluid changes and cabin filter replacements.
Plans can be purchased either online or through a Volkswagen dealership, with a quick CarAdvice comparison finding prices range between $578-$638 for a two-year plan, and between $1021-$1125 for a four-year plan, depending on the model and age of the vehicle.
By comparison, Volkswagen's fixed-price servicing for new models ranges from $1800-$2500 for a five-year plan, or between $990-$1500 for a three-year plan, depending on the model.
Even if buyers are planning on selling or passing on their car in a couple of years' time, the plans can remain with the vehicle and are upheld even in the event of a transfer of ownership.
Owners are also able to renew for another two or four years after the initial service period has run out.
Services are carried out using genuine Volkswagen parts and intervals are every 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first.
All new Volkswagen vehicles come with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, regardless of whether the vehicle is serviced within the Volkswagen network or not.
