Hi Stuart I am looking at a used Audi and their finance offer at the moment has 2 years servicing and up to 1500 deposit help. It is likely that I may get a lump sum in about 3 months time, if I take the finance and pay off early after 3 months is the servicing offer cancelled and the deposit help repayable?
Hi Chris. If there are any terms and conditions you can see that say that the servicing offer is cancelled if you end the finance early, then you can’t really complain if they do. However, it’s rare that these sorts of T&Cs are spelled out, so they’re not enforceable (and the dealers don’t usually even bother trying as it’s not worth the effort).
Make sure you get proof of the free servicing in writing at time of delivery, rather than relying on a dealer’s promise.
