Reeds Bellville and Opel South Africa are committed to providing you with customer service of the highest standard, and that includes free roadside assistance when purchasing a car from our dealership. When you buy a new car from us, Opel SA will provide you with free membership of our comprehensive assistance programme called Opel SA Driver Support Plan that lasts for 5 years from date of first registration or 120 000 kilometres of your car's life, whichever comes first. This applies to all new cars purchased after March 23, 2009.
The support plan helps to make your new car ownership safe and problem-free. Being a member is like having your very own personal assistant, a mere phone call away on:
The Driver Support Plan will rush to your aid wherever you are, to provide assistance with flat tyres, flat batteries, to deliver fuel in case yours has run out (fuel is at owner’s cost) and to assist with keys accidently locked in your car.
In the unlikely event of a car breakdown, Opel SA Driver Support Plan will arrange for your car to be towed by an approved towing operator, to the nearest authorised Opel SA dealership, or where possible, send a qualified technician to assist you with the problem.
If necessary, Opel SA Driver Support Plan will arrange free safe storage for your car for up to 48 hours.
Repatriation of cars
Should you have to leave your car for repairs at an authorised Opel SA Dealership located more than 100 km from your home, Opel SA Driver Support Plan will arrange to have your car returned to you free of charge or assist you to return to your car.
Should you be stranded further than 100 km from your home or destination due to your car undergoing un-scheduled repairs, Opel SA Driver Support Plan will provide you with alternative transport, either to your home or planned destination. This service is available in South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia and Botswana subject to specific terms and conditions.
In the event of a breakdown further than 100 km from your home or destination, we will arrange either accommodation or an alternative car to enable you to reach your destination, as well as relay urgent messages and provide telephonic directions.
Opel SA Driver Support Plan will supply you with information regarding your car, including general info (fuel & oil recommendations), service intervals, tyre maintenance, warning systems, accessory enquiries or Dealer locations and telephone numbers. Regular performance assessments ensure that all Opel SA services meet our strict standards and that your ‘personal assistant’ is always ready and waiting any hour of the day or night, 365 days a year. All you have to do is call to take advantage of the superior services offered by the Driver Support Plan.
