We design extraordinary cars. It only seems right to offer a service plan to match.
BMW offers a comprehensive suite of premium vehicle maintenance services for absolutely no cost: buy a BMW now and pay no maintenance costs for 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Featuring the following services, BMW Ultimate Service lives up to its name:
New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty: This warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, so you can rest assured your BMW will perform as expected.
BMW Maintenance Program: One of the most comprehensive maintenance programs in its class, covering all factory-recommended maintenance services during the New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty Coverage Period, as well as specific items that require replacement due to normal wear and tear, such as brake pads, brake discs and wiper blade inserts.
Four years of the BMW Assist Safety Plan: Many 2007 and later models include a four-year, unlimited mileage subscription to the BMW Assist Safety Plan including TeleService, an exclusive BMW benefit which allows your vehicle to contact your BMW center directly when it needs service or maintenance.
Unlimited-Mileage Roadside Assistance: Receive Roadside Assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for the first four years of ownership, without any mileage limitation.
It's a service plan so advanced, it's even equipped with peace-of-mind. So while many car owners will incur from several hundred to over one thousand dollars of maintenance or repair costs during the first 4 years they own their vehicles, you pay nothing for the first 4 years or 50,000 miles.
After all, an Ultimate Driving Machine® - and its driver - deserve nothing less than BMW Ultimate Service.
(I haven't paid for a wiper blade or an oil change since 2005)
my family and i have the coolest looking minivan!!! its a 2007 mazda5 . have had it brand new and its never given us any problems whatsoever. my only gripe would be that this model year does not have the rear a/c option. they fixed this for the 2008 model. :D
You get a Honda or you get a BMW. Nothing else really matters. Accord or 5 Series. Pilot or X5. "Good value" quality or "Executive class" quality, pick your poison and be done with it. We're making a decision tonight, get the calculator ready. These are the must-have snow cars.
[QUOTE=SAR I;4245153]Was still in my stupid Acura phase.
That's when I entered my Acura phase. Difference is though is that I got an MDX in 05' and still have it. Runs great - will probably have it another 5 years easy. Don't have any inclination to drive a new car.
But, as one of those suckers who takes his car in to the dealer to get serviced, I've paid a fortune in maintenance over the years.

My epiphany was in '05 when I realized that for $50 a month more than an Acura I could lease a BMW and get it's 100% coverage service plan which was worth it on peace of mind alone, not to mention the status-factor.
The main difference is in car size and toys. Acura gives you the size of a 5 Series at a 3 Series price, throws in lots of fun options at no charge. I decided to live without the 2" of shoulder room and the 4" of body-length and pick just a few of the gadgets that I really needed. Haven't looked back since.
There comes a point where you just want to drive a nicer car, don't want something too pedestrian. When I lived in the NYC area I drove Honda's as they were practical and safe. When I made a little coin I upgraded to Acura's. But when the money started to roll in and I left for NE, twas only a few bucks a month to put me in a BMW and it's 'practicality' comes in the form of the service cost (nothing).
