No-cost maintenance? What are you going to tell me next?"

When you own The Ultimate Driving Machine®, you should get the service to match, for no cost. As part of BMW Ultimate Service®, when you buy a new BMW, it includes maintenance costs for 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. This alone, can save you up to $2,000 in maintenance costs compared to other luxury vehicles.

Is all of this really true? Yes, it is. Learn more about all of the services under the BMW Ultimate Service Program below.


New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty

Every new BMW is covered by a limited warranty for defects in materials or workmanship for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

The warranty period begins either on the date of first retail sale, or the date the vehicle is first placed in service as a demonstrator, service loaner or company vehicle, whichever is earlier. And from that moment on, your BMW is protected during the coverage period, regardless of whether you’re the first owner or a subsequent owner.

Rust protection for 2006 and newer models.
For 2006 and newer models, we also provide a 12-year limited warranty rust perforation warranty without mileage limitation. This warranty is for defects in materials or workmanship that results in rust perforation of the vehicle body. This coverage period begins at the start of the New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty.

BMW Extended Vehicle Protection option*
You may be eligible to purchase additional mechanical breakdown protection coverage for up to an additional 4 years or 50,000 miles. Available for purchase any time up to 7 years or 79,999 miles from the original in-service date of your vehicle, the BMW Extended Vehicle Protection program offers extensive BMW backed coverage which, when combined with our New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty, covers your vehicle for a total of up to 7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first depending on the coverage option chosen.

If your BMW requires repairs, simply schedule an appointment with an authorized BMW center, where a specially trained BMW certified technician will make the required repairs using only original BMW parts. This will help ensure that your vehicle is repaired to meet our specifications and you can be confident that your BMW will be just as thrilling to drive after the repair as it was before.

Certain limitations and exclusions apply to these coverages; please refer to your Service and Warranty Information booklet for coverage, terms and conditions.

For complete information on coverage and limitations, see your local authorized BMW center.

For most luxury cars, maintenance is a hidden cost to consider. And when you compare maintenance programs, it’s clear they’re not all the same.

In fact, the BMW Maintenance Program* is one of the most comprehensive programs in its class and it offers the longest coverage period.

We cover all factory-recommended maintenance at no charge for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, as well as specific items that require replacement due to normal wear and tear.

Your maintenance costs:

• Engine Oil Services: $0
• Inspection Services: $0
• Wiper Blade Inserts: $0
• Brake Pads: $0
• Brake Discs: $0
• Engine Drive Belts: $0
• Brake Fluid Service: $0

By offering such a comprehensive maintenance program with every new vehicle, we’re able to help you manage the cost of ownership and keep maintenance costs down.

And since all services are done at an authorized BMW center by a BMW certified technician who has been specially trained by us, we can ensure that only original BMW parts will be used. In other words, your BMW will be maintained to our standards, which are admittedly higher than most.

To receive applicable maintenance services at no cost, just schedule an appointment at your local authorized BMW center while your vehicle is covered by the maintenance program. Your BMW center will determine and perform the needed factory-recommended services that are covered by the BMW Maintenance Program.

For even greater protection, we offer the optional BMW Maintenance Program Upgrade.
**If your vehicle is eligible, you may be able to purchase an upgrade, which provides your vehicle with 2 years/50,000 miles additional maintenance coverage. When purchased, this upgrade extends your total maintenance coverage period up to 6 years/100,000 miles. This upgrade option also extends the standard 4 years/unlimited mileage BMW Roadside Assistance Program benefit period by an additional 2 years/unlimited mileage for a total of 6 years/unlimited mileage.

*Certain limitations and exclusions apply to this program; please see your local authorized BMW Center for details or visit www.bmwusa.com/mpupgrade.

BMW Assist™ Safety and Convenience Plan

Imagine a travel companion who knows the directions, traffic and weather and can pick out the best destination, whether a fine restaurant, four-star hotel, or well-hidden tourist attraction. That companion can be with you all the time—at just the touch of your Concierge button in your BMW. The address and phone number can even be sent to most BMWs, then transferred to your BMW navigation system or Bluetooth® phone for route guidance or to make the call. We can tell you the airline gate and arrival or departure time, as well as the best fuel prices and availability. These services, and more, are available when you enroll in the optional BMW Assist Convenience Plan.

It’s the ideal complement to your BMW Assist Safety Plan, which comes with most new models for four years at no additional cost, as part of BMW Ultimate Service. When you combine the BMW Assist Safety Plan with the Convenience Plan, you enjoy peace of mind whenever you’re behind the wheel.

Your new services will include:

• Directions to a street address or point of interest.
• Traffic information along your route or around your BMW.
• Weather conditions and forecasts locally, at your destination or any other place.
• Critical Calling provides up to four, five-minute operator-assisted calls per year for those times when you don’t have your cell phone or its battery is discharged.
