BMW Maintenance Program: 6 Years/100,000 Miles
“Our decision to make the six-year Maintenance Program Upgrade available to purchase for all BMW models makes it possible for more vehicles to remain under the care of an authorized BMW Center for a longer period of time, and that’s the best way to ensure longevity for each vehicle,” Alan Harris, Vice President of Aftersales for BMW of North America motivated the company's decision.
The process of purchasing the upgraded maintenance program can be done in the first five years or 60,000 miles of the vehicle's service life. The program is extended on the vehicle through the sixth year of service or 100,000 total vehicle miles, whichever comes first. In addition, the coverage stays with the vehicle rather than the buyer, so a BMW’s second or even third owner may benefit from the coverage.
All 2009 model year BMWs feature Ultimate Service, a suite of services that includes the BMW Maintenance Program (formerly called Full Maintenance), Roadside Assistance (no-charge for the first four years and no mileage limit) and the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. BMW Assist with TeleService (automatically notifies the BMW center when a vehicle will need service) is part of the optional Premium Package or can be ordered separately as a stand-alone option.
“BMW is committed to helping North American owners maintain their vehicles properly,” added the official.
