Changes to the BMW Maintenance Program That Every Owner Should Know

Earlier this year, BMW took a hard look at their maintenance program and decided to make some rather drastic changes in regards to second owners. In short, the new program states that model year 2015 BMW cars will include the company’s maintenance program only for the initial purchaser, owner or lessee. Additionally, the program will not be transferrable to subsequent owners. But, what does this mean for would-be buyers of a preowned 2015 BMW?

The biggest impact that this has on secondhand owners is the increased importance of regular service and maintenance. Without a comprehensive factory warranty to fall back on, owners will need to pay extra attention to things like oil changes, oil service and BMW Inspection 1 and Inspection 2 services. By having regular maintenance performed on their vehicle, secondhand owners will ensure the long term health of their BMW and, hopefully, avoid more dramatic, costly repairs in the future.

To safeguard your BMW, Atlantic Autowerks recommends a number of comparatively inexpensive and easy services. Oil changes every 3,000 miles with oil services every other time, in addition to routine checkups on your tires, brakes and headlights will help to keep your vehicle in peak condition. Additionally, the factory-defined Inspection 1 and Inspection 2 services ensure that your BMW’s engine continues to run efficiently by performing a comprehensive system diagnostic.
