Many customers have asked why we charge for our scheduled maintenance package while some of our competitors offer it free.
The simple answer is that nothing is free. Whether you realize it or not you are paying for that maintenance in the price of the vehicle. What is not as obvious is that when the manufacturer includes maintenance often times the level of service is left to the discretion of the individual dealer. At a fixed internal cost, you may or may not be getting all that you thought.
I have also heard that because the maintenance is “free” some customers have misinterpreted this to mean the car is “maintenance free”. There are many cases where leased vehicles have been returned without having any maintenance performed during the span of the lease.
The Prepaid Maintenance packages we offer are tailored to your driving needs whether you are a low or high mileage driver. The price of the packages do provide you with tangible savings over the cost of “pay-as-you-go”. When included with your vehicle purchase, you can build the cost into your lease or finance payments giving you additional cash flow flexibility. Also when added to a lease a portion of that cost is residualized meaning that some of that cost is added to the end value which you are not paying for (unless you decide to purchase the vehicle at lease end).
All in all adding our Prepaid Maintenance should be a no brainer.
