My car is coming up on her 4th birthday and has just over 45k miles. After looking into it, the BMW extended warranty pricing seemed excessive to me. Here are the numbers I got from my local Easy Care http://www.easycare.com/
dealer (not BMW); I'll be able to service the car at BMW or any other shop I choose. I thought this might be good information for others considering the same thing in the near future.
For a 4yr/100,000 Total Care pricing would be as follows:
100 ded/ $6706
250 ded/ $5137
500 ded/ $4194
For a 3/85,000 Total Care pricing would be as follows:
100 ded/ $4015
250 ded/ $3183
500 ded/ $2682
For a 4/100,000 Stated Care pricing would be as follows:
100 ded/ $4521
250 ded/ $3551
500 ded/ $2968
For a 3/85,000 Stated Care pricing would be as follows:
100 ded/ $2865
250 ded/ $2341
500 ded/ $2032
The website says Total Care covers "more than 100 additional components". I've asked the guy to prepare a couple contracts for me, so I can read through them to better understand the real difference between these two options.
At the moment, I'm leaning toward the 3 yr / 85k mile Stated Care with the $250 deductible. We'll see if more research changes my mind.
I've heard lots of good things about Easy Care on this forum and others, and also from a guy who used to work at my company. Does anyone have any negative experiences with the company and their coverage, or any opinion on Stated Care vs. Total Care?
