So I went to New Century, where I bought my car from, and told them my concern. The service advisor told me the same thing and told me to go buy a quart of oil from the part department and they will pour it in. I was lost for a second and ask him why this is not cover by BMW. He told me this is the policy for all North America dealerships and no dealerships will do it. I said" that's funny, because my friend has the same problem and South Bay BMW pour a quart in for free. then he got made and turned way. I was like wtf
, I will take my business somewhere else.
I drove down to BMW at Monrovia, and guess what they did, they top it off for free.
New Century BMW can kiss my business goodbye.
wow, i didnt even think about asking the dealer to top off. i bought 2 liters and put 3/4s of one in to top off. whats the big deal?
