People who own BMW vehicles usually respect the luxury design and engineering of their vehicle. BMWs are engineered to perform with power and precision. If you own a BMW, you should take your vehicle in to the mechanic regularly for BMW service to ensure your vehicle is performing at its optimum efficiency. BMW service will allow the mechanics to check your vehicle for potential repairs, warn you about upcoming repairs, and change fluids and other minute things to prevent unnecessary repairs.
However, even if you take your vehicle in for BMW service at the suggested intervals, it is not guaranteed that you will avoid all repairs. Some BMW repairs, like brake pads, occur from general wear-and-tear of your vehicle. Your service mechanic should be able to warn you about when a repair of that nature can be expected.
If you have taken your BMW to the dealership for repair or service, you might consider getting a second opinion by an independent mechanic. Dealerships often charge more for standard BMW service and repair than an independent mechanic. Just make sure that the independent mechanic is an ASE certified BMW specialist.
Some people are concerned that by taking their BMW to an independent mechanic, the vehicle’s warranty will be nullified. That’s not true, as long as the mechanic is a BMW certified mechanic. Here is what Bank Rate says about warranties with independent mechanics:
“A lot of people think you have to go to a dealer for maintenance to keep your warranty and that’s absolutely not true,” says Bill Csogi, an 18-year ASE certified master mechanic. He owns Car Critic of Naples, Fla., an automotive inspection, appraisal and investigation company.
