Every new vehicle that you will find here at Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston comes with a Manufacturer's Limited Warranty, and while this offering is comprehensive and convenient, it will eventually end. Most new car warranties cover your new car for 36 months and 36,000 miles, although this varies on specific makes and models. After this window of coverage, though, the owner becomes more responsible for the cost of unexpected repairs.
These repairs are often inconvenient, but more importantly, expensive. If your transmission fails on the interstate or you need a tow in the middle of the night, the situation can seem overwhelming, but this is where our Extended Service Agreement comes in and helps to get you and your vehicle back on the road, quickly and easily.
No matter where or when disaster strikes, this plan is here to help you. The Extended Service Agreement provides you with 24 Hour Roadside Assistance in both the U.S. and Canada, 24/7, 365 days a year. With this service, you'll receive towing, battery jump start, flat tire change, gasoline delivery, and lock-out assistance.
If a covered part fails and your vehicle must remain at the repair facility overnight, then you'll be provided with substitute transportation in the form of a rental reimbursement. For specific vehicle allowances, please refer to your Extended Service Agreement.
Your original manufacturer's warranty is very comprehensive for the duration that it guarantees coverage. It will cover the majority of your car's parts and can prevent you from incurring large repair bills. However, this warranty will end, and after that, you are liable for major repairs, ranging from transmission replacements to A/C system repairs.
As your vehicle ages and you drive it farther, there is an increased risk that more parts will fail. As the vehicle gets older, the average cost of repairs increases dramatically. For example, a cost to repair a 1 year old car in one visit is less than $100, but after 5 years, that cost skyrockets to more than $600.
Today's cars are more sophisticated and technologically advanced than ever before, but with all of the new tech and convenience features comes more expensive and complex repairs. This means that a new car has parts that are more expensive and complex to repair than an older, less modern vehicle.
