BMW Maintenance Cost

2021 BMW X5 M


If you are shopping for a luxury vehicle like a new BMW, you may be wondering about the maintenance costs associated with the model you select. Are BMW models expensive to maintain? It is a common misconception that German cars are significantly more expensive to maintain than their rivals. While BMW repair costs may be a bit more pricey because premium parts are required, that does not always mean that you will spend substantially more for maintenance over the life of your vehicle. 

Because BMW vehicles are expertly crafted and built to last, they do not require as many visits to a service department as some of their competitors in many instances. So, while individual service visits may be a bit more costly, the fact that they will be required less frequently helps to offset that cost. So does impressive warranty coverage. If you are wondering about the average maintenance costs for BMW models, the automotive experts at Perillo BMW explore this more in-depth below. 

Average Maintenance Costs for BMW Luxury Vehicles

So, what is the average BMW maintenance cost? While this amount can vary based on a variety of factors like the vehicle itself, your driving habits, and more, BMW owners tend to pay somewhere around $1,000 to $1,700 per year for maintenance and repairs. There are different warranty programs available to help cover some of those costs and make BMW repair costs even more affordable. 

  • BMW Ultimate Care: With BMW Ultimate Care, the original owner can enjoy comprehensive maintenance coverage for the life of the vehicle. You have the option of expanding this coverage to include BMW Ultimate Care Scheduled, Ultimate Care+, Ultimate Care Oil Services, and Value Service programs.
