I bought a maintenance contract with my truck. Dealer pays on oil changes.
It includes brakes and even windshield wipers!
I have them do my state inspections. They find anything wrong, they have to fix it either under warranty or the contract.


So, the polar opposite of someone who is being frugal by trying to save money on parts....
Interested what the high level coverage and cost of a dealer "maintenance contract" and the fine print.
That's like hiring someone to mow your lawn or clean your house. If you can afford the convenience, great, but don't ever pretend it's the "economical" way to go...

My dealer just had a $99.99 special for a diesel. New filter, oil, rotate tires, top off the other fluids. I could not pass that up. Last time I did my own, it cost me around that price, maybe more. It was worth it for the tire rotation. Now when it is time to change the fuel filters, I will do it myself.

First time I ever did this. I figured with towing the TT I’d probably get two brake jobs during the contract and with the oil changes & required maintenance, I’d come close to breaking even $$.
