graememwl wrote:$600 for 3 dealer oil and filter changes is not a bad deal and if you need brakes, it's a great deal.
First of all, $200 for a single oil change is NUTS! "Not bad" would be $50, even at a premium dealer. Keep in mind that the REX uses less oil than most small cars, and access is not at all difficult.
Second of all, the i3 should get at least 100K miles on the first set of brakes, as they get very little use, relative to non-EV and non-hybrid cars.
Third of all, if an expense is not a sure thing, then one would be wise to ONLY buy insurance when the expense would be a hardship. This maintenance plan is an insurance policy. Don't insure things you can afford to cover yourself, unless the payback is highly likely. Never think the insurance companies don't win most of the time. Casinos have worse odds, but not much worse. Smart insurance is truly needed insurance.
Stick your $600 in a savings account, and spend it as needed for maintenance. Do the same for all other insurance type purchases you really don't need, and you will win, even if occasionally a specific plan banked instead of bought would have paid off.
