With the advent and rise of social media, it’s easier than ever to spread information across the world in mere moments. This has its upsides, but it also allows for misinformation to spread at an alarming rate—sort of like gossip did in high school. Here at Edmonton BMW we try to stay above the fray, but there’s one persistent (and nasty) little rumor that we’ve heard from time to time, and it’s that BMWs are unreliable vehicles. This couldn’t be further from the truth, so we’re writing this to let you all know the answer to the question, “Are BMWs reliable?” is a resounding yes!
So, are BMWs reliable?
Of course! Finely crafted and tuned, BMW vehicles are some of the most reliable on the market and offer a driving experience like no other. Those who truly love to drive tend to flock to BMW for the unparallelled performance. And not to make assumptions, but generally those who cherish driving a BMW are more willing to put in the work to maintain their BMW. So, rather than ask if a BMW is reliable, why not ask . . .
Are BMWs expensive to maintain?
This is an issue of relativity. BMW is a luxury brand which, while not unattainable as some might believe, still attaches a premium price to premium performance. However, by taking good care of and following the recommended scheduled maintenance your BMW requires, you’re sure to have a reliable vehicle that offers driving thrills at a reasonable price. However, should you not take care of your BMW to the same standard as it was made, you could be looking at an expensive bill down the road. Better to ensure that your BMW is regularly serviced, and it will last you a long time.
How to maintain your BMW
As mentioned above, the best way to maintain your BMW is to ensure it is regularly serviced. This means following the service schedule set forth in your Owner’s Manual. Here at Edmonton BMW, we have a state-of-the-art service department operated by highly-skilled, factory-trained technicians. This means they put in the standard of care set forth by the brand itself, the same standard of care that results in the beautiful, high-octane performance vehicles you find at our dealership. Speaking of, we have a wide selection of Pre-Owned BMWs at our dealership (some from the early 2000s) that we’re willing to stake our reputation on, as being as reliable as they are fun to drive, even as used BMWs.
If you have any questions about your BMW’s reliability, or how often to service your BMW to ensure peak performance, give us a call at Edmonton BMW and we’d be happy to assist.
