How Do MotorEasy BMW Warranties Compare To BMW’s Extended Car Warranty?

BMW comprehensive warranty excludes wear and tear, whereas a MotorEasy car warranty covers consequential damage and failures due to wear and tear. With MotorEasy you’re connected to a network of over 10,000 garages nationwide for repairs to be completed, but with BMW all repairs must be carried out by an authorised BMW retailer or service workshop. In addition MotorEasy’s repair limit matches the value of your car, giving you peace of mind in almost every possibility.  

 

BMW reliability: common BMW repairs

The MotorEasy Reliability Index measures the dependability of a car, as an average of the frequency and cost of repairs for over 1,200 models. It reveals some of the hidden costs of ownership, as well as the likelihood of something going wrong. Each model is given a reliability score ranging from -100 (red), for a high frequency and/or high cost of repair, through to +100 (green), where there is a low frequency and cost of repair.

The index also includes model-specific data on:

  • The typical repairs needed for each model, including the percentage of claims for engine, gearbox, electrical system, suspension, braking system and fuel system repairs.
  • Common repairs you would be covered for with a BMW warranty
  • The average cost for each of the above types of repairs

BMW warranty FAQs

What does a BMW warranty cover?

A warranty direct from BMW covers:

  • The costs of repairing or replacing the factory fitted mechanical & electrical components of your vehicle that have suffered sudden failure (including as a result of water ingress of a covered part) during the period of cover.
  • The costs of consequential failure of a covered component.

All of these claims are subject to the maximum claims limit and the terms and conditions of the specific policy.

A MotorEasy BMW warranty covers all the same things as an BMW extended warranty but with the addition of:

  • Wear & Tear cover
  • Overheating failures
  • Air conditioning issues

 

How much is a BMW extended warranty?

BMW warranty cover starts at £675 for a 3 year old 1 Series - The equivalent MotorEasy warranty is £505 saving you (on average) £170.
While BMW will cover the first 100,000 miles & charge an excess up to £250.00, MotorEasy will cover up to 120,000 with a highest excess charge of £50.00.

A MotorEasy extended warranty is a lot chepaer than BMW! The popular 3 series starts at £505.00 with MotorEasy whereas with BMW it costs almost £200 more! Almost 30% cheaper with MotorEasy. You also get a free health check included, which means your wear & tear cover can start immediately after the health check unlike the BMW warranty which does not cover general wear and tear.

In the event of a claim, you also won’t have to pay the £250 excess fee as detailed in BMW’s low cost warranty option. In contrast, a MotorEasy warranty gives you the flexibility to choose a modest repair contribution of £0, £25 or £50, as a way to lower the cost of your premium.

All things considered, a MotorEasy warranty compared to an BMW extended warranty is:

  • Less expensive - by as much as 30%
  • Offers more cover, notably for general wear & tear
  • Won’t hit you with an expensive excess fee
  • Gives you more flexibility to choose a modest repair contribution to lower your premium cost
  • Includes a free vehicle health check

 

What is a BMW warranty?

A BMW warranty is provided at the time you purchase the vehicle. In the UK that covers 3 years and unlimited mileage. To maintain that cover you need to follow the manufacturer servicing guidelines, and stay within the mileage limits outlined above. NB - You can get your car serviced at any garage that uses approved BMW parts in order to satisfy those servicing guidelines.

It comes in 3 variants:

  • Comprehensive - which covers the cost of repairing and/or replacing the mechanical & electrical components of your vehicle that were factory-fitted if they fail during the cover period.
  • Named component cover which serves a similar purpose to the all component cover but where fewer parts are included - the less expensive & less comprehensive cover
  • Driveline which only covers the main engine, transmission & drive train components. Claims are limited to £5,000 - which might be a bit limiting if your engine suffers a serious failure. NB - All types of warranty have eligibility criteria that you should check carefully 

A MotorEasy extended warranty is the same idea. It provides cover for the cost of repairing factory-fitted mechanical and electrical parts on your car - outside of the original manufacturer warranty period. Usually 3 years with any BMW bought in the UK.

There are some additional benefits with an extended BMW Warranty from MotorEasy:

  • General Wear & Tear cover which you don’t get with an BMW extended warranty
  • Coverage for vehicles up to 120,000 miles (100,000 with BMW extended warranty)
  • 12, 24 or 36 month cover (12 months with BMW)

This isn’t an exhaustive list. You can see the full list —> check what’s covered

 

How can I check if my BMW has a warranty?

If you bought your car new in the UK, and it is less than 3 years old and done fewer than 100,000 miles. You have a new car warranty cover.

 

How long is a BMW warranty?

A BMW extended warranty lasts for 12 months and you can only take out cover if your car has less than 100,000 miles on the clock whereas a MotorEasy extended warranty can be for 12, 24 or 36 months and you can take out cover up to 120,000 miles.

 

How do I get a BMW warranty extension?

If you’re looking for a MotorEasy BMW extended warranty - with all of its additional benefits - you can get a BMW warranty quote. Just enter your registration number. BMW warranty extensions are purchased online, if you are looking to extend after the end of your original warranty period.

 

Is it worth getting a BMW extended warranty?

Yes, It’s definitely worth it. As well made as BMW’s are they can (and do) still go wrong. It’s especially important when your new car warranty has expired and you are now liable for repair costs.

  • The average repair cost of an engine failure in a 3 series is £1,870.
  • A MotorEasy BMW extended warranty for a 3 series - starts at £505.00

Get an extended warranty for ultimate peace of mind. 

 

Can you get a BMW warranty for a used car?

If you bought your used BMW from a BMW main dealer you’ll have received a minimum 12 month warranty. Longer if there was any original manufacturer warranty left on the vehicle.

We can of course provide you with MotorEasy extended BMW warranty cover as long as your car has fewer than 120,000 miles on the clock.

You’ll not only get the peace of mind that comes with our more extensive warranty cove but these additional benefits will make your life easier:

  • A free digital logbook in your MotorEasy account with useful date reminders (such as service and MOT dates)and access to special MotorEasy discounts
