There has been a small debate taking place in the Wichita Eagle Automobile Ads about the “cost” of routine maintenance between a certain Wichita BMW dealership and Scholfield Auto Plaza (the number one Luxury Automotive Retailer in Wichita!). In fact, said BMW Dealership ran a spot in last weekend’s Eagle that showed the cost of three years maintenance on certain BMW vehicles versus some of our Brands (Lexus, Acura, Mercedes-Benz—again, the Number 1, 2, and 3 selling Luxury Brands in Wichita).
We did a little fact checking on Edmunds.com (their source) and found out that model after model after model the truth about “free” maintenance is that it is not free. In fact, the “True Cost to Own”, Edmunds.com’s five year estimator, shows a VERY different picture.
Here are some Lexus examples (all 2009 models)—
BMW 3 Series versus Lexus IS and ES
We knew that our vehicles were better, and now we know the numbers are, too.
One thing Joe doesn’t tell you is that they have NOTHING like the one and only Scholfield Luxury Experience!
This information is fantastic to know. It’s amazing how misleading other car dealers can be. Thank you for letting us know the truth!
