bmw x3 or benz ml350
I currently own a 2001 BMW 540 which I am going to sell. I've narrowed my choices down to the above two. I am torn because the BMW Warranty is:
1.The BMW Maintenance Program for four years or 50,000 miles; one of the most comprehensive maintenance programs in its class.
2.Unlimited-Mileage Roadside Assistance for four years.
3.A New Vehicle Limited Warranty for four years or 50,000 miles
In the first 4 years of owning my BMW, I didn't put a dime into it even though it went in for maintenance. Everything replaced at that time was covered.
I don't think Benz has a maintenance program, do they? Am I just thinking the warranty to death, should it even be a deciding factor?
I don't know anyone who owns a Benz. So if there is anyone on this forum who can give me their thoughts or advise. How much is the Benz for maintenance? Does it need maintenance every year. I don't know the workings of a Benz, but I sure do like the ML350.
I apologize for asking so many questions. I have been thinking about this for a couple of months and still haven't made up my mind. Any help in making my decision will be greatly appreciated.
