I see where Hyannis Honda is offering the following online for the maintenance plan. What are your thoughts. Based on our driving habits we would need the 4 year 48K mile plan for $800. Not sure anything other than oil changes are due before that so wondering if $800 is worth it? Am I missing something. Please advise.

Plan Code Years*Mileage*Rate
M22224,000$405.00
M23230,000$510.00
M33336,000$575.00
M34345,000$765.00
M44448,000$800.00
M46460,000$915.00

Look at the service schedule in the first post of this thread:
Maintenance Minder - Updated

Find out what your dealer would charge for those services as required over the various time periods and then see if any of those plans make economic sense.
The last time someone asked this question, the general consensus was 'no'.

The car doesn’t have a fixed by mileage maintenance schedule.
I’d keep my cash in my pocket. There’s a car payment or two right there.

Huge profit margin. Don't get sucked in and do the fluid and filter changes yourself.

For me the maintenance plan is worth it, but with that said, It didn't cost me anything for 5 years of maintenance. It was one of the incentives I received for purchasing the vehicle.

If you buy a maintenance plan, you will be shocked how many additional things "break" or need replacing in addition to regular maintenance. There's no way they don't profit off of it. Plus if you were to buy the 60,000 mile plan, there really isn't much required maintenance. 6-10 oil changes depending on interval, 1 or 2 transmission fluid changes and probably 2 rear differential fluid changes (if AWD).

Even if you added all of that up and it came close to the cost of the maintenance plan, I wouldn't buy it out of principle. If the dealer is selling it as an add on, I won't buy it.
