BMW Extended Auto Warranty

Sep 11, 2019
Michael Robinson

BMW is considered to be some of the best vehicles on the road today. They are the “Ultimate Driving Machine,” offering a unique combination of performance and style that puts them at the top of most buying guides. Since the company’s founding in 1916, these German-manufactured vehicles have offered luxury, performance in all types of driving conditions, and the highest levels of engineering excellence. That level of performance requires regular maintenance and once your BMW Ultimate Care manufacturer’s warranty expires, you don’t want to be stuck with expensive repair bills. Protect your investment with Circle Auto Protect.

Why do you need an Extended Auto Warranty on your BMW?
BMW owners rely on their vehicles in extreme weather conditions. Their ability to get you home safely in heavy rain and snow, and keep you cool in extreme heat is why you purchased one in the first place.
