Hello again all,

I have done a search of the forums and Google searches, but have not found any information in regard to length of term and costs for extended warranties offered by BMW on the IX50.

I believe the standard warranty is 4 year, 50,000 miles, but since I have a habit of keeping my vehicles for at least 7 years and 100,000 miles (sometimes more) and given that this will be a vehicle I probably cannot wrench on myself especially on the power train and compute systems, it seems prudent (at least to me) to get an extended warranty when I take delivery of my IX50 in July. This being my first BMW, I understand you can possible (?) extended the warranty during the first 4 years and 50,000 miles, please correct me here if I am mistaken.

The question being, is it best to purchase the extended warranty up front, or wait a couple of years and see how the vehicle performs from reliability standpoint? That way if the car is simply a dud (I have had a couple of those in my life) I don’t waste the funds with purchasing a warranty up front that I might not use.

Thanks in advance for your wisdom and guidance.

Hi, I just wanted to throw in that there are three (at least but you’ll need to see a window sticker at a dealer) warranties on the iX: the limited standard 4yr/50k miles, a power train warranty 4yrs/50k, and an 8 yr/100k warranty on the EV components and battery. This kind of warranty on EV parts was common across the brands and shopping around, a lot of the salespeople were like “why buy an extended when there’s an 8 year on the battery and EV parts.” Never thought I’d hear a salesperson oppose the extended. Now I don’t know what “EV components” cover past the battery and maybe the wires and other boxes that connect it to the motors, but I haven’t been able to find details on that.
All this to say that on the iX it may not make the most sense to get an extended.

Have you looked at the extended warranty provided by your insurance carrier? On my I3 and Jeep Wrangler I have 10 year 100k warranties with 250 deductibles for about $22 a month for both cars. The manufacturer warranty always is applied first if applicable. Had to use it on the Jeep and it was painless having the dealer process the claim.
