Many people who are interested in leasing a vehicle often wonder whether they will need to pay for oil changes if they actually end up leasing. For the most part, most auto warranties provided by car manufacturers do not cover oil changes. An oil change is generally considered part of a car’s standard maintenance, which means that you will have to foot the bill. However, some auto companies such as BMW offer very generous maintenance packages that provide free oil changing services as well. What you should do prior to signing a car lease contract is to ask the dealer specifically about the coverage provided by the manufacturer’s warranty. You should also ask your dealer if wear and tear items, such as brake pads or air filters, are covered under the warranty.
