Audi BMW Mercedes-Benz three medium-sized car maintenance contrast

  [car03 car experience]  Many people say, buy 40-50 million in the level of the people do not care about maintenance, ah, it is high with, buy low with people may not think so, you do not believe? Then we took the hottest "BBA" brand of medium-sized car to talk.

Model selection: we took this "beggar version of contrast"

    Among the BBA, the most attention is undoubtedly their mid-size sedans, E-class, 5 Series and A6L, which is divided into two kinds of people, buy low and high with, Frequently 50 million budget, the maintenance of the difference of eight hundred may not be so sensitive. And buy low with may be different, and more pragmatic needs for their vehicle maintenance this thing is more care about, and this issue we have selected three representative models: E200L, 520Li and A6L TFSI, these three Car is the three cars in the best-selling, but also the most traffic models, they will have much in the maintenance gap? I really quite looking forward to.

This comparison model introduction: are the best-selling cars with low models.

Mercedes-Benz E-class: E200L Sports 43.68 million.

BMW 5 Series: 520Li elegant type 43.56 million.

Audi A6L: TFSI technology 41.53 million, although the price of a higher level 30FSI (43-46 million) is more appropriate, but because of the V6 layout, four-cylinder and six-cylinder chat maintenance is not too good, so use 1.8T TFSI models do contrast.

  On the maintenance cycle, need additional explanation: Compared to the previous we have read many of the car brand, BMW in the "BBA" brand maintenance cycle and the replacement project is absolutely regarded as the "most peace of mind", the owner of the fundamental Instead of looking at the recommended cycle in the maintenance manual, the dealer will not tell you what the actual recommended cycle is, because the maintenance manual does not have that content. Specific maintenance intervals will be displayed in the vehicle system maintenance services, once the vehicle needs to be maintained, the driving computer will automatically prompt.

Edit view the dealer shop a few cars, the system's default maintenance interval in the basic ≈ 10000 km or so, so we will use a 10,000 km as a trial trial. Specific interval data will be displayed in the iDrive system maintenance service requirements, it will be based on the actual driver's real-time adjustment, once the need for maintenance, it will take the initiative to be prompted.

    Maintenance policy on the progressive: Audi behind people

    This part is worth and talk to you, the past few years I have been concerned about the BBA brand after-sale progress, but also wrote a lot about after-sales aspects of the content, in general, BMW is still in the forefront, it is the first Aftermarket system has done a very well-established brands, BMW's "Yuet enjoy the package" has been the majority of routine maintenance of transparency, the package, the traditional material + working hours of the model.

    The Mercedes-Benz also in recent years to carry out their own "star emblem maintenance package", the general idea and similar to BMW, the same will be cumbersome maintenance parts prices and the cycle was simplified, and now all models are A, B, A, B, A, B rhythm for maintenance. Not only looks more intuitive, the cost has dropped a lot, but the progress than the year but not small.

    On the other hand, the Audi brand, users have been criticized before the maintenance interval is short, only 5,000 km, and now also upgraded to become a 10,000 km a security. Have to say is a progress, but overall still not out of the old ideas, coupled with some parts of the high cost of work time, so really down, Audi still did not achieve the desired advantage.

Maintenance: Mercedes-Benz progress / BMW to maintain the status quo / Audi is still behind

    In addition to insurance we can not outside, fuel consumption and maintenance costs almost the core cost of keeping a car, and the three in the final results on performance and we expect almost, and did not pull a big gap, Mercedes-Benz by virtue of maintenance policy reform, A lot of progress than in previous years, made the total cost of the first good results. BMW followed, the only difference between the two thousand or so, almost negligible.

    Look at the Audi, the advantage of displacement has long been a lower fuel consumption, a large extent make up for its maintenance disadvantage, But in fact consider its 1.8T models of positioning and displacement, has not cheap.

Summary: BBA has progress, BMW, Mercedes-Benz continued to lead.

    I believe we have seen, BBA these three representative of the medium-sized vehicles in the maintenance and their pre-market, the competition is very intense, especially Mercedes-Benz and BMW, from the policy changes can be seen, Mercedes-Benz Has been completely broke a few years ago, and now really talk about the latter part of maintenance, but also to straighten. Not only the long interval, the number of maintenance-free parts are also increasing, and benefit from the advantages of the package system, the overall cost of catching up BMW, for consumers is not a small positive.

    While the pace of the Audi is clearly a lot slower, although the positive interval will be modified to 10,000 km a security, but due to the old system of restraint, higher working hours and so on, in maintenance and no advantages at all. And Mercedes-Benz and BMW will be part of their accessories, such as the transmission oil to do the maintenance-free degree, Audi in this area need to refuel.

    Car easy to keep a car difficult, a car late reliability, maintenance convenience and maintenance costs are high or low, far more than it is in the performance gap that is more important, especially for these high-end brands with low-speaking models Even more so, I believe that people who choose them are also very pragmatic.

    The other hand, "BBA" brand, the past few years in the field of new car sales can be described as singing all the way, quite high-profile, continue to play the catch you catch me. But in the field of after-sales performance, it seems that is another situation. However, the perfect after-sale is what we should be more concerned about. Well, through this issue, do you have a different brand of their own understanding of the point of view? Welcome to the comments message interaction. See you next issue!
