Do any new cars provide totally free maintenance?

I want to pay as little as possible on car maintenance, but I also want to purchase a new car to reduce the amount of maintenance even further. Is there any way to get free maintenance on new cars?

“If you want to lessen the cost of caring for your vehicle, you have several new cars that will provide some level of free maintenance or service. This list includes:
  • Alfa Romeo: one free service visit within first year
  • BMW and Mini: three years of regularly scheduled maintenance
  • GM brands: one free service visit within first year
  • Hyundai: three years of regularly scheduled maintenance
  • Toyota: two years of regularly scheduled maintenance
However, the top brand for free maintenance is Jaguar, which offers routine maintenance free of charge for five years or 60,000 miles. Other brands may also offer decent amounts of free service, so long as you’re the only owner. After that, you’re probably going to have to pay out of pocket or purchase a used car warranty.
As you budget for car ownership, don’t forget to plan for car insurance. Insurance can be a costly aspect of owning a vehicle, but it doesn’t have to be.
While insurance might not be considered maintenance, it does help payout in the event of an accident, saving you money when you need to repair your car. If you want help shopping for the best coverage at the lowest price, try using the Jerry app. Jerry compares rates from the top providers and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes. And the best part–it’s free to shop for insurance with Jerry.”
