I am finalizing my deal for a new Cayenne.  The dealer is trying to sell me maintenance plan for 60 months for $6k that includes scheduled maintenance.  And another plan for brake related work for 48 months for about $2800.  When I mentioned that I can do most regular maintenance stuff including brakes myself, the lady said that you cannot work on new cars anymore because of so many electronics even in the brake pads and rotors.  I find it hard to believe, but better to be safe than sorry.

 

Has anyone done any brake related work on MY20,21?  If so, is it really difficult and or expensive?

 

Do these maintenance plans worth it?

 

Thanks

As a rule, these maintenance plans are designed to turn a healthy profit for the firm offering them, much like extended warranty programs.  While newer cars do have a lot of electronics in them, some unnecessary, there are still a lot of things a "shade tree" mechanic can do by themselves.
