Audi covers the 2012 A8 with a four-year/50,000-mile limited warranty, and provides roadside assistance during that time. Additionally, Audi provides the first scheduled maintenance at 12 months or 5,000 miles free of charge. While many automakers don’t include any routine maintenance with the purchase of a new car, those who enjoy this perk might want to check out the BMW 7-Series. BMW includes free scheduled maintenance while the 7-Series is under warranty.
