8,000 miles on my car, 2005 330i

I was driving from AZ to TX and during the trip my winshield washer fluid light came on and before I got to TX my wiper blades started to smear instead of clear my winshield.

When I arrived in TX I took my car to the local dealer to get the blades replaced and washer fluid added.

After they changed the blades and added fluid I got stuck with a bill for $24.00, arent those items covered?

Yes, both of those should be covered by the maintenance program. Where in Texas as this, and which dealership?

:yikes: I would've raised hell! It explicitly states in the maintenance manual that wiper blades are covered under full maintenance. Windshield fluid is not.

They may have done wiper blades under maintenance program and charged you for the wiper fluid. $24 may seem like a lot, but my dealer charges $45 just for wiper blades (parts & labor). Did you get a detailed receipt ?
