Clarification: I would assume this is based off of dealer rate of maintenance vs. independent shops/self-service, correct?

The price of the service plans were based on the quotes I got from one of the Arizona or New Jersey dealers who sell these plans (I've listed these prices in the other thread).
As you can see the Premium maintenance plan kicks in the savings if you keep the car for a long time and plan to keep it in very good shape.
For others, the Elite maintenance plan would suffice. I'm hoping I won't go broke within the next few years and won't have to drive this car for 20 years. So I plan to hold on to the JX only for 5 years. And I went with the Elite for myself.
I believe the plan is refundable for the unused period.
I've put out the numbers. Hopefully this reduces the number of questions rather than have more
