Shall I keep the maintenance package?

I purchased the 4 year maintenance package when the model x was bought on 2016, and two annual maintenance has been done since. Now it's approaching the third one. I'm wondering I should just get the money back or use the remaining two. I might like to keep the car for a while and even consider getting extended warranty. Thanks for your suggestion.

Current recommended third-year service includes:

1) HEPA every 3 years. This is an extra charge in addition to what you pre-paid for 4 years.
2) Tire rotation (The X cannot do cross rotation, only side to side due to front/rear size difference)

That doesn't sound much. If you don't know how to check your tire treads or alignment, maybe you should keep the maintenance package.

If you are do-it-yourself type, I would ask for a refund.

In my experience, there are often items found in need of replacement during the Annual Service or done proactively. Without the car having a full "once over" each year, they might not be noticed. This would be especially important if your warranty were close to expiring. If I didn't keep the service package I would probably put those funds towards the Extended Warranty.

Just my opinion.
