All Inclusive Maintenance Plan

So, those 10-year, 10,000 mile warranties that all the car manufacturers are offering now don't include everything. For example, my clutch/transmission blew up, but the warranty didn't cover it since it's a manual transmission. I guess some of the bumper-to-bumper warranties that are out there would cover this. But what they don't cover is routine maintenance, like oil changes, tire rotations, etc. What would it be worth to you to receive an all-inclusive maintenance plan with your car? Keep in mind that the dealership is probably going to get back some of this money, because they get to handle the preventive care on the vehicle, hopefully avoiding major malfunctions in the long run that they'd have to take the bill for.
