    Default Your WARRANTY ends now what? dealer says 15k gets you a full comprehen 2yr warranty

    Hi,

    So my warranty comes to an end soon on my 2015 car. Dealer says 15k for a 2 year 100 000 km comprehensive warranty incl brakes etc .

    Just not tyres and wipers.

    Do I , don't I or is there a route I must consider.



    PS: this is the first new car I have had so new to this option.

    What car is it?

    If trees could scream would we be so cavalier about cutting them down. What if they screamed all the time for no reason?

    Don't let the words comprehensive throw you off, get a copy of the warranty, read through it and make an informed decision.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    Ya I am nervous about this as the car is well 'won' the premium hothatch award so I don't wanna pay premium prices if a gearbox goes or a turbo

    Check limits on cover before buying it as they sometimes will only cover till a certain amount.

    VW doesn't offer a "Direct" extended warranty as far as I understand unlike Toyota and others.

    Exactly why I ask. The the third party warranties are notoriously stingy on the big claims.

    It sounds like an extension of your maintenance plan. If it is as you say, everything except tyres and wiper blades and there aren't any limits, it's good value and you should get it.

    I'd get that in writing, because them offering that as an option is news to me...
