- Car Warranties – Warranty Direct etc..
A waste of money?
My car’s about to come to the end of it’s warranty period. It was a Subaru approved used Forester, and we haggled 2 years warranty for it. So I’m thinking of taking out one of those extended warranties you pay for.
Subaru have offered one which gives me pretty much carries on with what I have already, and the ones on offer from Warranty Direct and Warranty wise are a bit more pricey.
Any thoughts from the hive mind? Good Idea or a money extraction scam via my paranoia about cars going kaput…?Posted 5 years agonwilkoMember
non manufacturers free warranties are not worth the money you will spend, far too many exclusions..Posted 5 years ago
put £50 per month into a savings account / under the mattress @ hope nothing goes wrong, if you get a few years with nothing major you are a long way towards the cost of replacing your car with a newer one..
Anything that was likely to fail due to manufacturing defect / design (ie the unexpected things that are covered by a warranty) would have failed within a couple of years, anything that fails after that time will be classed as “wear & tear / end of servicable life” and not covered.2unfit2rideSubscriber
If any then the manufacturers warranty if it is indeed a manufacturers warranty & not a third party offering. Best look at the small print very carefully & ask a few garages if they will deal with that warranty company.Posted 5 years ago
I often have to try & make claims & 9 out of ten times they don’t pay out. Best one was for a wheel bearing that failed after 9k miles that the warranty company said was W&T, I said no its not & they asked me to prove it wasn’t if I wanted to pursue the claim, yeah right oh.
