If the car is new to you and the dealer is supplying the policy make sure that they actually pay the premium I got stung by a S**t who included a warranty but did not pay the premium and lo and behold when something went wrong the insurance company informed that the policy was not in place as no premium had been paid, as yet i have not extracted my pound of flesh

I think margins are so tight, and buyers are becoming ever more savvy that manufacturers are making it harder and harder for people to make successful warranty claims. They will defer a claim at every turn where possible. This means that after market warrantors will find it hard to give a valid policy for a reasonable price that peeps could afford. Different where a policy is sold with the vehicle, where often it is included in the finance, but is usually a dealer or franchise option, and quite expensive

I had two with my last audi - one an official Audi warranty and one from Warranty Direct. The dynamic ride control failed on the car under Audi warranty period - they replaced all four corners with identical parts - happy enough. Into period with Warranty Direct and lo and behold DRC goes tits again - they replace DRC with much improved parts without quibble. For 12 months cover was 800 quid IIRC, about a 1/2 the cost of replacing the above issue. Their terms are on the website I think, showing what's covered and what's not..easy enough to get a quote, just put in a made up telephone number or else they'll be ringing you for weeks...

Thanks. I've had a look around and Warranty Direct seem to be the only company that gets more good comments than bad!

Well, I went for the Tesco (Car Care Plan) warranty in the end. Their "Finest" policy is much more comprehensive than the Warranty Direct offering, and 100 cheaper.

Knowing Fiat's legendary build quality I'll probably find out exactly how good this warranty is before too long.

Took an extra warranty out on my Navara D40 in september

Last week the clutch started to slip 84000 miles (but it had a new uprated clutch and flywheel at 27000 under warranty for known fault)

Warranty people turned up today and said, I had to pay for the clutch parts they would sort the rest

Landrover warranty

I took out extended warranty with Landrover BEFORE the end of the 3 year warranty at 85 a month with Roadside assistance and hire car provision . Just about to have a new auto g/box fitted at 80000 miles no quibble and a loan car included . The car has been towing 3 ton trailers continually since new!Engine is perfect so I hope to get another 80k out of the new box now.
