Extended Warranty???

I am debating whether to purchase the extended warranty for mechanical issues as well as whether to purchase the tire warranty. Has anybody else decided to purchase the extended warranty?

I bought the extended warranty at the time of purchase (8 years/100K), having NEVER bought one before in my car-owning history. Why this time?

1) it was offered at something like 66% off ($2k vs $6K)
2) it's a first-model-year vehicle
3) my previous car (a Volvo) started to have transmission issues around 75K miles and I figured, well, $2K is less than a new transmission

Did I just throw $2K out the window? Ask me in 7 years and 10 months. :-) I keep my cars for 10+ years, so it seemed worth it in my case. Probably not so for those who lease or trade in frequently.

When I get a new car, I swing by America's Tire and they'll sell you a warranty for the tires, whether they were purchased there or not. Had an X5 and it paid for itself many times over.

How long do you intend on keeping the vehicle? How many miles do you think you will put on the car?

I didn't buy it for mine because the price was outrageous and I don't intend on putting a lot of miles on it before the 5 years are up.

This is always an interesting topic. If you think you need an extra warranty, then why would you buy a car you have no faith in??? LOl.

But then, when you look at the cost to replace just about ANYTHING on a vehicle, it seems like good insurance. If you keep the car for a while, you'll find you pay higher premiums to insure other stuff you have, that isn't worth as much or is as important to day to day life.

I did this with a first year Buick Enclave and it paid for itself at least three times over (I stopped keeping track at that point).

It's insurance for re-sale too. If the first year model F Pace develops a bad reputation for reliability, you'll sell yours much easier if it has a transferable warranty (my Buick did, but don't know about Jag). You have to read the fine print too. There is an admin charge every time you use it ($100 for me), there is a limit to how many times a part can be replaced, etc, etc.

But a dealer is not limited by Jag on extras like this so haggle freakin hard and see what you can get it for (I intend to).

I was researching the issue of the F-Pace extended warranty and was curious if anyone took out the tire protection warranty? Do you think it is a good idea based on the cost vs the cost of the 22 inch rims? I think the cost is fairly close to the cost of replacing 1 wheel.

If the roads you drive on are not great and you are not as careful as you should be it might be worth it. Keep in mind that if you get some curb rash on your wheels they are not going to replace them just repair them. If it is a good shop that does the repair you will never know they were fixed.

If it is any help I gave one of my rear rims a touch of curb rash - about 6 inches of bare aluminum - on day 2. For about $150 dealer had their rim specialist contractor fix it and impossible to tell it ever happend. I did not opt for tire/rim protection and view the $150 as cheap lesson in being more careful than I was in my 4Runner. That said, before winter hit, I found myself very reluctant to consider travel on anything approaching 4WD roads due to rims, and lack of skid plates.

Same with me, I was coming around a tight corner a bit to fast, my right rear wheel got some curb rash. Good to know the dealer can fix it, Ill ask my dealer to take a look when its in next week.

Hi All, thanks for the feedback. I am now going to forgo the tire warranty as it sounds ill advised. Any opinions on the cost vs benefit to extending the engine warranty out to 100K? The engine repairs between 60k and 100k could be costly, but the extended warranty is not exactly inexpensive at over 3k...any thoughts?
