Some times it is better to wait to buy an extended warranty. You can usually purchase an extended warranty(not always through the Manufacturer) up to the time your original warranty expires. No use buying an extended warranty until you sure you are really going to use it.Was hoping to find an answer to this exact question. Did you have any luck getting answers TOadvocate?
I just placed an order on a new F-Pace today! Heading into the purchase I was pretty sure I didn't want the extended warranty. Then after more thought... I'm not so sure. I plan to keep the vehicle for 10 years. I'd imagine repairs on this car can add up, but the price of the extended warranty was a lot higher than I thought it would be.
The dealer I purchased from uses "Autoxtra" for their extended warranties. I can't even find a website on these guys. Anybody heard of them or had any experience with extended warranties in Canada?
Apparently , YOU are *VERY TIGHT* with your mileage !!! Because YOU won't even join us for the *MEET & GREET* in April !!! We already have *5* Jersey Boyz signed up , you could be #6 !!!as I put fewer miles on these days.
Is that *OUTRAGEOUS* FEE for *8-years* after the original *5-year* warranty , or are you really only getting *3* extra years for that money ??? If so , then that is just silly !!! Cause the first *5* years , is a FREEBIE from Jag !!!Every response is appreciated. I do put a lot of miles on the vehicle as well.
There are 4 packages. The most expensive is a 8 year/ 290,000 km warranty. It costs $9,000! ($6,700 US). That's pretty insane. I'm thinking I'm going to roll the dice for now and get a better idea once I'm in the final year of my warranty.
You probably already know this (and are considering an extended warranty anyway) but if you can afford a warranty you can probably afford to take the risk yourself and (on average) save a boatload of money:The most expensive is a 8 year/ 290,000 km warranty. It costs $9,000! ($6,700 US).
And it doesn't hurt to investigate how a 'factory warranty' is being provided. I learned this lesson the hard way many years ago with VW. I'd purchased a new Jetta (aka The Evil Jetta) and at the time VW was including a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty that was purported to be a VW one.I wouldn't consider a third party warranty. Too many horror stories about coverage. And companies going out of business and you're left with nothing. I'm sure many had good experiences, but as a general rule if you're going to get one, I would only buy a manufacturer's warranty.
