3 yr Service and extending Warranty

Hi All
Just booked the car in for it's 3 year service and enquired on extending the warranty for 2 years or 60,000 miles

539 :shock:

or I can have 1 year for 428

I WILL be taking the 2 years

So Far on Warranty I have had
2 x shocks
1 x Clutch kit
1 x Fly Wheel
1 x 2nd & 3rd Gears
PLUS all the LABOUR for above



Me thinks 539 is well cheap considering above

New one is not an option for me. Only moved house last year and I have a mortgage the size of our national dept :wink:

No pay rise either this year.......... Thanks BT :evil: (internal politics and new job families, no don't go there)

Peter, is the warrenty extension only available to the original purchaser of the car?

Yes
But what is it like claiming. Do you have to pay out then try and claim back?????
With Subaru you just leave it with them job done

I guess giving them a call would be the correct approach.

I dont know if they are pay then claim - sorry, didnt look that far into it.

But still with a savin of that much PA does it matter, just slap it on plastic.

Just went on the first site and on the web it quoted 639 :shock:

Also with the Subaru one you get Subaru Assist (breakdown cover).

You would need to add the cost of Breakdown recovery to the others
