    Default Warranties - any good?

    Has anybody taken out a warranty on their car and it's proved to be cost effective? Given the known issues with the cdti could it be beneficial do you think?

    Depends on how much you use the car and your opinion of risk

    Look at AA breakdown with repair cover
    I bought mine in 2009 at £200, made 3 claims in 2010 costing me £75 in excess, which paid out for one shock absorber, one spring, and wiper mechanism, in effect paying for itself

    When new (to me at 18 months old) I bought the Network Q Complete Protection Plan
    This alone paid for the servicing, everything thereafter was "free"
