    Default Quick Heads Up On Extended Warranty Clause

    Just for info - in looking around at various warranty providers and speaking to them to confirm, they all required your car to be kept up to date with service history at a VAT registered garage. This means that you can't do it yourself and keep the reciepts as proof. Unless the books stamped and a garage reciept can be shown then the companies won't authorise a warranty repair.

    Just thought I'd share this as I was looking to take out an extended warranty but always service the car myself.

    Sorry mate but this is old news fundemental requirement if you are insuring (warranty is an insurance) then qualified maintainers are the minimum for independant evidential purposes to show that the car is being maintained to the manufacturers requirements

    Using a VAT registered garage is a condition of warranty, so even if you are qualified it will not count - unless you work for a VAT reg. garage and you get the paperwork too.
