    Default warranties???

    after experiencing problem after problem with my vectra i am considering an aa warranty or similar.

    i was always led to believe warranties are not worth the paper they are written on and only cover items that very seldam go wrong.

    anyway i was wondering what you guys think? are my thoughts incorrect?...

    do warranty companies try every excuse in the book not to pay out??

    whats the best company and policy??

    thanks

    I'd like to know this too as I have a 2.2 Direct that's just waiting to go wrong, and if I could insure myself against the inevitable I'd be very happy... <watches thread closely>

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 8v

    Year : 55

    Mileage : 92,000

    Default

    I was quite tempted to go for warrenty direct when I bought my car but was informed that I needed full service history and car to be less than 70k miles. Also that any wear and tear items would not be covered until after three months of the policy starting (or something to that effect)
    Already replaced:-
    Alternator,
    Drilled/Grooved Discs & Pads, Eibach Springs, EGR Valve, 50W HID's 6000k, K&N Panel Filter, LED footwell & boot lights

    Correct on the 3 month thing I think but as your car get on a bit then you pay some % to the bill , so I think I have to pay 5% now as my car is approaching 70k

    so does the car have to be serviced by vauxhall?? or just a garage?

    i tend to service the car myself as im an aircraft mechanic. but im sure this wont be good enough??

    my car is also a 2003 with 106000 miles on the clock.


    if i opt for a warranty and choose warranty direct, give u a pm so u get ur free vouchers
