    Default Should i extend my warranty

    I have some sort of warranty with the AA, (i need to check what it covers)

    But my current warranty with Vx expires after April.......... should i renew it ?


    I have a 2.2 Direct

    Here is what it covers

    1 The Engine
    All parts are covered other
    than exhaust systems.
    2 Engine Cooling System
    All parts are covered,
    other than in the case of
    damage or failure due to
    freezing, corrosion, erosion
    and blockage.
    3 Fuel System
    All parts are covered, other
    than in the case of damage
    or failure due to incorrect or
    contaminated fuel, internal
    blockage, adjustments and
    failure to meet current
    emission legislation.
    4 Clutch

    than worn-out friction surfaces.

    Important note
    about consumables:

    such as oils, filters, and
    antifreeze, is only included when
    the relevant consumable is
    replaced as part of a repair that
    is carried out, the cost of which
    forms part of a valid claim and
    where replacement is requested at
    the time authorisation is sought.

    It really depends on how essential you car is for your dependents and work, as well as the state of your finances

    I would suggest you visit a few dealerships and see what they have to offer
    What age and mileage is the car?

    I have already decided I will not be extending mine beyond December 2009, when the car will be 4.5 years old and about 100K miles
    I am due a refund on my warranty policy of about £200
    I will then see what repair bills are like for the next six months, and if they are more than £500 I will then look to swap for a low mileage Insignia in about June 2010 (should be some ex-hire cars by then)

    i'd be inclined to say yes, for peace of mind renew it, but you don't mention the cost.

    After last nights Watchdog as you have a 2.2 Direct you might want to consider it as the average bill was around £600 for the two components which fail in the fuel system on this models engine.

    I would not bother Spenny unless you use it for work as the 2.2 is a reliable engine
