    Dont think its worth it on the 1.8 mate as its a very reliable engine unlike some of the others with expensive faults

    my parents have a AA warranty thing. its parts and labour. cost £69 on top of your membership and gives you 5x £500 billswith a £25 excess. BUT you have to be dropped off at the garage by the AA? pain but kinda worth it. included head gaskets cam belts etc but only upto the £500 you have to pay the rest?

    depends on the cost and level of cover given

    its a nice trump card to pull out in the event of any problems

    but you need to assess the costs involved

    i.e. main dealer service required or vat registered garage
    problems had with car in the past
    any known issues with build spec (springs for example)


    weigh up the pros and cons

    write yourself a list for and against - biggest side of the list wins

    I've just bought a warranty direct extra cover with emissions and airbag extras for £300 and 4 months to pay it interest free. Seems like a lot compared to the AA offering and excess is £50 but the claim limit is the value of the car and it seems to be pretty comprehensive. Driving a CDTI 150 out of warranty I reckon an inlet manifold or DMF could just about cripple me otherwise. And best of all is the peace of mind, I can enjoy the car instead of convincing myself that something is possibly going wrong - neurotic bag of nerves I am!
