Just got my new 2002 NB Sport, was looking at the extended warranty from 1sourceautowarranty for 10years/100,000 miles 0 deductible for $884. I know it has a 4 year/50,000 bumper to bumper & 5 year /60,000 on powertrain, anyone think it would be worth it on my NB Sport for the extended. Bought it for my other car a 2001 Corvette for $1249 but I figure my Sport will have less problems, has a beeter factory warranty & hopefully less expensive then the Vette for repairs. Anyone else got an extended warranty on their Beetle.

Extended warranty plans are a big source of revenue for the dealer. I never go for them. They are a ripoff. No offense http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Re: Extended Warranty (waynewright)

Agree, I wouldn't consider a third-party warranty for three reasons: first, you might not have any covered failures of warranty items; second, it may be hard to force the company to payout on a failure; and last, the risk of the company being gone when you need them down the road. Rather than pay the warranty company and dealer a big profit, just invest your $884 in a 4-yr CD now. That way, if you don't need it to cover a repair when your factory warranty runs out, you'll have $1000 to keep for yourself.

Re: Extended Warranty (steve1173)

A friend of mine has a 3rd party extended warranty for his '96 M3. Every time something has failed, they've looped-holed him on contract, and only given him a fraction of the actual repair cost.
For example, he had a coolant hose burst, ~$800 to repair because of labor and additional repercussions -- they only reimbursed him $100 because it was a part that wasn't covered under his contract. This has happened quite a few times. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
