Warranty - Opinions on Extended Warrantys

Hi guys, just had a letter from Renault re extending my warranty for either a year at 290 or two years at 490, would appreciate your views

Life is too short...laugh and enjoy it while you are able to

Sounds good to me asters. I've just took out a 2 year warranty with www.warrantyworks.co.uk and that cost me 314.

Worth having a look mate, but if I could have got a Renault warranty for the same price or less, then I know which one I'd got for (the renault one ).

Hi Asters

Go to the dealership and you might haggle a bit off

If you are intending keeping the car for several years a warranty is a must in my opinion.

Quite a number of alternatives in the market place tho Renaults warranty is very good

The additional 2 year Renault warranty would also help the resale value of the car if you decided to change

Worth every penny in my opinion too,just be careful and read all the small print,make sure what is covered and what isn't.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
