Ok, I've had a couple of mentions of this here on the forums since I became a member.
To be honest, before I joined here I never knew that there was such a product in existence.
I was wondering if those that have mentioned them in random threads around the forum would be kind enough to post up links to them on this thread?
The reason I ask is because today, on an Irish forum that I am a member of, I asked about such offerings from Irish providers and I basically got a lot of 'what the fook are you looking for one of those for?', and 'buy a bloody decent second-hand car, like a BMW
, and you won't need it'. 'Those are a load of sh!te, you still have to pay for regular servicing!' <<<Well, DUH!
The ignorance is appaling.
In the end I got one link, and I have to wait until tomorrow to find out if they even provide the service I want.
I am curious, for two reasons:
1 - to see if any of the UK providers will provide a warranty to an Irish resident. The car I will buy will likely be a Vel Satis, 3.0 V6 DCi auto. It is looking more and more likely that I will have to purchase this from the UK. I don't know if I could chance a Vel without some form of cover. My mechanic, despite never having worked on one, is falling over himself trying to get me to buy a Superb, Accord, 5, 607, Passat, Mazda 6 or somesuch junk.
Although I will admit, that I would strongly consider an Accord.
2 - I want to see just how backward Ireland is in its insurance and financial services offerings.
Perhaps, aside from all my *****ing, this could be made a sticky/reference for all the known/reputable suppliers of such warranties?
