Aftermarket Warranty for VS - What do you reckon?
Happy New Year all,
As some will know, I've got a Vel Satis and it's warranty with WarrantyWise is soon going to expire. To be honest I've always been reluctant about the WarrantyWise policy (which the small indie dealer I bought the car from set up for me) as almost everything seems to be wriggled out of quoting "wear and tear" as their reason, plus the policy I was given doesn't cover sat nav, CD player etc and it only covers labour rates up to £35/hour I think.
Just had a call from WarrantyDirect offering me a warranty labelled Extra Care at £400 which includes:
- Full Wear & Tear
- Unlimited labour rates (so I can take to main dealer)
- Full ICE cover for CD changer, sat nav etc
- Air Bag & Emissions Cover
- MoT Failure, Service Items Flagged-Up etc
- And "Everythiing Else" according to their literature
Sounds too good to be true, as other websites quoted me about £800 for such full cover (main dealer rates, CD, sat nav, wear and tear, etc).
The only catch may be that it covers me up to 60,000 miles and I'm on 54,200 at the moment. I only drive 6,000 or less per year, but who knows, maybe this year I'll do a touch more...
What do you all reckon?
