Re: To warranty or not to warranty?
£2500 wouldn't look near the cost of replacing the engine. Double that figure and you may be nearer the true cost. Last figure I heard of was £6000 and rising in one scenario.
Thanks Noel, so if you don't have a warranty on a ~£5k Espace, a major repair is a write-off. Scrap value.
Again then it comes down to if you have a youngish one (50k miles on a 3l diesel = young, to this Volvo owner anyway). We are only doing 5k a year (it's basically a holiday car), so over 6 years / 30k miles we could buy another Espace outright with the price of a warranty.
Or am I missing something here?
