Re: Renault Warranty
Ok, I have contacted 3 third party warranty providers and heres how it goes...
AA: They are the cheapest (£250 for a year cover). But, can only claim max £3000 at any 1 time: i.e. if the gearbox packed up or the injectors needed changing and the car needs 4 new ones I have to cough up the rest myself.
Warranty direct: They are £50 cheaper than Renault for a year or 60000 miles (they do ask how many miles in year you do) but there is an access that i have to pay if I were to choose the dealer to undertake the work. I cannot take 2 years warranty from them in 1 go . They warranty the car for 1 year and you can renew it the following year. I suspect that they would raise the price depending on how much I claim in the first year.
Warranty wise: They have quoted me £819 for 2 years or 100000 miles their cover is the same as warranty direct but no access charge, it is up to me to decide which garage should carry out the work. The max amount I claim at any 1 time is total value of the car at the time of claim as described in Parkers car guide. I asked them to email me the terms and condition of the warranty. I received email with quotation attachment that has the following clause. I assume that is their terms and condition or they do not want me to see until I take the warranty with them
