Extended Warranty- Question

Post by valleyman » Thu, 15 Apr 2010 11:01 am

My car is going to run out of the initial 3 year warranty period soon. The agent has sent me an extended warranty brochure and I am wondering if buying the warranty for an additional year makes sense or not...

My car is a "made in Japan" model and I have clocked around 45K.. no problems so far...

Any suggestions ? :???:

Buying the extended warranty then ties you in to having car serviced at main dealer so another extra cost. It just a way that the Agent's ensure you have to go to main dealer. Much cheaper to get servicing done outside.

That is very true!

Not only that though! Honouring the extended warranty in Singapore is really when you have to fight for your rights! Becuase customer service is very bad here!

I have a case going on now, over extended warranty, but not on a vehicle on furniture! I have CASE involved and the 35$ membership fee is well worth the effort.

I have just refused the offer they gave me, because of lies, bad service, and the offer was all in their favour not mine.

The unqualified surveyor that visited my home and tried to say it was my fault such an idiot who thought he could bullshit me into believing him, though i have more experience in the product than he does.

So it will be a court case, if the problem isn't fixed.
