Extended Factory Warranty

Recommended Posts

Has anyone purchased one, or obtained a quote ?

I was quoted a price for a 3yr/100k warranty, and almost burst out laughing when I heard the amount. I was expecting a couple of hundred dollars, not thousands. An awful lot to pay for a cup of coffee and a car to use for a few hours while your car is being serviced.

I also do not like several terms and conditions in the PDS - basically, you need to obtain approval to repair/replace any warranty item during the term, and the warranty is not transferrable unless you sell your car prviately and you obtain their approval beforehand.

No thanks.

When I picked up my RX 350 in August last year (2012), I had the balance of the 4 year warranty, plus a further 3 year extended warranty tied to the dealership. This was a special they were doing at the time; and furthermore, I have yet to do my first service yet and it also comes with up to 60,000 KM FREE servicing.

I had to at one point sign an insurance form when they had to reprogram a second key to the vehicle at their own cost and expense as they were the ones' that lost the second key in the first place.

Don't get one from National Warranty , I took out a 3 year extended Warranty from them on a 1999 ES 300 , about 2 years into the Warranty I broke down , it turned out to be a fuel pump problem and had to get a new fuel pump , which was covered under my Warranty , but National refused to cough up for it , not a red cent , you can only talk to them on the phone at the call centre in Traralgon Victoria , you cannot physically speak to an employee face to face , although I had my car serviced on time every time and all of the paperwork for the claim for the pump they refused my claim , I didn't get my paper work back , I found out later after talking to a few people , I'm not the first that this has happened to , so beware of this company , they are Australia wide and you might be covered by them without realising it . Oh the Warranty was over $800 and the new fuel pump was $1200
