Warrantywise Car warranty

Hi all,

firstly, i hope i have posted this in the right section....

Has anyone had any dealing with warrantywise?

i've been looking to take out some warranty on my A5 cab 2012 FL CVT. I contacted Audi but they seem very expensive compared to policies i have taken out with main dealers on previous cars (lexus, merc).

I got a call from warrantywise, they said they will cover my car comprehensively quoting many different items covered inc. sat nav, entertainment system, roof mechanism etc....so i asked them what was not covered. They said bodywork, glass, tyres, exhaust and brake pads & disc...frictional items.

They also covered labour charges upto £150 p/h and repairs can be carried out at main dealer with max single claim of £15k. They also won't charge me for betterment.

They offered me the policy for 2 years for £825 if i take it out today and i can pay interest free over 6 months.

Really appreciate people's thought and any questions i should be asking warrantywise and your experieances with warrantywise.

Hi mate no experience with them but did use warranty direct and they were excellent. Try to get main dealer policy but even with that the warranty company usually sends an engineer to inspect the part before any work is done which is a ball ache tbh. They will authorise the work but that's an extra day or two without your car. But apart from that it's decent.

I had Warrantywise when I got my A5 from BMW dealership and they were terrible! The EGR cooler went within the first 2 weeks and it cost £1300 to fix! Warrantywise "offered" me £720 and said to get the rest from the dealer. I told the dealer to sort it out or I wanted my money back and even they couldn't get them to up their offer! Dealer paid the difference in the end but I wouldn't recommend Warrantywise to my my worst enemy! Well maybe the ones I really don't like!

Had 3 years with Warranty Direct and they seemed pretty decent. However, I told them their policy booklet had misleading wording so they agreed to up me to extra cover at same cost. Basically there's 3 levels of cover and only when you get to the third level do they start covering ECU or emissions... which for me is the expensive stuff that wants sorting properly. Thankfully I only claimed a couple of minor things... and they were really pretty painless to deal with. In the long run I should have just put the money aside and taken the hit as it would have been much cheaper.
