Re: A4 Quattro Extended Warranty

Presumably, it doesn't cover wear items like brakes and tires, so what
can you expect to go wrong between 50k and 100k miles
exhaust $800 -100 deductible
struts $600 -100 ded
a/c compressor $800 -100 ded
steering rack no -100 ded
sunroof motor no
window motors no
brake bomb $300 -100 ded
Most of the stuff I've had to replace on my history of 5 quattros
has been on the older cars, after 150kmi, after 8 years
Also, you should think of the net present value of the expenses,
since you are spending the money now to get a benefit 4-7 years
from now. At an 8% discount rate, you would have to have $950
reimbursed (after the deductible), in each of years 4,5,6 and 7
to equal the value of $2500 today.
I'd get out of the extended warranty contract if I were you.
