Re: A4 Quattro Extended Warranty
Item Subject: cc:Mail Text
A vote *for* the warranty. I have one on my 1995 A6Q.
I'm usually skeptical of these. They exist obviously to make the supplier
money, not as a charity to me.
However, cash flow insurance was my main concern (and ease of maintenance.)
You could obviously escrow your own money.
The $1500 3-year extended warranty (4 to 7, as explained in original post)
Was added to my original purchase and factored into the payment. What I
get from this *very small* increment in monthly payment over the 5 year
Credit Union note is:
1) No cash flow surprises during the critical one year where I am paying
a hefty monthly sum and the car is out of warranty.
2) 2-years of no cash flow surprises. Either I can confidently roll
my other '85 5KS into a lower maintenance vehicle or have
2 years breathing room to prepare.
While I perceive my '95 A6Q is much more reliable as my older Audis, the
Extended warranty wasn't purchased to "get it back" in value, but to
provide insurance/piece-of-mind. Ask: What's YOUR REASON for wanting the
'79 5K (deceased)
