My warranty runs out next month. I've got some quotes for new warranty. VW quoted £610 for year. Others quoted £450 upwards. Both these depend on me getting car serviced at VAT registered garage. This works out at £700 plus for one years warranty/next service. Is it worth it? I've always serviced own cars in past once they were over 3 years old. If I do it myself, I know it's getting done right. Just grudge paying someone hundreds to change oil! I' m not bothered about stamp in book. After 20+ cars, I've never been asked about service history.

Hi mate. I renewed my vw warranty with another vw warrenty for £980. This is there top level of cover that includes unlimited milage and also unlimited cost for parts and labour as we do a few miles. Find out what your vw quote includes. I know what your saying about paying for the services as this just seems like the biggest rip off going. My last engine oil and haldex service at vw was £450, how do they work that one out???! I think its worth it just for peace of mind......

Its worth pointing out that VW will not do an all component warranty on the R32 if the car is over 4 years old, the cover is reduced to named components

Well I have VW warranty and it finishes in August.

I have had the ECU 6463 update done (But had to go to another VW garage to get it done) , Thanks to VC for the advice for this.

Just have a rattle in the car and also the (Two) doors need adjusting as they need a slight slam to close them (Will this be covered)????

What can I get done under warranty,
(ie) cough cough, Something (To get my money's worth),lol.

In the past I have used Warranty Direct (On other cars), They have been very good indeed.

Caxton, they will charge you to adjust your door cards, this will probably cost you 1/2 an hours labour.........I think it depends on how much you use your r but with so much on that list that isnt covered it hardy seems worth buying the warranty in the first place??! I think i have the same as vc.

I will try and see what VW garage will say or try another VW garage (And hope to get it done as I hate slamming the door).:frustrated:

I decided yesterday to renew warranty with current company. Went out just now in car and 'Service Now' came up on display. Had got quotes for 3rd service, local Vw wanted £240. Specialist £211.

i really cant recommend Warranty Direct enough. Ive recently renewed with them at just over 400 pounds and it even covers wear and tear items like bushes. It covers far more than the VW warranty, believe me i work for them and see cases all the time not been covered.

When my cooling fans finally failed at 45k i called them gave them repair code and they authorised straight away, cheque immediately in post. Superb

Sorry for late reply, they sent cheque straight to dealer, admittedly i work for them so a little different but most dealers providing they can get faxed confirmation they will be paid will come to an agreement.

Really good company claims process dead easy.

I brought my 53 plate MK4 R32 in September last year and got VW warranty with the car.

Just want to know what, if anything, can be replaced during the warranty period,

i.e. coil covers

suspension springs etc etc.

(That's if I can find a good VW garage to do anything while it's still covered with VW warranty).
