NorCal MINIs member Kristoffer Köster asks:
So the 4yr 48k mi warranty is coming up on our car. We can extend it for I think around $1200-1500 or maybe less, I forgot the price quote.
Kathleen and I don't drive it much so we only have 17-18k mi on the car. Do you guys think its worth it to get the 1yr extended manuf warranty? I've had a few problems with the car, the engine mount fluid leaked, and had an oil leak when something broke in the engine. Otherwise its been in for it regular maintenance. Bought new tires after the run flats failed....
Kathleen and I are currently in the process of buying our first house. So it seems like 1k is a great deal not having to worry about the car for another year, but I wanted to get your opinion first.
Cheers, hope you are all well. See you in Yosemite soon! (Sorry its our first outing this year)
We here at NorCal MINIs have differing views on the Extended Warranty depending on cost, mileage, mechanical aptitude and level of paranoia.
