Having run my own repair shop for 13 years, I always told the customer they were responisible for the repair bill. When the car left the bill had to be paid, no exceptions, unless I knew them and they made arrangements in advance.
Personally I think extended warrantees are a crock. They take your money and when it comes time to pay it out they find a way to weasel their way out of the payout. They have attorneys write the contract so they can reject your claim for hundreds of reasons.
Will the warantee company even be there when you make the claim?
At the very least I would read their contract microscopically, and highlight any portion you do not understand perfectly, and require a written response to your concerns.
Was wondering if anyone out there with an older car (or new car) has obtained an extended warranty through US Fidelis or other company and how is the service? Any info is appreciated.
I am pretty sure I got stuff in the mail from them and threw it away. I have a 99 Olds Cutlass with 160,000 miles on it and it has been pretty trouble free. Runs fine and gets 29mpg on the highway where it's driven 95% of the time with no drama. All I have been doing to it is routine maintenance. Oil changes/tires/brakes and that's about it. Routine maintenance wouldn't be covered anyway.
