    Is it worth buying an extended warranty for a Cayenne S?

    Hi, I just purchased a 2004 Cayenne S. Just trying to get feedback if it is worth buying an extended warranty. Thanks in Advance

    An extended warranty is just insurance. How much...

    ...insurance do you need? Only you can answer that. For instance, some insure their cars with $50 and $100 deductibles (in collision and comp. coverages) and pay high premiums, and some buy that coverage with $1000 deductibles. I'm among the latter, and people are amazed at how low my premiums are.

    Back to vehicle-repair policies. I don't buy extended warranties for ANYTHING. BUT...I've never owned a Porsche or any other vehicle for which parts are so expensive. I plan to buy one for my Turbo. I got one quote for 5 years & 100,000 miles for c. $2500 or 6 years & 100,000 miles for c. $2900, both with (I think) a $100-per-occurence deductible. This warranty claims to cover everything the factory warranty does EXCEPT 'wear-out' items. In my case, the spring dampers (known forever and incorrectly as shock absorbers) are part of the air-suspension struts and so aren't covered. I haven't decided whether that's a deal breaker. Call your dealer and ask the price on the 220-amp, water-cooled alternator your Cayenne is equipped with. Can you afford to replace that including several hours at maybe $110 per hour?

    I think I'm buying an extended warranty.

    Re: An extended warranty is just insurance. How much...

    I do not have any information about extended warranties that Porsche might offer, however, I do have experience with third party warranty companies and I can tell you first hand that those warranties are not worth the paper they are printed on. Only buy an extended warranty that is guaranteed and administered by the manufacturer.
