    Dear US owner, Please educate me on the extended warranty

    I'm seriously thinking about purchasing a used 996.
    My intention is to find a private owner with a well-maintained car that is still under basic warranty. The next step would be to purchase an extended warranty to protect my behind from all the RMS issues.

    My experience with GM extended warranty, GMPP, was great. There are dealers that sell it for about 50% of the list value. I purchased a 7y/65K, 0 ded, GMPP for just over $1K.

    However, the local P-car dealer said that porsche doesn't sell extended warranty per-se and the best they can do is to do CPO on my car at a cost of $2K. CPO will extend the warranty by 2 years, and there are no other options or alternatives.

    Is this really the case? Is the situation that dark?

    Re: Dear US owner, Please educate me on the extended warranty

    This is the best you will get (CPO).

    Third party extended warranties are really a hit or miss, expensive for Porsches and these companies have a bad habit of dissappearing every few years.

    Re: Dear US owner, Please educate me on the extended warranty

    Another thing to keep in mind is that you can replace the RMS for less than $2K.....

    Well, but if it happens again and I need a new engine, I'll be facing an $8K bill for this

    Re: Dear US owner, Please educate me on the extended warranty

    Also, is $2.5K an average price to pay for a CPO of a car that is still under warranty?

    A new engine to cure the RMS problem is a rare occurance....

    Isn't it the standard course of action, when the geometry of the seal fails the measurement spec? I understand that there is a tool that is used to measure the gaps and if the measurement is outside the range, engine replacement is recommended?

    That's right, but still rare....
