    extended warranty worth $?

    Any long-term boxster/(porsche in general) owners who bought the extended warranty from the dealer for a new car? covers everything except wear and tear....

    Is it worth it go pay $2k for 7yr/70,000 miles warrantee on a new 987 base model?

    Re: extended warranty worth $?

    Make sure you read what the extended warranty covers before you purchase it to determine if there's any exclusions or deductables.

    Re: extended warranty worth $?

    I would not do it. In fact, on my 986 I didn't. So for what its worth I put my money ...
    In virtually every case it is a simple money maker for the company. But, you might be able to get it really inexpensively through your insurer, allstate for instance has a plan which is relatively inexpensive and they are less likely to belly up.

    $2k for a 7 year warranty sounds like a bargain. In the UK, the standard warranty is only 2 years and then it cost $1400 a year to extend. Remember that an RMS failure out of warranty will cost $1k to fix and if the engine blows, you're talking about $15k for a replacement. If I could get a 7 year warranty for $2k over here, then I'd snap it up.

    Also make sure that the extended warranty is covered by Porsche not a 3rd party repaire shop. A friend of mine got scrwed because his extended warranty was covered by someone else that had no link to Porsche whatsoever.

    Probably be cheaper for us in the UK to but an extended warranty from PCNA, and then ship there car there and back if anything needs doing....

    Re: extended warranty worth $?

    Don't forget, you can have rather mundane issues like needing an AC compressor. or condenser, etc. and the cost can quickly escalate to a few $1000.........
