What! do you have to buy it at the start.
Ford just offered me extended warranty on my Falcon but it's just turned 3yrs old.

My point is why does have have to buy the extended warranty at the purchase of the vehicle when it's something that's not required for 3yrs when the original warranty expires. Anything could happen in those 3 years.

I agree lots of landrovers and Nissans O/s. Back in the early nineties i even bought some defender utes for underground work at Norseman. From all accounts they went well, not that any vehicle underground lasts for more than 18 months. One of the views from Snr management was that they were good because they slowed the guys down on the bitumen.

Bought some early Rockies once for Leinster underground, the logic being you can get twice as many for your dollars so what if they dont last as long.

In this industry cars are considered consumables, depreciation or resale dont count. Long term mileage doesnt matter much either, they never get a lot on the clock.

As they say horses for courses. Not upset about his post at all, fills in a quite day.

Johnno

While your waiting and whinging about a reply from Davoe, you can start typing and give me a reply regarding your point of working o/s or not.

You cant complain about people not answering you if you dont answer questions yourself.

Terry,
I had a Rodeo and was able to purchase the Extended factory warranty before the initial warranty ran out. Make sure it is the genuine extended factory warranty as it's the same as the original factory warranty with respect to making claims etc. Also you may find when you wheel and deal you may be able to get it thrown in or at a discount. I reckon Holden warranty is probably the best out of all the manufactures going from what I have experienced with owning 2 Holdens and I have a few things replaced that I thought they wouldn't come to the party with like a clutch at 50,000km for example.

I had an extended warranty on a camry I had never used it. It is not so much a warranty as insurance and has plenty of exclusions/conditions my best advice is to approach it like any insurance and measure it up against risk/return. How long do you intend on keeping the rodeo for - the extended waranty only kicks in after manafactures waranty (how long is that?) I would have thought they were better value on a second hand car

Ultimately it comes down to how long you intend to keep the vehicle. You should howver be able to buy it any time prior to the existing warranty expriing. If in doubt wait and see.

My out-laws got the extended warranty with their Jackaroo 3.0l TD and they are glad they did. They had only done 60,000 at the 3 year mark and 3 months into the extended warranty the timing belt snapped. Big $$$ if it wasn't covered by warranty. Im my eyes the extended warranty is cheap insurance. But as stated before- make sure it is the factory extended warranty. The out-laws were offered theirs near the end of the original warranty.
