Buying extended warranty for expired warranty V10+


Recommended Posts

I'm curious about the warranty options available for a 2017 V10+ with 16,000 miles that is no longer covered by the original warranty. Is Fidelity a viable choice? How much will the cost increase due to exceeding 10,000 miles?

I have been informed that these items are quite durable and warranty may not be necessary, but I would like the reassurance of having one.

R8 is more durable and dependable compared to Ferraris and Mclarens. We have seen an increasing number of requests for magnetic rides on new R8s. Ultimately, it all comes down to achieving piece of mind, therefore a guarantee could be valuable only for that purpose. Explore Autrella. My firm is a distributor for www.voyagewarranty.com.

Autrella has the most extensive coverage compared to other warranty companies and does not reject coverage for modified cars (limited to mild exhaust and intake modifications, tuning, and no extreme turbo kits).

Underneath your Fidelity details, this card is valid at all Audi shops and authorised independent retailers in the United States and Canada. I recommend choosing Gold coverage with a $250 deductible to maintain a lower premium and increase the likelihood of benefiting from the insurance. R8's are mechanically basic, therefore comprehensive features are unnecessary and better suited for exclusive coverage like Platinum.

I was satisfied utilising the Fidelity platform for two 911s I previously owned. Significant repairs were done once on the air conditioning evaporator and another time on the navigation system. Easy to work with, Porsche dealer also approved of them.

I like the R8. But is it bulletproof? Laughing out loud. Remember that the labour prices for even a Prius are exorbitant. To acquire a R8 without a guarantee, you need either be incredibly affluent or willing to take on significant financial risk.

Occasionally, you may get involved in a dispute over labour rates. A dealer may charge $250 per hour, whereas the warranty provider will only cover $200 per hour. Consider informing the shop or dealer you visit for repairs about this issue and ensure all details are thoroughly checked and confirmed. This is when you are deceived or tricked.

The situation varies depending on the warranty business. I had a labour dispute between the dealership and the warranty company where the dealership filed two service orders, one of which had an exaggerated labour rate intended for the warranty company. After being confronted, the dealership naturally retracted their statement.

Labour rates at the local independent business where I am located are around $240 per hour, specialising only in Audi automobiles, and considered rather inexpensive. Some dealers are charging $400 per hour. This is the reason why a guarantee is necessary. My guarantee is valid for another three and a half years. By the time my R8 is 13 years old, it will probably have only around 20 to 25,000 miles on it. I may need to think about selling it or purchasing another warranty at that time. I would not retain this automobile without a warranty.

I failed to add that I have been posting on other sites about my shocks leaking at barely 11,000 miles. Thankfully, my warranty covered the repair, but the whole cost amounted to $13,000 including labour. That is just absurd.
