We often get asked by clients looking to buy a used car.. should they get an extended or after market warranty? The simple answer is yes, as a shop that works only on German cars, we know the costs for repairs can cause sticker shock, especially if you have never owned a German car before. After market warranties are a great way to save on those repairs and keep your car in shape. There are a few things to think about though, first and foremost ... READ THE FINE PRINT! Not all warranties are good ones, and it pays to really read the contract and what they cover as well as what they don't. Look for one that will also cover OE parts, not insist you use a sub-standard knock off parts. It pays to spend the time and shop around for the best warranty you can find.
