I personally don't know of anyone that has made a successful claim on an aftermarket none manufacturers extended car warranty. I'm ringing again tomorrow, no recognition yet of my email with photos sent to the warranty company. I think the "sudden failure", will be their get out clause. Damage caused by wear & tear, their expected written response, if I eventually get one.Suppose you'd feel better if they turned round and said Sir do you want to buy this book of nonsense for £400 just put it with your cars paper work you won't need it anymore.
Warranty companies use a lot of scare tactics like telling you that your high pressure fuel pump if it failed would cost you over £2500 to replace & then citing several owners who didn’t have any warranty & they received crippling bills to get the car up & running again.It's quite interesting reading this. I've always been a bit dubious about ANY warranty that's basically an insurance policy in disguise, but I didn't realise the companies try this hard to get out of paying!
I bought a warranty for 12 months when I bought my Mondeo ST, cost me about £300 if I remember correctly (it was back in 2014). Fortunately I didn't have to claim on it as nothing went wrong in the first 12 months of ownership. I only bought the warranty because I bought the Mondeo from a private seller and I'd never spent that sort of money (£5700) on a private sale before, so just wanted it for a bit of peace of mind I guess.
Bloody glad I didn't have to try and claim though.....

How’s that come about then ?I must be going through a good period of Kama, MOPAR have just said they'll cover the full cost of the shocks. My faith in Fiat has returned, not the dealer or RAC though. I'll be avoiding any products from RAC like a plague now, inc insurance and their breakdown cover.
Their extended warranties are truly "SHOCKING". Perhaps I'll have a sudden failure to renew my current breakdown cover with them.
It was an free mot insurance from the manufacturer I didn't know I had, which covered one claim for up to a maximum of a year. When I rung them back up with regards to how they'd make payment, they agreed to pay the full claim. I've also saved them close to £200 by having the work done outside of the dealers. This insurance product was authorised by Fiat and still in existence for new customers from what I can gather.How’s that come about then ?
