Top 5 Warrantywise Pay Outs in October 2014


Here at Warrantywise, we love our cars. We cover all makes and models, including luxury models and supercars.

A manufacturer’s warranty tends to last for three years on new cars and this will protect you against costly car repair bills should parts of your vehicle fail or break unexpectedly. After those three years have lapsed however, you and your wallet are at risk.

Engine failure, faulty gearboxes and broken clutches can be very expensive to fix and more often than not they will have a knock on effect and damage other mechanical or electrical parts in the vehicle. You’ll be delighted to know that Warrantywise cover such consequential damage as standard on all warranty plans. It’s important to remember that the older the car, the more likely it is to break or to have had problems in the past, that could put strain on other parts.

You can never eliminate the risks completely but with a comprehensive extended or used car warranty, you will be ready and prepared for the worst.

If you’re new to warranties or not sure you need one, ask yourself these questions;

If your gearbox needed replacing today, could you afford it?

If the car went in for repair work today, could you afford a rental for 10 days?

Do you want to dip into your savings to keep the car running?

If you answered no to any of those questions then you would benefit from having an extended car warranty.

Peace of mind doesn’t come any stronger than with a used car warranty from Warrantywise, and below are the top 5 most expensive repairs we paid in October. We’re sure you’ll agree, these are price tags you’d rather avoid.

Make Model Fault Code Amount Paid
Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Engine £4650.00
Ferrari 612 Gearbox F1 Valve £3375.00
Audi Q7 Differential £3318.95
BMW 3 Series Turbo & DPF £3047.65
Kia Sorento Timing Chain £2950.00

It isn’t our intention to play on the fear factor here, but to ensure you’re aware of the real price you could have to pay for a car repair if you don’t have the protection in place for your vehicle.

I have been lucky to not have claimed in over a year, he has had 2 claims, both times you were prompt and paid out with out fuss, I hope I don’t need to use mine, but good to know you are there if I need you! keep up the good work
