Haha! Rolling with laughter

The monthly instalment and 3 year period isn’t something they normally offer. Special request only.

I have been speaking to the sales guy for around a week, and they knew that I had been discussing with WD also, so were throwing everything they had at me.

I feel I got w good deal with manageable costs and a get out clause if they don’t pay up.

Wierdly, I am also hoping I can claim soon too Smile

Thumbs Up

Sorry to rain on your parade, but that’s what I had 7 years ago, maybe they changed their policy ....

One query, it does include wear and tear doesn’t it, otherwise they have a huge get out clause.

Yes full wear and tear with maximum cover they can give. No betterment or other get out clauses. I asked for a number of scenarios of both payout and non payout. Quite happy this is a good level of cover.

Ok, so here is the result after my first claim for noisy cam followers/fuel injector...

The whole thing is a complete scam with no intention to pay out. Weasel words indeed.

Very quick to take my money, but very difficult to talk to in the case of a claim. I received no formal account paperwork, and no request for service information until a claim was made.

After agreeing I could have a full refund of not able to produce service history the selling garage promised me, I was then able to produce this paperwork. Quentin agreed that my service history was suitable for the claim, then I was told that I had two choices.
1. Take the refund and walk away
2. Go ahead with the claim but lose the ability to have a refund if unsuccessful
I probed deeper on the second option, and was told; “it’s not up to us to prove your claim is not valid, it is for you to prove your claim is valid”. I was then told that this investigation would be carried out at my expense, and any payments outstanding on a full 1 year period would be due on payout. So basically if I could at my cost prove the claim was valid, they would deduct about £1,100 off regardless of paying by direct debit monthly, and I would lose my £500 paid so far. Net result is I would have to pay the cost of the investigation plus the cost of 7 months payments that would therefore be due.

I walked away, took the refund and put it in an account to accumulate for future repairs.

The noise is what I believe to be fuel injectors, which have responded very well to injector cleaner.

Not sure how WarrantyDirect would have behaved. Quentin seems like a reasonable guy, but based on the actions of his team, I would not recommend WarrantyWise at all.

Sorry it didn’t end more positively!
Yawn

Hate to say I told you so but...............

I also got Quentin’s e mail address, ended up with full refund and expenses incurred due to their lack of action......but that’s not the point, you buy a warranty to pay for claims, not to get it refunded.

I went with WD, just the core protection, to cover engine anD transmission, at £600 for three years It has to be worth the risk

You certainly did, and I certainly validated you were 100% correct Wink

Thanks for the advice on engine cover Dave. Do you know about any small print about covering an investigation at your own cost?

Warranty direct appears to have a pretty good reputation on here.

Your experience with warranty wise sounds disgusting.

With WW.....they wanted my engine stripping down to investigate the cause, at my expense. I couldn’t afford that to then be declined

With WD, I hope not, but at worst I have only lost £600. Full documents are available on line, and hopefully if the worst happens then it’s going to be obvious

Not a good experience at all...

I am beginning to fee it’s better to just swap the car out with a dealer every 24 months.

At least that my line to the Missus! Rolling with laughter

Thanks for taking time to update us all. That is valuable information and will help those who want a warranty in the future.
Good luck with getting your current issue resolved, and hope you have a better experience with any warranty going forward.
Cheers
