Hi everyone,

Seeking advice on whether I should take out an extended car warranty. I've just purchased a 2014 Mini Cooper S Countryman, and wonder if it's worth paying $2,600 for 3 years cover. It is the higher insurance cover which means claims are only capped to the value of the car.

The Mini has a full service history at BMW South Melbourne, and the dealership (Zagame) has just completed a major service.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

thats a hard one, bearing in mind these company's are in it to make money and from past experience will do what ever they can when a falls faulty not to hand over money to repair it with wear and tear or service item at end of its serviceable life or if that dont fit drive abuse or blame the brand for having a known problem within their design even,, with petrol mini's timing chains are a serviceable item now in the eyes of bmw and also these company's, and without doubt before your car hits 100.000 miles it will need one, and trouble with getting to 100.000 miles is that car would of ran with timing chain miles our for a very long time which will without any doubt kill off other components cat 02 sensors even wash the bores and destroy the piston rings or over fuel and cause heat damage from that, hence why i say and keep saying to people treat the timing chain as the timing belt change it 60k tops,, would be interesting to see how a warranty company would see the chains and wear knowing its a weak point, so could pay at that money to find they wont cover it, or get it in writing that chains are cover no matter what until a given mileage
