  1. Extended Warranties

    Alfa Giulia
    Does anyone know whether it possible to extend the warranty after the 3 years is up and how much it would cost for a Quad
  2. External Warranties

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Having done a quick search on here there isn't much comment on decent external warranties available. Can anyone recommend a good'n. Due to pick up my new Alfa on Sunday and fancy the idea of having a warranty in place as a back up. The car is an 09 plate 159 Ti 1.9jtdm with 42k. I am going to...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Things must be good if they are offering this...? L'Alfa Romeo Giulietta MY14 lancée en France 2 year constructor + 3 years dealer. Unlimited mileage. :thumbs:
  4. Direct warranties

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Forgive me as I am sure is is old ground. My 1.9 jtdm has the dreaded gearbox whine so will likely need a rebuild at some point. Does anyone have experience of claiming from Warrantywise, Warrantydirect etc etc. as there is advice from others on here with the same gearbox problem to take out...
  5. PAS fluid change & independant warranties

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I have been looking thro the threads on here and making a list of things I need to check/do. Forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere.. My 57 plate lusso has the dreaded red PAS fluid. I have been advised by 2 very good garages that there is a small chance of ruining the whole rack/pump...

    Fiat SA announced today that all cars bought from 1 January 2013 will carry an all new 3 year full maintenance plan and 3 year warranty.. Just thought I would let you guys know :thumbs:
  7. Are any warranties actually worth it?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I think my third year warranty on my 159 is due to run out any day now and I was wondering if anyone actually recommends any of the available warranties? Third party or dealer? Reason I ask is because it's a complete minefield it seems. A quick quote from warrantywise suggested about £480 for...
  8. Used Car Warranties

    General Motoring Discussion
    I'm sure this has been done beofre but has anyone had any GOOD experiences of buying a warranty? I've got 3 months on mine when I bough the car however I don't fancy a huge bill if/when something goes bang! It has been serviced according to schedule and the cambelt was done before I bought it so...
  9. Warranties & Remaps

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm looking at buying a 56 plate Brera 2.4 JTDM this week. I'm getting it remapped and the DPF removed straight away. The car will come with a 12 month warranty but I'm told the remap will invalidate the whole warranty. I get why insurers rule out remaps. Does anybody know of a warranty...
  10. Manufacturer / Dealer / Pioneer Warranties ?

    Alfa MiTo
    I bought my '10 MiTo about 8 (I think) months ago from an Alfa dealer. That dealer installed a pants Pioneer Sat Nav system before I bought it and it keeps not working. :cry: Do any of you awesome AOers know where I stand on getting it replaced/repaired by a different Alfa garage under...
  11. Warranties

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've been pondering buying a warranty to cover my GTV and just wanted to know if anyone had any experience of this. Warranty Direct are trying to sell me a "comprehensive" policy which covers wear and tear for £425. Due to the mileage on my car I'd need to pay 30% towards parts and a £50...
  12. Mangoletsi - Warranties

    General Alfa Discussion
    Dear All, Just a little bit of a heads up really. Firstly. If you purchase a car from 'mangos' then make sure that you are getting the warranty that you are entitled to, and have paid for. If you buy an Alfa approved car you should be getting a proper Alfa warranty, with 12 months AA...
  13. Dealer Warranties

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Do the Dealers foot the bill for dealer Warranties or do Alfa Romeo cover the cost of any warranty work ? The reason I ask is that I'm wondering if the dealer will give a warranty on any car regardless of condition safe in the knowledge that they won't have to pay for any warranty work
  14. 3rd Party Extended Warranties - A good idea?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I've been quoted £350 per year for an 07 Brera, and to be fair, the cover seems quite good. I know if I'd had a warranty on my last car (Audi A4) I'd be quids in (due to some hefty repairs) Has anyone else taken out such a warranty? I've just bought the car, and don't really want to shell out...
  15. Extended Warranties

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello Everyone, As my username suggests I'm looking for a GT. I've just been to see a 3 year old JTD with almost 100k on the clock. It's an ex lease company car with a printout of everything that's been done, including timing belt @ 82k but no mention of waterpump. The dealer mentioned that...

  17. Extended Warranties?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Can anyone recommend any extended warranties? My 3 year warranty is up in November so I'm thinking of taking one out, but is it worth it?? Cheers
  18. After market warranties

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi to all out there. Does anyone have any knowledge of warranties covering engine parts that are worth the money? I am as usual paranoid about the cambelt even though it has been changed recently. Also is it to be expected that a cambelt change that fails resulting in major damage will be...
  19. Used car warranties

    General Motoring Discussion
    When having bought a used car previously, I cannot remember if I ever got anything in writing to support whatever warranty the car came with, although it would seem natural that some written details be provided. I certainly didn't get anything in writing when I spent nearly £50 k on a used...
  20. Aa Warranties And Alfas - Bad News!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello all, just thought I'd relate the problem I'm having with an AA warranty and my Alfa 147 1.6 TS... I bought the car in March from a dealer (not a main dealer) after falling in love with it's looks and that revvy engine. Anyway, a couple of weeks back I had a problem with the gear change...
