Thanks.. after reading the fine print and the many customer bad experiences on google, I think I would stick with the universally approved Allianz Extended Warranty if it was me..

But hey... each to their own

Sounds like a fair enough price, assuming your happy with coverage and you will still have the car in 5. Personally I'd take the money an spend on upgrades

What's the price like with Allianz btw?

I'll see if I can cancel the extended warranty.

This is what I get back from my broker.

National on the other hand have unlimited claims up to the price of vehicle. No excess. Servicing as per vehicle handbook. Service at any licensed mechanic Australia wide. Full protection for 5 years. All parts covered except for the normal service parts like brakes etc.

I'd be reading the pds very carefully if I was you, with particular attention to section 11

+ 1 for these guys being experts of avoidance.

I have this cover and within the first six months my rocker cover gasket went as did the water pump. Both times I was told to take the car to their approved garage (not a BMW specialist) to have the problems fixed. It was only after the work was done that they quoted some small print to say I somehow wasn't covered.

as a result I had to pay a non-BMW specialist garage to do the work for twice what I could have had it done for (my flatmate works for BMW Sydney and I could have just took the car there).

This is a particular favourite clause of theirs I laugh at:

After the problem has been diagnosed (at your cost), the authorised repairer will fax NWC, quoting your Warranty contract number, current odometer reading of the Vehicle, a description of the problem, the repairs required, and the estimated cost of repairs.

NWC will then make a decision about whether to exercise its discretion in your favour or not.

......how very fucking kind of them....

Sorry to dig up an old thread - but I have had some luck dealing with NWC even after purchasing a warranty some years ago.

I recently received a full refund from National Warranty Company for the dud policy I was sold. I used a template letter from demandarefund.com.au, sent it to Presidian (the company that owns NWC) and within two weeks had a refund.

I couldn't believe it, as I (unintentionally) bought the policy back in 2013. The page is run by a group of lawyers from the Consumer Action group, who were available to follow up on my behalf if need be. Hit them up if you've EVER taken out a dud warranty! I'd even say the original poster might have some luck, even if the policy was bought back in 2012.

Garage List
last week I saw a quick bit about these 'warranties' on the TV news - apparently the ACCC are coming down on them as a scam. Based on the amount they taken in premiums compared with the amount they payout.

I haven't even had success with the authorised BMW Alliance warranty - so I would rather get a discount on the sale price at time of purchase.

+1

I remember when I bought my car from Qld a few years back. Had read a few of these threads and skipped the warranty (turns out i wouldnt have needed it for the first 2yrs). Wouldn't have minded it this year though #waterpump #gasketcoverleak
