I went with autoPom. One option they had in CA was an exclusion policy. It stated what was not covered. If it's not on the list it's not covered. Also they had a zero deductible and no charging for 18 months financing. I know they won't do an M6 but from what I saw they seemed good. I have not used them yet but I have seen great reviews.

Coverage does differ from state to state so you do need to see what is available to you and not go by reports of what is available in other areas.

Good luck.

Hope it's help. Never heard anyone mention about this.

@Colink: that's what I mean by the claiming process is really slow. If you're not the one with M6, just go with 5stars or AutoPom. Easier choice. I think most of the dealer accept 5stars warranty as their own CPO one. Drop and go style.

decision made

Well I pulled the trigger on the Fidelity Platinum coverage for my 2004 645Ci current milage 7,100 (yes, seven thousand one hundred), 7 years, 70,000 miles $50 deductible (zero if work done at selling dealer), $2,574.

I didn't find anyone else to offer exclusionary coverage except Autopom/Mercury, Platinum 4 years 48,000 miles $100 deductible $2,927 .

All of the following are named components:
Paragon Motor Club/Enterprise Financial Group, Inc. 5 years, 50,000 miles, $100 deductible, $4,916

Carchex/Integrity Automotive Protection/Royal Administration Services, Elite 6 years, 75,000 miles, $100 deductible, $2,884

Warranty Direct, XtraCare+ 5 years 1 month, 61,000 miles, $100 deductible, $8,726
The car is not my DD so I can tolerate some delay on processing claims. I will post my experience here as and when claims occur.

Thanks all for your earler input and fingers crossed!

Do they pay directly or do you have to make a claim?

I paid a $50 deductable, and they will bill Mercury for the balance. The SA set it all up.

Did you buy this warranty in california, or from an out of state dealership?

I understand it is cheap because of the exceptionally low current mileage.
Most of the negative coverage I have seen relates to dissatisfaction with the original terms of the contract. (for example wear and tear items, ball joints etc., coverage no longer valid after 50,000 miles)
Does anyone have bad experience not as a result of the above? They do have an A+ rating from BBB.
I am looking for a long term, low mileage warranty.

Did you end up purchasing the Fidelity Platinum? If so, what's been your experience?

I have not had to make any claims on the Fidelity warranty yet, which is a good thing, but unfortunately does not say anything about Fidelity!

After approximately 12 months I have made my first claim on my Fidelity Platinum warranty. Well actually the service advisor at the dealership made the claim and they paid direct to replace a sensor that was causing an Active Roll Stabilization warning light -about $900. No hassle, no delay. Very good first experience.

My service advisor at the dealer submitted another claim at ~15 months for the replacement of the ARS Block valve, total cost approximately $1680.

Fidelity wanted to inspect the car and did so within one working day of the claim being submitted.

They then paid the dealer direct for the repair without any issues.

Experience to date with my Fidelity Platinum Extended Warranty leaves me as a very happy camper. YMMV.

Fidelity warranty

I got the extended coverage on my 2008 650 when I purchased last year. All I can say is they paid the claim on my water pump replacement. My dealer took care of the contact with them. I probably will be submitting another claim on a headlight control module.

BTW: the consumer affairs sites only get the complaints(no one rights to say how good the service was). So it is hard to tell across the total sample space of customers. Every warranty company will gets complains on what they don't cover. I would frankly asked the sales people at the dealer if it is worth it.
