Mein Auto: 2012 BMW X1 XDRIVE28I
Should I buy a warranty on a used 2012 BMW X1 XDRIVE28I

Hi there,

I am picking up my 2012 BMW X1 XDRIVE28I from the dealer in a couple of days, and I am debating if I should buy warranty or not. The car has only 48,000 km on it, the BMW warranty just expired, and I am wondering if it's worth to spend the money on a warranty. If you think it's worth it, which one do you suggest given that I live in Toronto-Canada?

Thanks for your help

Just expired? How long ago was the warranty expired? Did the dealer give you an option to extend it from BMW or a 3rd party? If you still have time and offered by BMW, get it. You can talk to an SA in either BMW Toronto or if in the west end, Pfaff.
She said that to me once... about being a machine.

I am thinking about buying the extended warranty as well but there is a reason the warranty companies are still in business, they make money from them most of the time. I am not going to do the service warranty but am thinking about doing the 1 or 2 year drive train warranty. Thoughts?

I think we need some details here. Buying from a BMW dealer? Who's providing the extended warranty? How much is it? Is the warranty transferable? Extended warranties are losers most of the time for consumers (expected utility per customer lower than what you pay), except when they are not. You're basically gambling with your tolerance for risk- A sure loss of $2000 vs. a large chance to pay < $2000 OR a small chance to pay > $2000. All depends on how much you value the sure thing.
