Extended Warranty

Hi
I just bought a X3 2010 with about 27k on it.

The car run great, but the genuine warranty expire in one month.

I have the choice to take an aftermarket extended warranty.
A good product apparently.

Anyway my question is regardless of the price,
What should i take under cover?

Powertrain 36 months

Or its worth it to take a "full" cover one ( include door locks, power windows etc etc...)

I will pay around 1100$-1500$
Depend of the inclusions.

Thanks for your opinion!

That's a good price. I took the full coverage when I got my '10 x3 last year. Sure I overpaid but I wanted some piece of mind with the tranny and sunroof issues frequently mentioned here. Already needed it for a new passenger mirror motor. Didn't cover my dead battery, though.

What I did before my warranty ran out.. I went to an independent garage specialized in BMW and imports and had them run a full scan on the car to see if everything are operating as it should. Found a few problems.. Went to the dealership and had them fixed it.

Good idea!
Question about the famous AT?
My car have a very low milleage and run like new. except the tranny seem like lazy sometime it shift correctly but you can feel some knock sometime.

Under warranty, what they can do to fix it? Or do we have to live with this problem?

Try the dealer

You can shop extended warranty/maintenance policies via BMW dealers. You might be surprised, and, having one from BMW means less hassle down the road.

Looks like an Australian warranty.

This is better (looks more comprehensive than most, Enhanced Electrical is good) :

3rd party warrantys aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

Either buy a direct BMW warranty or save your money and put it in the bank.
