So how does OP buy an ASC warranty if OP already owns the car? Does he need to re-buy the car from them? FWIW- many companies to avoid getting defrauded will not sell a warranty to an owner not already covered- many buyers think nothing of buying a warranty AFTER the car has an issue, then submitting the claim. With a dealer involved, they may share contractual obligation for fraud if they sell a warranty for a car with a known issue.I just bought an ASC extended warranty from the used car dealer that sold me my 2010 X5 with 96,000 miles. This week the water pump failed and they covered the pump no questions asked ($800) and the shop said they were surprisingly easy to work with. They didn’t cover fluids, diagnostics, or the expansion tank that cracked but it did save me $800. I’ve always heard not to buy a extended warranty that is not from the manufacturer but I’m happy the way this turned out.
