Ok, most of you know the deal with my car. It has a lot of mods. <p>EVOLVE ECU, dp, exhaust. <br>Springs and sway bars<br>E slot rotors, pads, S/S lines<br>Full body kit<p>My car is nearing 50k miles. I love it and plan to keep it for a while. Who knows...when the EVOLVE big turbo kit hits the market, I may just plunk my money down and make my car into a serious hp bruiser...<p>Here is my question - if I want to get the Volvo extended warranty, I need to start making plans now. In a few thousand miles, I'll be over 50k and I believe I need to buy it before i hit 50k.<p>On a car like mine - do you guys think Iwould be flushing money down the drain, or do you think it's a wise investment given the likely repairs down the road?<p>I'm sure if my motor blows up or a shock starts leaking, the dealer may try to hose me and say "mods are at fault".... but if my A/C goes out, or my radiator starts leaking.....some of these repairs could easily add up to big $$ over the long term.<p>A) What is the average cost for the extended warranty? <br>B) does the warranty go to 100k?<br>C) what would the likely repair bills be on just th eminor stuff that will add up between now and 100k that would be most likely covered...<p>do the numbers make sense and I should buy this...or am I better off just fixing stuff and eating the repair bills along the way.<p>I tend to think that my experience will vary with the dealers. some dealers would be more than happy to cover things b/c they ar emore mod friendly, and others would not be....or maybe that's wrong...and once you get on the extended warranty they try to nickel and dime you and not cover stuff.<p>my only experience with an extended warranty was on my S70 which was NOT a volvo warranty. i bought that car froma lexus lot.used...and bought a thrid party warranty. that warranty was AMAZING and they fixed quite a few things..i came out ahead or at the worst broke even, in terms of what I paid for the warranyt and ho wmuch was covered by it over the next efw years of coverage..of course that car was prety much stock..but also...the warrnaty was NOT through Volvo..it was the third party company...and I wonder if on a modded car you're better of buy8ing the warranty from them...if they don't see the car or inspect it...with a volvo warranty...does the money come out of "volvo's" pocket...or does volvo just have a third party insurance copmany cover the costs..<p>are dealers discouraged from doing extended warranty repairs b/c they money comes from volvo, or Volvo NA pays and dings the dealer for excessive repairs....or can the dealer repair all they want, and actually make moeny off the repairs..<p>i want to get a setup where the local dealer will NOT have any incentives financially to try and deny my claims. i'm not sure how the extended warranty works through volvo. <p>any input?
