New XC70: extended warranty questions

I've only owned Swedish cars and know going into my next one that with considerable attention and expense they'll provide an enjoyable and practical driving experience for a long time. I currently own a V50 but for a variety of reasons, expect to outgrow it within 18 months.<p>I'm just about to pull the trigger on a loaded 2009 XC70 T6. This will likely be my last fuel car and I would like to keep it at least 6-7 years.<p>So I'm looking at extended warranties. I've never had one before, so if anyone has some thoughts on how I should approach the extended warranty, I'd really appreciate it.<p>I'm getting the following quotes for Volvo's warranties:<br>$0 deductible, 7 years / 75,000 miles : $3,500<br>$100 deductible, 7 years / 75,000 miles : $3127<p>And this quotes on a GE warranty offered by the dealer<br>$50 deductible, 7 years / 75,000 miles: $2134<p>The broker I'm using is getting more information on both warranties but figured I'd ask here as well: <p>Some questions (but please feel free to offer any advice/experience you have, particularly if you've had a GE warranty before):<br>-Are these decent prices on extended warranties?<br>-Do the warranties get more expensive if I purchase them later (before 15k miles)? Would there be any reason to buy it up front?<br>-If I get a Volvo warranty, do I have to do all service at a Volvo dealer or just the scheduled maintenance?<br>-What questions should I ask/things should I look for when I get more information on the warranty? What parts shoudl I be absolutely sure are covered?<p>I'm operating under the somewhat naive and completely unfounded hope that the 08/09 models will be a little more reliable than the previous ones but will still require some major maintenance given the amount of time I expect to keep the car.<p>Thanks.

As long as your car is under 15mo/15K miles, you can buy the VIP warranty without an inspection and surcharges. If you want a warranty, stick with the Volvo and contact:<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=70337" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=70337</A><p>And yes, the Volvo warranty gets more expensive after 15mo/15k and really expensive after 30mo/30K.

Contact Bob Kennedy or Greg Cole at University Volvo in Charlotte. Bob is the sponsor/moderator in the OSD forum. I just got a much better deal than your quote on an 8 year 100K miles $200 deductible plan.<p>I had the same plan on my V50. It almost paid for itself the first time I used it and, since it is transferable, it was a big selling point when I sold my V50.

Quick followup: I did drop a line to Bob as well as you suggested, but got a response from Greg shortly thereafter. And yeah, the quotes look good. <p>Thanks, everyone.
