    Hi thanks for letting me join.

    I got a letter from MB informing me that the warranty on my car is coming to an end. I bought the car used last year.

    I am wondering if I should bother as the quote from MB for 2 years is just shy of a grand. I drive just around my local area and once or twice to Germany. To be honest I expect things to work for a long time being a Merc. I am a sporty driver but not a rough one. Lol. A lady driver with two big dogs in the back, hence the big car.
    But it does have many electrical gadgets which could go wrong.

    Or should I look at other companies offering same for less?

    I have gap cover on the car already which I bought away from Mercedes as their quote was way too high too at the time. But that won’t help at a breakdown.

    I also have AA cover for breakdowns.

    Now being widowed money is tighter and I need to make sure I am not wasting it on unnecessary stuff.

    Is it worth it or just one big rip off?

    I personally don’t think so, I wouldn’t expect any major failures in a 2016 Mercedes and £500 per annum will go a long way to fix any problems with a good Independent MB specialist garage which the AA will recover you to directly in the event of a breakdown away from home.

    Hello and welcome

    Put the grand in an account and see how much you have left of it after the 2 years

    Depends what you are comfortable with but bearing in mind your usage and I assume low mileage I wouldn’t bother. My son covers 20k miles a year in his 220d 16 plate and the manufacturer’s warranty expires in a months time so it will be interesting to see what he’s quoted for an extra year, I would imagine he’ll take it out due to his daily commute of 70 miles round trip to work and I anticipate the cost will be circa £700pa, this works out at 3.5p a mile

    Ok. Thanks you. I won’t bother with it then and see how it goes.
