Now that I have my car back after roof problems I'm thinking about getting a warranty.

Mercedes Signature warranty is £500 :eek:

Third parties, for example, WarrantyDirect Gold, cost around £250.

I've heard some of these warranties ain't worth the paper they're written on. Anyone got any experience of third party warranties? Recommendations? Advise?

Cheers,
SImon

There are some people that have made large claims who think they are very worth while! You should check out the individual claims limit on the policies, some are very low which wouldn't cover much if you needed major work.

That's what I thought when MB invited me to renew my cover 6 months ago. I've just spent > £250 having my roof fixed. And they're still not sure whether the problem has been properly cured.

Given that the 3rd party one had covered those problems it would have made financial sense.

£250/yr I'm prepared to gamble, but £500 does seem an awful lot.

What worries me more is that if I took one and tried to make a claim, they'd start giving it "Sorry, that's not covered."
