Quote, originally posted by jettaboydc » I'm going to purchase a extended warranty from JM&A, I bought in my 2006 GLI and I have the clucks coming from a stop from 3 to 2 to 1 and going from 1 to 2. The dealer ship charged me $112 to so call scan my DSG and they said they found fault codes. This was saturday. He then said that he would call VWOA and ask what to do. He told me to call back today. I called and he said that VWOA told him that the whole transmission needs to be replaced. Mind you it is fine once it goes pass second gear. REV is fine too. Its really just 1-2 gears. SO I got 75,000 miles on my car and told him I dont have the cash right now for this. He said go see the JM&A guy. I saw him and asked him eight times does it cover the DSG, he said a transmission is a transmission. So should I get the Warranty?
From my own personal experience w/ extended warranty (Warrantech)... once the company found out I had a expensive issue (Bad DSG) they sent a inspector to come check out the car. Upon finding out I had aftermarket suspension, they voided my warranty and refunded me 1/3 of what I paid for. WTF does suspension and DSG have to do w/ each other...nothing!
There was an exclusion page that states all kinds of crap which included modifying the suspension (of course I didn't get to see this prior to buying the warranty).
All I can recommend is...read the fine print!
