Forgive me if this is the wrong forum to post this:
When I purchased my 2012 TDI, the finance manager at the dealer offered me and extended warranty contract for 7 years, 100k I think. I can't remember the exact price other than I thought it was totally beyond reason.
What is the general consensus on these? Are they a rip off or do you think they are worth looking into? Through VW or aftermarket? How much should I pay? etc etc.
A little about me: I drive about 12k a year and unlike prior cars, I want to keep this one for approx 10 years.
Any input is appreciated!
2012 Passat SE TDI. DSG, 35% tint, VCDS Rain Sensor Wiper Mod
2013 JSW TDI DSG. 35% tint, smoked side markers

"If stupid got us into this mess, how come it can't get us out?"
I didn't like it that it was not a vw extended warranty but another agency. The dealership was not very up to date on all the details, they just kept saying everything is included except the usual. So I was asking for a complete list of the usual and they started rifling through papers and clearing their throats.
Is your warranty from vw or another company? Can I get a real vw extended warranty?

I never buy the extended warranty but I did this time. I drive 20K a year and since this is a new platform so to speak I bought it. I put 10 grand down, got the same finance rate but only paid 1400 for my warranty and I got the 100K.
Are you sure you guys didnt get suckered into buying the gap insurance and all that was wrapped up in the warranty? I had 2 choices for the top warranty. Basic 7/100 and then 7/100 with gap insurance and some other insurance. I opted out of the gap and other ad on.

We had bought extended warranty from CHRIS FARNHAM at VW of Langhorne, PA.
Was best price of anywhere for the 7 year or 70,000 mile deal.
\Previously bought extended warranty from Chris for 2004 W12 Phaeton,,and was well worth the money.
His price is far superior to that quoted by the local dealers here in Florida.
