2012 Galaxy - is a warranty worth it?

Recommended Posts

Hi I would really appreciate some advice from Galaxy owners please!

We pick up our 62 reg Galaxy tomorrow morning. It's a 1.6 diesel titanium with 31k miles. It looks in great condition and was owned privately before by a registered disabled lady.

The garage are trying to sell us a 3 year extended warranty. Having never owned a Ford before, it would be great to hear from people who have had a similar car and if they had any problems. Our gut instinct is that if anything would go wrong, it's likely to be after the 3 years is up, as we are using the car for our family and will only drive around 12k miles a year. 

All comment would be welcome, pros and cons please!

It would be worth reading in depth what IS actually covered and what is NOT covered. 

My local ford dealer in the town I stay in is £90 an hour labour so prices of repairs would soon rack up at a dealer.

As above - the level of cover & parts failure conditions covered is vital . . . .  & at the end of the day any warranty is simply an insurance policy - you are in effect gambling that something expensive will go wrong, but hoping it doesn't  . . . .  & you are covered for potentially huge repair costs should x or y or z go wrong, but maybe not if parts a or b or c fail . .  so make sure the policy is suitable for your needs.

As previously stated, £0.69p per day is a small price to pay for at least some peace of mind i.m.o.
