Fd warranty quote from Troy for Platinum for zero deductible 7/100,000 was $4160.
That was the highest price.
2014 A6 2.0t premium plus less than 10,000 miles.

Seems a high price for an extra 3 years for a base model.

Default EW Quote

Here is what Troy sent me and theres a large differential based on the deductible which is confusing to me. $1500 drop with a $250 deductible?
Its about $800 difference with Audi factory EW vs Troy's quote for 7yr/100K with $100 deductible: $4100 vs $3300 with FD respectively.
Not sure the difference is enough for me to have heartburn over a non-factory product on this very complicated high tech vehicle.
Owners please weigh in!
thank you

Not sure what you mean, Troy's warranty is the factory extended warranty. And also not sure why deductible is confusing, you pay less if you are willing to assume more cost per repair...in your example, if you think you will get the car fixed more than 6 times when out of original warranty, get the lower deductible plan.

Technically, there are no Audi factory extended warranties, just third party companies including Fidelity, which many dealers like to use to sell policies. The only "extended" warranty Audi offers is with CPO pre-owned cars.

Snagit, Gronk: thank you and MB does sell an EW of their own product so I assumed Audi did as well. My error.
By confusion I meant such a large price difference between the $100 and $250 EW total price, thats all.
So you experienced Audi guys recommend Troy's quote and product I assume?
If so then its good enough for me and thank you.

I don't buy any of these extended warranties. I invest the money toward future repairs - a better bet than the Las Vegas warranty gamble where the house on average will always win. Also, too many exclusions.

Fifty five percent of consumers never use their extended warranties.

On one GM forum many people lost when their popular warranty company went out of business.

Sorry you are right, bad choice of words. It should be Audi-branded extended warranty provided by Fidelity. According to Troy, if the car still has a year left on the factory warranty you can still purchase it. My dealer takes it so I am happy enough.

I think for $2300 (what I paid for an extra 6/60 beyond the 3 years I've had the car already) is well worth some piece of mind for a car I will keep for a long time. I am willing to pay a $250 deductible to keep costs down. Keep in mind that my high cost of living area jacks up dealer service prices like you wouldn't believe.

An "extra" 6y/60mi for $2300? Not to be picky, but in the interest of clarification for new folks here considering an extended warranty, that would provide only 1 extra year or 10K miles (whichever comes first) beyond the factory 4y/50K warranty. The named extended warranties are inclusive of the OEM warranty, not additive. Another example: a $4K+ 7y/100K Fidelity warranty would provide an additional 3y/50K mi whichever comes first.

You paid $2,300 for what is essentially an extra 10k miles of coverage for the typical driver and you are on the hook for the first $250 of each repair during that 10k miles? Please tell me that I am mistaken.

As I mentioned the car is 3 years old already. I just checked the fine print, and my 6 years and 60k start on my service contract date, which is when I bought the warranty. Which means I am covered for an additional 6 years (so around 2020) or 60k miles beyond my certified odometer reading as the start of the contract.

I had already checked this point with Troy before ordering the plan, and the terms agree. Now as for weird things that might not be covered even under the platinum warranty, I don't have any insight.

Which company? Most of these warranties run from the "service date", i.e. When the car was originally put into service. I am not trying to give you a hard time. I put 140,000 miles on my current Audi and have just ordered a new one. I would love to find a warranty company that adds 100k miles onto the original 50,000 mile warranty.

Dealer threw in factory extended warranty for free.
