has anybody explored these new warranties? my understanding is that you can buy one year or two year bumper-to-bumper coverage, though i don't know what it costs. i spoke to my dealer yesterday and learned a few things i thought i'd share here. first off, they have to do apparently a four hour inspection of the car, including a leakdown and compression. basically a full PPI and then some. it wasn't clear to me who pays for that labor, though my general assumption is that they wouldnt' do this gratis and FNA sure ain't picking up the tab! second, the car has to be completely up to date on its scheduled services. this latter point is interesting, since while RoW manuals have always/generally stipulated this distinction of time -vs- mileage on the services, many NA manuals (especially recently) have not. and this has been the topic of much debate here, as we all know. he said that as of MY 2002, all manuals now stipulate this time -vs- mileage distinction. furthermore, based on my understanding from this discussion, FNA has issued TSBs to clarify this point for cars that did not have this laid out in their manuals. and the magic number shall be, drum roll please, THREE years. of course we can debate whether that's reasonable or not until the cow's come home. my 550 is now 4.5 years young and hasn't had its major yet. i am planning to do it overwinter next year (5.5 years young) when the car should have something like 11K miles on it (hopefully more!). apparently, after they do that major service, they could add the warranty. so i've got a year to think about it, but was curious to hear if anyone else has availed themselves of this pre-owned warranty coverage. tia, doody.
