Audi A6 Warranty
I purchased in April 2012 an automatic A6 Avant SE 2.7 TDI regd Sep 2008 from a London dealer with 2 free annual services and a one year warranty which will shortly expire (no problems therefore no claims in year).
It has been continuously serviced by Audi.
Now at 53,000 miles - I do about 9,000 pa - the latest Which? Survey shows that 4-5 year old A6s like mine have only average reliability.
1) Should I take out a further warranty from Audi (costs £650, or £538 with £100 excess) or from Warranty Direct Ltd, which covers wear and tear and is £100 cheaper pa?
2) If the latter, should I opt for dealer repair or independent (£60 cheaper)?
3) Also, should I go for 2 or 3 years?
Clearly the question is what is the likelihood of one or more repairs over the next 3 years which will set me back over £1,500.
I plan to keep the car for several years
