Hendrick vs. BMW Extended Warranty

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi All,

I would like to know the BWM Rick Hendrick Autoguard vs. BMW Gold Coverage for 6yrs. / 100K miles? Is there a different with choosing one over the other. The dealer has quoted me the same price with both of these extended warranty coverage. Please comment on the PRO or CON.

Thank you.

I'm assuming the first is one from the dealer themselves or something like that?

Either way, I would go with the official BMW extended warranty if I were you, I'm going with that as well. Reason for this is the huge amount of stories when people buy additional coverage from another company but BMW who do not get their money back for certain repairs. Not long ago here in Hawaii someone with, I believe a 7 series, had one of those extended warranties from another company and his transmission was broken. He end up paying it himself since that other company did not want to pay for it. If he had the official BMW extended warranty then everything would've been covered.

I would just be safe and stick with BMW in this case, but that's just me



edit: do a Google search on "BMW Rick Hendrick Autoguard" to see if you can find anything related to that warranty from them, bad reviews are easy to find

extended warranty is pretty worthless if you read what it covers so i didn't get it.

The reason I have considered extended warranty is because I have been seeing a lot of HPFP failure reported online with BMW turbo engine. I am a little bit concern since this is a new engine (N20).

In my opinion don't get the Extended Warranty but DO get the tire protection program.
