    Hi, looking to buy an S4 and wanted to get y'all's opinion on the service contract, should I just go ahead and get it or just wing it?

    I've always been told that extended warranties really only benefit the company offering them. How many miles on the car? Regular service history? If low and yes, I'd be tempted to keep the cost of the warranty in a savings account and use when necessary. Chances are you'll save $$. Do your research and understand what parts in the car have a tendency to fail and if the car might be more vulnerable to these failures. When I inquired I was told an additional 2 years cover would cost over $3500.

    There are better deals on extended warranties. Call Troy at Toyota of Greefield, Ma. He sells Audi extended warranties, at discount compared to other dealerships. They are sold by sister Audi Dealership, Father & Sons Audi, West Springfield,Ma, I extended my original Audi warranty to almost 89kvmiles and 8 years from purchase date of the warranty till July 2024. Audi pure platinum, $100 deductible.

    The price depends on when you buy the warranty, he can explain it to you. Audi pure warranty is much cheaper, if you buy it with less than 10k miles on car. And you pay no sales tax with purchase through him

    Excellent deal, I'll give him a call and see what quote I can get. Don't put a lot of miles on my cars so warranty period is of most interest. Currently I have 31K and 8 months left on factory warranty. Extending this another 6-8 years would be perfect.
