    Something I don't agree with is traders giving third party warranties starting on the day they sell the car, To me it screams out that they are trying to shirk their responsibilities if something goes wrong in the first 6 months and I have heard people say that within the first 6 months they have been told they had to pay because it is not covered by the third party warranty.

    dont belive a word they say, just lied through there teeth to get out of paying.
    Not worth a penny.
    Your better off getting an AA inspection and getting the dealer to pay for that instaed off the warrenty.
    I'll never use the RAC again for anything.

    Had platinum cover off dealer when purchased vehicle. Problem with alternator belt took to main dealer as most independants would not do warranty work. Quoting difficult to manage/settle etc. Main dealer completed repair and was suprised that was covered and stated must be GOOD COVER. Had option to RENEW cover for futher 12 months, when original expired. Which I took after 'good experience'.
    Unfortunately had to take in for further repair. To be told by garage not covered. As cover dropped from platinum to gold on renewal. No mention of such in all blurb. so feel elated to be conned by a further member of , RIP OFF BRITAIN!!!!!
    Thought would get better service from RAC, Rip off All Customers. Trying to get a response also waste off time.
    DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON ANYTHING RAC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Default Have I a warrenty

    Hi RAC, I paid for a warranty with a car bought from a dealer in June. I have not recieved any policy number, terms etc from the RAC. How can I check the dearler has initailised the policy? Obivously if I ask the dealer he will say yes, so would like to check with the RAC.

    If there is an extra warranty that came with your car, there would be some paper work for it in amongst the rest of the cars papers, good luck.

    I think if you look at the AA inspection terms and conditions, you have little, or no comeback should the inspector not find anything wrong but you find trouble later.

    The law says the dealer has to cover the car for six months as part of the selling price; this covers more than the manufacturer’s new car guarantee. I would not bother with the RAC warranty. If a dealer were to start to sell me a third party warranty on a car I was interested in, for me that would be the signal to walk away.
