Extened Warranty?

Hello gang.

I have a 2012 x2 that I bought in March.

I just got an offer for an extende warranty protection plan and would like to hear comments.

Cost is $1500 for engine only for 3 years or $2800 for engine and accesories for 3 years.

Also, the flyer says that our boats come with 3 years warranty? I tough it was only one year.

Comments? Suggesions?

Thanks

Factory is drivetrain 3 years, rest one year. I paid 3100 for a 6-year total extended warranty which includes ballast system and video screens.

Who did you purchase your warranty from? I received the same warranty paperwork today that latin flyer did, but it is not offered through MC.

Typically extended warranties are not much more than insurabce coverage that covers 'warranty' type work. Not sure with MC, but for my truck, i have to pay a $100 deductable everytime I make a warranty claim.

It's disguised as MC. I just got mine from a June purchase So they must batch them. It came with $100 in mail in rebate coupons to cover your first 4 $25 deductibles. I looked but didn't see any t&cs for what is and is not covered. I would need to make sure ballast and all other systems are covered and that there are not too many gotchas to consider. I also thought you could decide anytime before your factory 3 was up? Can anyone confirm?

I have purchased extended warranties on a number of large items...most of the time is money flushed down the toilet. Now if I feel I should purchase an extended warranty - I am buying the wrong product. Extended warranties provide cash flow for service providers....read the fine print on how repairs will be approved... some are really tough... get a good definition what would be rejected by neglect. i.e. if the electronics would be covered if boat was stored outside...etc.

If you can afford a new MC...what repairs could you not afford...and if you are rough on your boat I would get coverage...if you're MCOCD like me I would probably avoid it. my .02...

Correct, this is the one I got.

I feel that I should NOT need an extende warranty on a product like this, but ............

If you're an early adopter..( I thank all of those who are) you are the privileged to move technology and boating experience forward...will their be problems - yes... but technology always improves over time...

I look forward to buying a 2012-2013 in about 10 years... .

If you think you feel you need an extended warranty then get it. MC's are cool as well as some other top tier manufacturers. I wish I was able to buy new...just not in the cards... I have too much fun workin' on the mature ladies..

From an automotive standpoint...if I bought something with all new technology - I would probably get an extended warranty. I am a tech guy (computer science undergrad) - so I know how goofy software and circuits can get - especially if they include new integrated circuits..

The extended warranty has been discussed in the past so you can find more information by searching the threads. See http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/show...ended+warranty. Also other threads by searching "extended warranty". If it is the same as I have from FPC and it sounds like it is, it covers a lot of extra items in the boat.

I had wiring from the fuel pump to the harnest go bad. Covered parts and labor to the tune of a$200. Also an item like the Transducer (speed paddle wheel, water temp and depth) would set you back about $300. I had one of those go but it was covered under the orignal warranty. I also figured that if I decide to sell the boat after three years I can advertise that it is under an additional 3 year warranty.

In the thread listed above it mentioned talking with your dealer to see if they can get it cheaper - good advice. The should also have a brochure listing what is covered on a Mastercraft boat. My service agreement lists that the mastercraft package was included in the cost.
