Yes another extended warranty problem. Our backup camera went out, contacted the warranty company, was told to take it in for service, it was covered. Now when the service people contacted the warranty company with an estimate, yes not covered. Has anyone else had issues with this company, I have talked to other Winnie owners that have the same policy and have not used it. I am going to my dealer that sold the policy and see what they have to say. Thanks and be safe.

Billy S, HERE is the Denver Better Business Bureau brief report on First Warranty. They get a satisfactory rating which I think is the best.

I read about people that have good luck with extended warranties but I've never meet anyone in real life that has heard anything but "that's not covered". Or as my auto insurance agents claims adjuster says "you've got the WDP inclusion on your policy" (We Don't Pay). Funny guy.

Reccomendations?? Which extended warranty company provides the best policy and service based on actual claim experience?

I'm still under my new coach policy but looking for something to cover several more years.

I agree TX, we just purchased a 7/100 policy from them. They are backed by some very strong companies.

The last two warranties i purchased...one from warranty gold and the other national warranty both went bankrupt and I never even got a chance to make one claim. I was a sucker...

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by Jestme13:

If you loose the insurance company has made a killin' including the odds they give themselves with those "not covered clauses" we're reading about. I had a "Warranty Gold" policy - "Never again!"

We've spoken about extended warranties at length. Take the same $3245.00 US dollars and put it in a high yield savings account, that's what they do, and sit back and wait for something to break "AFTER" you are out of warranty three years from now.

Warranty Experts give that same money back to you if you do not ever use it, there is no other company does that. Then if there is a problem, most like you will spend more than $3200 for a visit specially with the prices the dealerships charge per hour....Best Warranty....
Don't think that its a warranty, thinks that its insurance. If you ever look at what they cover, they cover more than the majority of the extended warranties that are available. If you don't have it or get it, I am sure you will be telling us on this same forum.

DriVer has it right, it's a lose/lose proposition. The salesman that sold you the policy gets a commission,the dealership gets their cut, then the warranty issuer has their advertising expenses, administrative expenses, operating expenses, warranty payment expenses,etc., then of course, they make a decent profit. So, you as the buyer of the warranty (actually a service contract), stand to get --not much. Sure there are a few winners in the "service contract" lottery, but as a group, you lose.

Does it not boil down to how much $$ you are paying for a good 7 year service contract? Instead of $3200 would you buy it for $32. Not just yes (as LBJ used to say), but ****, yes. Would you buy it for $320. Probably. I would. How about $800? Who cares how your premium is divided up as long as you get a good contract at a good price.

Homeowner's insurance is $500 a year, or more, times 7 years means you are paying $3500, about the same as a RV policy. Auto insurance means your vehicle will be fixed after an accident. Another $500 a year down the drain. Umbrella policy? Not worth it until you need it. Maybe you will never need it. More $$ down the drain. EQ insurance? A waste of $$.

If you can afford a contract and like the peace of mind it provides, go for it.
