Cars Q&A

I have booked a Swift LDI model. I have two questions. 1- The dealer is offering me extended unlimited warranty on all mechanical parts for 4 years if I pay Rs. 10000 do you think it is advisable to extend my warranty. 2- The dealer has told me that if I get a music system for the car from outside and it is not installed properly then the warranty offered by Maruti on a new car for 2 years will not be applicable.

  • Expert Hi,

    Extended warranty will come into effect after expiry of warranty . For getting extended warranty you will have to provide history of the vehicle maintenance to ensure it was serviced regularly at authorized service centers. If everything is alright then you will get warranty on items mentioned in extended warranty broucher. Hence please go through extended warranty policy before buying. As far as extra fittments like music systems, if installed from outside ie unauthorised shops then if any problems occurs due to wrong connections etc then getting warraty will be difficult. (sometimes you may get it under goodwill claims) Hence it is always advisable to get it fitted at authorised service centers so that you will have adequate proofs for everything atleast till warranty is valid.
