Rather than start a new thread, just wanted to give an update on my experience with the LR extended warranty on my 2011. It's been less than a year and it has already paid out twice over what I paid for the warranty.

Short version: soft brakes (even after multiple pressure bleeds), slight supercharger whine at highway speeds = replacing brake master cylinder (internal valve leak), supercharger pulley coupler replacement, timing belt guide pins tsb (discussed plenty on these forums).

Warranty is paying close to $6k, including the 2016 jag xf loaner I have.

Even better, I requested a front/rear diff and transfer fluid change as a maintenance item (LR scheduled for 75k interval but I'm doing it at 55k), and my SA accidentally put the fluids on the warranty repair bill which was approved. So I'm just paying labor for that.

This is all in addition to the $1500 the warranty has already covered for previous dealer visits (replaced drive shaft and other various bits).

So is the extended warranty worth it? From my perspective, absolutely. Even with a build date of Dec 2011, I had still had a lot of early build quality issues.

So I'm starting my search for an extended warranty for my 2013 sport. I got a quote for the Land Rover Extended warranty, 4 years from now or 75,000 miles which is basically 3 extra years. Around $2200 from one dealer and around $3600 from another dealer. Not sure how there could be such a price difference. One dealer also has an Allstate extended warranty plan which seems pretty close to the Land Rover one, but Allstate offers some more years and milage for a little more money. Anyone have experience with the Allstate. I'm leaning towards the Land Rover from what I read on here. Both are exclusionary. Couple things worry me when reading the exclusions in Land Rover one. Illumination for example isn't included, bulds, HID etc. I understand a bulb not being covered, but what if the adaptive headlight stops working? Will they try to say that's part of illumination? Also mentions external mirrors not covered. Does this mean if the mirror stops folding in or stops dipping in reverse, that it's not covered? Also not sure if Bushings and parts like that are covered? Just a few of my concerns. Would love any first hand experience comments.

Thanks

Stick with the Land Rover one, it'll be accepted without hassle at any LR dealer with $0 deductible. Also includes LR roadside assistance (which I've used once and thought it was great) and loaner car. And yes, prices vary A LOT from dealer to dealer. I live in Miami but bought the warranty from the LR dealer beside my parents home in Houston.

There will always be things not included, but the LR warranty is the most inclusive you could possibly get. Yes, bushings are covered under the LR extended warranty (but surprisingly not under the CPO warranty). I discussed this before but just to reiterate, I think it's better to buy a used LR still under factory warranty then purchasing the extended warranty INSTEAD of buying a CPO and paying markup for that warranty.

Thanks!! As I mentioned, I'm definitely leaning towards Land Rover warranty.

My driver's side folding mirror was covered. Almost $1000 repair covered to get a stupid mirror to fold in and out. I also had control arm bushings covered. I have the Land Rover extended warranty.

I didn't get a straight answer from the dealer on this question... So the quotes they gave me are 4 years from today, which is an extra 3 years added to my warranty since I still have a year remaining. If I wait another year before I buy the warranty, is it 4 years from that date? Which gains me an extra year if I wait. I realize the cost may go up, but they did mention the cost probably wouldn't go up all that much do to my low milage. Anyone know how this works?

You will get an extra year if you wait. However, you must purchase it 30 days before your factory warranty expires and the quote is only good for 30 days. So the quote they give you today may not be the same a year from now. There is a mark up on these warranties so don't be afraid to negotiate.

this is all confusing to me because the product isn't apples to apples from dealer to dealer. some dealers offer 60 month extension for my vehicle (2.8 years old right now; so my warranty would expire 5 years from today), some will only offer 48 month.

i've been told by more than one that the 60 month extension will not be offered for my vehicle (2014 LR SC purchased Oct 2013) AFTER Dec 31 of this year. So sounds like the best thing to do, in my case, is to wait till then and buy the 60 month.

So figure out what that threshold is for when it's too late to buy a 60 month extension, then find a dealer that sells that product at a price you find fair.

like others touched on, while fluctuations between what dealers sell these at. some markets bear a lot more than others, apparently.
