AS you will see from my sig, I have the 5-year one.

I figured as the warranty cost the same regardless of the price of the car it more worthwhile with a fully-spec'ed GTi, than perhaps a base model. There is much more to go wrong...

I asked about extended warranty while ordering our new MK7.
TDI/TSI Man/DSG were all the same price.
Its a VW product via Allianz. 12 months unlimited Km ~$3300.
24 months $3900.

If the TDI or DSG were so bad then it would cost more that the TSI man.
Also does not cover DFP or CATs.

I said no.

There are different products, confusingly both are "official".

One is via Allianz and usually with finance. The other is a straight "bolt-on", like a check box from VW head office that just extends the standard warranty to five years from three. I took this option with our Trendline for $1,750.

Wow, they're expensive there. In the States VW has endorsed Fidelity Insurance, and I purchased their 7-year/70,000-mile/0-deductible mechanical breakdown agreement for $1548.
