All claims on a Warranty Gold contract are dealt with by Warranty Gold's administrator and paid directly to the repair facility,which you selected, by VISA or MasterCard. You therefore do not have to wait to be re-imbursed and neither does the repair facility.

I am considering buying an extended warranty for my 98 Pontiac. Has anyone out there had experiences either good or bad with the Warranty Gold services? The description sounds good, but I would like to hear from someone who has experienced dealer/repair facility response to repairs using this service,\.

On my Consumer Advocate Car Buying website at http://zim.com/ejo/gm.htm, I talk about extended warranties extensively in Chapter 6. I have a list of items there that you should look for in an extended warranty, as well as caveats, and scams pulled by many extended warranties. Just a few things to look out for are warranties that have weasel clauses saying rental is not reimbursed during standard warranties, and overheating not being covered. There's tons more in my article.

I have just learned than my Warranty Gold policy will not cover a failed idle speed control motor. It's not like this is a tire or hose or belt that you would expect to replace with normal use. Even the dealership, which sells extended warranties, was surprised that this was not a covered part. There goes $600 out of my pocket. My advice to anybody considering purchasing an extended warranty from Warranty Gold, or another company, is to be very aware of what is and what is not covered.
#8 of 1842 Regarding Idle Control Modules
Jun 11, 1998 (3:53 pm)
The Warranty Gold Diamond Plan would cover Idle Control Modules. In the Warranty Gold contract book, what is and is not covered by each plan is plainly listed, and we certainly recommend that our customers read their books carefully during their review period. It would be a rare person who knows the names of ALL the parts their vehicle consists of, and sometimes our customers choose to go with the Diamond Plan, which covers everything except certain excluded items (mainly maintenance items).

I recall asking Warranty Gold for details of
what was covered, _before_ signing up, and
the would not provide it.

I received all the detail I asked for without any problems before. I had phone and email information as well as information here. No problems as far as I'm concerned.
