Extended Warranty for 2000 E55 AMG

Does any one know where I could get a good extended warranty for this car, it has 29600K mls and is out of original factory warranty. I'm looking for a good company, many do not cover the AMG line. On another car 2000, E430 I got a policy from a company that went down (Warranty Gold), do not want to make the same mistake. Thank you.

Did you try the MB dealer?
I have used DFS, but they were a pain in the butt!
They were good on the first couple small claims, then dragged out any large claims, made it difficult to reach them for claim approval and used loopholes to avoid anything emissions related.
A throttle body Actuator was considered an emissions related part. Technically the whole engine is and they will dodge any claim they can. I was not impressed.

Be VERY careful with this company....they warranted my car and a claim ended up in court in a legal battle

any further details e-mail me...I will be glad to share

Unfortunately, you may be out of luck. Personally, I have never trusted an 'aftermarket' warranty company to handle claims as well as via a factory warranty.

I realize this may not help your situation, though.

Do a google search on the compnay you are investigating and make sure to check on the owners of the company as well. In several cases, I have found they are involved in litigation with people they insure....not the best bang for the buck IMO

Thank you for your information. to avoid all the problems with extended warranties, I was able to find a 2000, E55 with 14K miles under factory warranty and starmark extended warranty, I'm done looking for extended warranty companies.

Regards,
HJE
