sorry to be so dense, but have a few questions (i've searched and read other posts here but none seem to fully answer).
a little context first -- i will be taking delivery on a 2020 CPO XC90 with a little over 11k miles in a few days and am thrilled...it is my understanding that a CPO warranty is 5 years/unlimited miles. so with the first sale reported in November of 2019, the warranty should expire in November 2024? I plan to keep the car 5-8 years and drive on average 5k per year. so by the time I sell it, it would have about 40-50k max on it.
now the questions:
1. Volvo states that the CPO warranty "covers every part of the vehicle that is not excluded.." where can i find the list of exclusions?
2. For what reasons would you recommend(or not) the purchase of an extended warranty (Gold or Platinum)? Might it be because the payback will be worth it due to the the extent/expense of problems likely to occur over the 5-8 years of my ownership. i understand that this needs to be purchased within 30 days of buying the car (preferably from Steingold, I gather from the discussions here).
3. I'm confused about the pre-paid maintenance -- is this just prepaying the cost for the 40k through 100k standard factory recommended service operations? (I think 10k-30k service operations are complimentary).
4. How does the purchase of an extended warranty complement or overlap or not with that of pre-paid maintenance?
much thanks to all in advance for your help and wisdom.
I would have probably asked these questions of the salesman at the dealer where I am purchasing from, were it not that he seems intent on speaking as little as possible, appearing lackadaisical and barely interested in such a rote and mundane transaction. Granted he's been selling Volvo's since '94 so maybe he's just so tiiirrreeeedd.
