This week proved that my faith was well founded.
MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) sensor is knackered and at first I tried a replacement from JDC which, through no fault of John's, turned out to be worse than the one it replaced.
I wasn't looking forward to having to shell out the better part of Ã‚Â£300 on the OEM item but decided to bite the bullet. Apparently, Pierburg don't list a MAF sensor for our cars anymore
Just on a whim I phoned Warrantyworks and asked if the MAF sensor was covered, not thinking for a moment that it would be as they are known to be a problem and would presumably be considered a consumable.
I was therefore pleasantly surprised when I was told that it is covered and to go ahead and have it replaced
The cost of the MAF sensor has recouped the cost of my 24 month warranty so I think I'll be considering the same again in February 2012 when it becomes due for renewal.
Tony, my mechanic, is always amazed at the way Warrantyworks play the game when he gets to do warranty jobs, not just for me but for several of his customers.
In fact, some time ago, when one of my rear coil springs broke, they told Tony to replace both sides "as a precaution". That sounded pretty fair to me.
So, amid horror stories by the dozen about dodgy warranties, I present to you, "the good guys"
