Audi USA Factory Warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper repairs on breakdowns caused by flaws in design and engineering.
Audi will pay the cost to repair malfunctions on all components except normal wear items like trim, leather, brake rotors, and paint dings.
Audi engine factory warranty is also 4 years or 50,000 miles and does not continue beyond the bumper-to-bumper warranty like the coverage of many other brands.
Audi offers three options for owners who want to buy extended coverage: Platinum, Gold, and Powertrain.
What do the Audi Factory Warranty Options cover?
Platinum Audi Pure Protection Audi Platinum coverage includes repairs on breakdowns for all mechanical components except items disclosed on their exclusionary list.
Audi is one of the most expensive brands to repair so it’s no surprise to have an extensive list of excluded parts.
However, the Platinum Plan does include the most costly repairs covering the drivetrain, electrical, computer system, power group, climate control, fuel system, and more.
This F&I Tools Review concludes that 90% of attempted claims will be honored, and the Audi Platinum coverage will produce viable savings for long term owners.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
The Gold Plan includes a moderate level of covered components but is more of a roll of the dice than a protection plan.
Many repairs will be covered, but many will also be omitted like steering, navigation, audio, and high technology.
This F&I Tools Review concludes that 65% of claims will be honored at this level.
Spend the extra cost and buy the best plan, or be prepared for hit and miss performance when attempting claims.
Basic engine coverage often not worth the premium. Opt for a better plan or pass.
How much is the repair copay?
Audi USA Platinum coverage includes three options for deductible copay: $250, $100 disappearing, and $0.
The disappearing deductible is waived when owners return to the selling dealer for repairs.
The $0 copay plan and the disappearing copay plan are tempting until the comparison in upfront cost is considered. The $250 copay plan is $800 less to purchase than the disappearing plan and $1200 less than the $0 copay.
Therefore, the F&I Tools Review finds the Audi Platinum Warranty with $250 deductible to be the best bang for the buck!
