I paid somewhere in the $1300-1400 for the Guardian Assurance one. So far they have paid out over $4,400 in repairs.
So I came out ahead.
But on my Superduty, I paid $3,400 for the extended powertrain warranty up to 150K miles. Never used it. Win some, lose some.
One other this to consider is dealer service availability. For example most of the dealers here is southeast wisconsin are way behind. Like about 4 weeks. Would be easier and faster to fix it yourself if your a good mechanic.My dealer is offering me a 60 month extended bumper to bumper warranty for $1500… with all the issues of Quality I’ve been hearing about I’m thinking it’s a pretty good buy. Thoughts?
Wow, I have a 2022 General XP G2 on order and they quoted $2999 for 60 months. I guess if it is like buying an automobile, I guess the cost is negotiable. I’ll have to see what happens when it finally arrives.My dealer is offering me a 60 month extended bumper to bumper warranty for $1500… with all the issues of Quality I’ve been hearing about I’m thinking it’s a pretty good buy.

I wound up buying it and he told me not to tell anyone how much I paid for it… lol. Said he sold it to me at cost cause of how patient and understanding I was when my machine kept getting delayed. I told him I understand that it’s out of his control and a Polaris issue so why yell at him. He said yea most people don’t understand that. They also did my break in service for free. Moral of the story… don’t be sick to the dealer. It’s not there fault Polaris is over committed.Wow, I have a 2022 General XP G2 on order and they quoted $2999 for 60 months.

Yea I’m pretty mechanically inclined snd have done everything from transmission and motor replacement to diesel injectors on a LB7 Duramax but my concerns are all the horror stories about issues due to the amount of machines being pumped out right now. Also my warranty is not through Polaris and my dealer said it’s pretty much up to the dealers mechanic to say yes it’s a wear issue or no it’s a warranty issue. They like the business so they lean towards warranty more than Polaris would. I’d never buy a Polaris warranty as I am sure they say everything is from misuse or wear.Let's see now. Paid for the 2016 General Deluxe on May 7, 1016. So that means my 60 month Polaris extended warranty has expired and it didn't pay for anything. The only possible issue was the axle that snapped between the splined hub section and the threaded axle nut section. Had to be a material flaw. Never heard back from my dealer. Figured Polaris would call it abuse.
Everything else was a "wear issue" as Polaris would call them, and I just fixed them myself.
So I've purchased a 60 month extended warranty on my RXR 800 from RPM1 and a 60 month extended warranty on my General Deluxe from Polaris.
Will I buy another one on my next machine. NO. Just not experiencing the kind of issues that warranty will cover.
And I'm an 'ol Mechanical Engineer that's been busting knuckles on mechanical equipment since age 13. So I have lots of experience figuring things out and fixing them.
