CA Warranty for a 99 911 C2 Coupe

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

This is my first post, i have found the forum extremely useful regarding the purchase of a used 99-03 911.

My question - is there a warranty provided in California that will cover a catastrophic failure of a 99 911 C2 coupe, the car has approx $60,000 miles and i have had it inspected. I can deal with the every day stuff, but a new engine would leave me eating cheerios for a few months.

Thanks.

There is no extra or additional warranty that covers catastrophic engine failures only for California cars. I believe there is an extra or longer warranty for some emissions equipment on California cars though. As a 10 year old car most if not all of any sort of original warranty is going to be expired. You could look into buying a aftermarket warranty if you need the peace of mind a warranty can sometimes provide.

Good Luck

Thanks for the reply - i would be looking for an aftermarket warranty. Are there any recommended companies for a car this age. Thanks.

Hi Darren,

I think i read your first post incorrectly and thought you were asking if California cars specifically included an extra or additonal factory warranty to cover catastrophic engine failures...

Anyways, I have a Repair Master, aka Warrantech extended warranty. www.warrantech.com. They have been decent so far and the warranty covers all engine internally lubricated parts, so they could be worth checking out.

Good Luck!

The front driver side brake caliper was replaced under the warranty. They seem pretty easy to deal with so far... I just did a google search on them and found mixed reviews... though the bad stuff you read on the internet about products or services often tend to be exaggerated or blown out of proportion in my opinion.
