Experience with Rout 66 Warranty

I reluctantly purchased this warranty several years ago as I approached 50,000 (Route, not Rout!). I had to open a credit union account for $5.00, and paid @ $2,500.

Peace of mind with the N63 engine, right?

This spring, my drivers side airbag light went on. It was ultimately a clock spring and cost $2,300 to replace/repair. Route 66 declined coverage as they don't cover restraint systems. When I explained what the part was and sent them the diagram my SA provided, they fully paid.

More recently, dealer noticed a variety of hoses (oil and turbo) were leaking pretty badly. I also had a front door lock actuator that was starting to go and throw the fuse. Total for all of this was $7,000!!

At this point, my car is maybe only worth $25,000. I might have dumped the car (which I don't want to do - I still really enjoy the ride). But Route 66 didn't bat an eye and all I paid was some tax, less than $200.

I'm pretty impressed by the company and awfully pleased with my "investment."

Your mileage may vary.

It is good to hear positive sides of things.
Also there are different levels of coverage so maybe you list which you have.

I purchased the extended warranty, 60 months, 100,000 miles.

The version is apparently called the "Easy Street."

Cute, huh?

I bought it in September 2016, and actually paid $2,748 (just looked it up).

I just bought the same policy for my 2016 550i for $2300 (under 40k and still under factory warranty). Hope I dont have to use it, but good to know they are covering the issues you are seeing.
