My Vitara will soon be coming up to 3 years old so new car warranty will come to an end. Anyone any experience of extending it with Suzuki?

It can be quite expensive through suzuki. I’m going out on a limb here and I’m going to say you won’t need it. The things and bomb proof, work out what the policy will cost in total for the year (expect £200+) and ask yourself, “will I have £x worth of failures this year).
An unanswerable question, yes. Alas, I don’t think you will.

It is of course a lottery when extending, however should anything go wrong with something like the allgrip system then where do you go ? Its unlikely that back street Bill will be able to sort it out, and just a few hours at a Suzuki dealer will soon suck up the couple of hundred you pay for the extension . This is not just a Suzuki thing . With all new cars relying on complex technology it can be a daunting prospect to be without a warranty package. If I don't change at 3 years, then I will look at the available packages just for peace of mind.
 Sods law says if you buy one then nothing will go wrong.
Try going on the Suzuki website and get a quote, there are independent companies offering warranties but caution should be taken with these.

Just to follow up - taken out Suzuki comprehensive extended warranty plus Suzuki assistance for 12 months @ £250.00. Costs less for 2 wheel drive! Decided it was worth it for peace of mind especially after being quoted
£450.00 via CSMA just for warranty.

That's a good price, mine is 3 years old in April, undecided whether to change or not, but would need them to sort out my wind whistle beforehand as looks like anything door or window seal wise wouldn't be covered. And the brake noise I have gave up on as they just say it's a characteristic of the car or still bedding in !, I know I've only done 13000 miles but sounds like a car with worn brake pads.

Edit, good God just looked on Suzuki web site and an Allgrip SZ5 auto like mine is £26449, I paid £22500 all in with rugged pack, rear spoiler, arm rest inc fitting and over mats and paint protection which was all about £1400 or so of extras. That would take the price up to around £28k Shocked

Just had a quote from Suzuki for extended warranty for our 1.6SZ5 Allgrip auto and comes out at £187 which isn't too bad. Wife was badgering me to replace it for a new one but will be around £12-13k to change for one similar and the differences are so minimal and ours has only done 14000 miles so cannot see the point. Just a bit of dilemma on the third year service as had it done at Suzuki whilst under warranty but I usually get my friend who owns a reputable garage to do my cars with genuine parts but unsure how this would lie with a Suzuki warranty claim. I know it shouldn't affect a claim but they might try and wrangle out of it.

When I bought our Suzuki in September 2016 I took out a five year Gap cover with ALA, (not through the dealership)  yesterday I had an e-mail from ALA offering me three years of extended warranty cover with the option of built in RAC recovery if required, current mileage is 31,000 on SZ5 Turbo diesel Allgrip.
They are offering their Platinum Plus warranty from the RAC with a claim limit of £13,075 (I assume that will drop by the day until the end of the contract) as the vehicle devalues, the premium for the three years is £647.90 and they say they will not be beaten on price, add in the roadside and recovery if required for an additional £193 total £841.70 or £280.56  a year.
Has anybody used anything similar ? the servicing doesn`t need to be done at a dealership but how can an independent guarantee to follow the schedule to the letter without dealer level diagnostic kit for example, a tricky one if things get difficult.
When I worked in the trade (for an independent) we would not touch warranty work because of all the hassle with getting paid, diagnostic work not included under warranty, customer had to pay for that first, I think this scheme has a limit of £50 for diagnostics which in my opinion would go nowhere, (I don`t mean just plugging in a scanner but proper diagnostic work with an oscilloscope if on electrical work), I will have a good look at the small print, the words "sudden and unforseen " seem to crop up too many times for my liking but that aside, the complexity of modern vehicles could easily run away with a lot of money over the next three years, decisions , decisions.
If anyone cares to take a look at the ALA website for this offer, I would be interested to hear their views, I did a few checks and prices from other providers were pretty eye watering.

I bought the Vitara I have now in February, 2020, the dealers sold me and set up a monthly direct debit of £18, that covers each years service and will also if kept up include a lifetime warranty with the dealers.
