I would be very cautious about buying a "service contract". This is a warranty that covers repairs for your car after the manufacturers warranty expires.I bought a service contract from Jack Daniels Audi in NJ from Zurich Insurance. I was promised that "anyone" would accept it and do the repairs with only a $100 deductible due at the time of service.I was also told they "were the Gold Standard of warranty companies."I had heard the name before, and thought it was worth it. So far, two Audi dealers refused to accept the warranty and insisted that I pay up-front for any repairs, and then try to get re-imbursed.The dealer that sold me the service contract, Jack Daniels wasn't going to accept the warranty they sold me until I complained to the management. I cancelled the contract, lost $600 in 8 months, and filed a complaint with Audi, the Attorney General for NJ, and the Bergen County Office of Consumer Affairs.Check first before you get one of these things. I have also found out that this dealership sold two cars to people that were Audi Certified, but in fact had been in accidents, and it was reported on Carfax. The dealer never told the customers. Therefore, even the Certified cars may be suspect. Beware.
