I bought a 2003 Volvo v70 from a Volvo dealership in April last year.
They offered me an extended warranty with Autoprotect,
which i accepted thinking that i was dealing with a reputable garage.
They were evasive about what was covered but stated it was 'pretty much everything'
Just before the warranty expired i had a problem with my display,
and was told that i needed to replace the DIM.
The garage, MR Kings of Halesworth Suffolk first said that Autoprotect would not pay
because they had only diagnosed the fault a few days after the warranty had expired,
though i had informed them of it weeks beforehand.
When it became clear that i would take this further they changed their tune,
and said instead that the warranty did not cover the dash instruments.
I have spoken to a number of garages about this,
and all express the view that such a fault should be covered.
I have also learnt that this fault is systemic with this particular model,
and is bound to occur, although Kings service manager described it as 'very rare'.
I am resigned to the fact that i have been completely shafted,
both by Kings and by Autoprotect, but would like to post this as a warning to anybody to trust neither
