That’s why when you lay out all the repair pay outs Warrantywise makes, you can see why so many of our customers swear by our service. It’s not just supercars who have expensive repair bills, but the fact that we also have the likes of Mercedes and Land Rover in our 2017 pay outs just goes to show that all cars have the potential to go wrong.
