Is an extended warranty for £175 good value for money?

I have a SEAT Leon nearing the end of its warranty period. SEAT is offering an ‘all components’ cover with zero excess for £175. Do you think this is good value for money?

SEAT Leons aren't known to be particularly unreliable but, for £175, that sounds like a very tempting deal. It's probably worth that for peace of mind alone. Shop around for aftermarket warranties, too, but check the terms and conditions carefully so you can compare like for like.

Big improvements in quality and refinement over previous Leon. Great to drive with sharp handling. Good value. Shares same base as latest A3 and Golf.
