Need opinion on Ally Extended Warranty

I just picked up my 2018 MB Glc300. It was used with 27K miles and got a great deal It still has 30 months or 22K miles left on MB warranty but, of course, the dealer's finance manager tried to talk me into an extended warranty. He mentioned they sell the Ally Major Guard policy and is impressed by it A 3 yr extension to the present warranty is $3900. I'm not sure If this is standard or not. I suspect a better price can be obtained but I don't know how to go about it. BTW, he also mentioned Fidelity is also good but not as good as Ally.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

GLC, Q7
The short answer is what does it cover. For instance the better ones are usually those that clearly state they extend the manufacturers standard warranty ( at least all mechanical and electrical components) with no first loss or claim limit. Then check their consumer complaint record - via social media and gov't consumer bodies.

In Australia there are a few which look OK ( eg. Redbook). The others are just a waste of money.

Check out this thread...https://mbworld.org/forums/glc-class...-warranty.html

For the price your dealer quotes, you probably can get a MB EW for about the same price.

Call a MB dealer about ELW - you bought your GLC from a GMC/Chevy dealer - of course they will tell you Ally is a great warranty - it ain't..

Do you have any experience with them to back this up?
