Warranty cost

Hi everyone, just purchasing my first Fiat ,a sixteen plate Panda cross, the sales man gives me the impression that to transfer the remaining warranty will incur a financial transaction, is this A, true B. Peculiar to Fiat Or C. The way things are with warranty transfers ? Bit miffed having to possibly pay out some more wedge to make sure I will have some extra (may be unnecessary) major failure protection, has anyone else experienced this situation? Thank you in anticipation
Mike .

Re: Warranty cost

Just tell the salesman that you purchasing the car depends on THEM paying any warranty transfer fee as they are the ones selling it. As far as i'm aware there is a fee for changing the warranty into your name.

Re: Warranty cost

3rd year warranty at dealer buying off. Admin fee around 30 to firm below if you want to sort yourself. If dealer thrown in road fund licence pointless arguing over a different 30.

Re: Warranty cost

Never heard of a fee being payable to transfer a 3rd year warranty before. If any dealer asked me for one, I'd tell them to do one.

Re: Warranty cost

I wasn't charged anything for a warranty transfer or the third year cover.

3rd year warranty transfer for used vehicles is paid for by the Fiat dealer, if non Fiat dealer selling vehicle then up to seller, but should not be paid by purchaser.
Not major wedge, around 30

Re: Warranty cost

Bought our 1 year old Panda Trekking TA up north from a Suzuki Dealer, didn't have any queries about warranty when I took it to my local Fiat Dealer in Kent for a service. They said the rear shocks were leaking and I asked them to sort out the squeaky blower fan, all done under warranty. No mention of transferring warranties.
