I am in trying to find out if Audi offers its own extended warranty. I have read a press release somewhere they made an agreement about 2003 with the JM&A group. My local dealer (Checkered Flag Audi in Virginia Beach, VA) only offers extended warranties through them, as do all the local Checkered Flag dealerships in other brands. I have the feeling this is more because of greater profits for them than better service for the customers, but I'm kind of cynical that way. One message I took from the extended warranties discussions on Edmunds a year or two ago was to avoid third-party warranties if at all possible, due to problems with getting repairs approved, and finding places that would accept the warranties, whereas all brand dealerships would/have to accept their own brand's warranty.
UPDATE: I called the number for Audi Premium Protection (877-800-0286) as listed on Audi's website (under Contact Us), and the gentleman who answered to give information said in fact that the program labled APP was in fact supplied and administered by the JM&A Group. He was, he said, an employee of JM&A, and not Audi.
