For all of you wondering about the cost, please see post 1. All you have to do is call Dinan and provide your Vin number and they will provide a quote based on the coverage and your mileage. The price I was quoted is exclusive to my Vin number and mileage.

Hope this helps.

Does 60/100 mean they will cover the car for 5 years past the manufacturer warranty?

I'll chime in here, but of course I am biased as this competes against what I sell so please keep that in mind (::: cough, cough, their plan SUCKS...cough, cough).

Anyhow, this is Cornerstone's standard plan, and Dinan became a selling agent and had them tweak coverage to include Dinan mods. Remember that mods have to be not only purchased from an authorized Dinan shop but also installed by one. For many people that's not a big deal, but I could see a future "Uh oh" in a claim if you did not pay attention to that clause.

The rest of it is standard Cornerstone stuff. As a warranty administrator, their reputation is not stellar. They are by no means a rip-off or anything, but certainly not in the league of Fidelity, Zurich, EasyCare (although EasyCare's reputation has dropped off a little lately), AmTrust, etc. I don't want to knock a competitor though, it always sounds like sour grapes.

If you have a heavily Dinan modified car, or plan to, and use the Dinan installer network, this plan could save you from possible hassle at claim time due to modifications to your car. I think it's a smart move for Dinan. Beyond that, apples to apples with the top tier companies, to me the adminstrator is a step down.

Yes. If you look at that attachments you will see that time starts at the time the contract takes effect, however, mileage is from 0. So 6yrs from time of contract or 100k miles from 0.

Thanks Bruce! Always appreciate your unbiased honesty.

I do plan to go heavy Dinan, so I'm considering canceling my NAC and going with Dinancare. Not 100% yet but getting there.
