Factory Warranty

I bought a Carfax report prior to purchasing my '01 Boxster, and it stated that my factory warranty was up in 4/04.

Today I received a letter from a company stating that my factory warranty was to expire in mid July and they would be happy to sell me an extended warranty.

Outside of calling the dealership, which I'll probably do anyway, is there a site where I can check when my factory warranty actually does expire? I need to have my driver's window repaired and a rear wheel bearing replaced and this would be a very good thing if my warranty is still in effect.

T: It seems that if you need some warranty work done..which only the dealer can do ...and you'd need to call them to get an appointment anyway. Simply have them run the VIN# while you hold and see what the 'official' date is.

Carfax and some pretend insurance company are not legal representatives of Porsche, nor liable for bogus information.

Talking

The dealer's service data base is what the service dept goes by. Technically, the clock should start on the day the car first drove out of the showroom. If it really is later than this date, perhaps your car was a loaner, rental, or demo.

The service dept is the first place to call.

I called Boardwalk Porsche and the warranty expired on 4/27/05. So Carfax was correct. Wouldn't you know it, a rear wheel bearing goes bad and the driver's door power window starts acting weird in late May.
