    Default 2nd BEST warranty?

    I am getting conflicting information from dealers and online. So I also called BRP this morning (even more confusing).

    I have been told that I can get an additional 36 month BEST warranty when my current 36 month BEST is about to expire? So I asked my local dealer (absolute confusion). Online info is more confusion, so I called BRP customer service. I was told that he has never seen it and in rare cases a dealer can ask BRP to add a year to the BEST warranty if it had not been more than 5 years old (he said some original warranties were only 1 year). When I asked if I could talk to someone who had actual knowledge, he just kept repeating that he had never seen it done but that he did not have a lot of knowledge of the BEST warranty?

    So has anyone got a second or more BEST warranty when their first BEST warranty was about to expire?

    The most I have seen offered with best is five years. The original two years with the purchase of the the product, and up to three years with the Best.

    Interesting that BRP could not give you positive information. Must have been the supervisors day off.

    I e-mailed BRP-Cares. That was a waist of time. They referred me to a dealer for answers. LOL Tom
    Baloo is my name. Spyders are my game. Well, it's a doo-bah-dee-doo, yes, it's a doo-bah-dee-doo, I mean a doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee-dee-doo. And, well, now. Ha ha! What have we here?

    To answer your question many spyder owners have purchased additional years for the BEST warranty. As ARtraveler stated the most you can get is a total of 5 years. Your original plus whatever adds to 5 years. I purchase an additional 2 years to bring mine up to a total of 5 years. You must purchase the additional years before the original warranty expires.
    You can purchase the additional warranty from any dealer. Berts Mega Mass (a spyderlover sponsor) has offered the best prices. Happy shopping!

    Correctly stated above. All BRP products run the same way BEST (SxS, sea doo, skidoo, 4 wheelers and spyder) formula which is a total of 5 years. How you do it is up to you. I ordered a sled once and got 2 years total when ordered, then bought the BEST warranty for 2 more so a total of 4 years. Just as it was about to expire the second time (3.5 years after purchase) I was able to buy 1 more year to do warrenty work on a busted skid. The BEST warrenty hadn’t run out yet. You are allowed a TOTAL of 5 years. Depending on the machine some come with 1 year, other 18 months, other 2 years. But those years are subtracted from 5 years TOTAL! Been that way since I bough BRP stuff back in the 90’s.

    As stated above, you can get up to a total of 5 years warranty coverage from the date the vehicle was 1st put into service (sold). But, I think things may have changed for the new 2020 models. My buddy just bought a 2020 RTL last week and got a total 7 years warranty. He said it cost him an extra $1,300.00 I'm not positive, but pretty sure it is the BEST warranty. I'll see him tomorrow and find out for sure..... Jim

    If he paid $1300 for 5 or 6 additional years depending on what they come with THATS a good deal! Usually its $600-$800 around here for 3 years on sleds, a bit more on 4 wheelers,SXS and Spyders but not much more. I’d take that deal. 7 years is a long time. That’s probably the most I’d ever keep anything before trading.

    Just make sure the dealer is talking BEST as there are some options for aftermarket plans, and I believe I saw some with a slightly longer duration. I got the BEST warranty as I understand some of the aftermarket plans don't work at every dealership, but BEST is supposedly accepted everywhere. Read the fine print.

    BEST is offered by BRP and honored by all BRP dealers--regardless of which dealer purchased from.

    Other warranties (aftermarket)...will have terms that may vary from BEST.

    I asked my friend about his warranty today. He did not get the BEST extension. His bike came with the standard BRP 2 year warranty and he purchased an additional 5 years beyond that from the dealer. It is an aftermarket company. In order to get it he was required to purchase it at the time he bought the bike. I didn't get into other details with him because he is happy and it is non of my business. But, we did agree, that at our age, (in our 70s) having 7 years of warranty is just like having a "Lifetime Warranty"..... Jim
