I've been in an Agile team since last year, although most of the company i've worked for were trying to do this ever since but always moved the wrong way. My concern about Agile is that it only helps a lot whenever we are doing new products to which new things are said to be finished at a certain time unlike existing ones and recurring old bugs, it doesn't comply i think.

Any thoughts?

Agile is a philosophy that encompasses a lot of methodologies and processes. You may find different types of Agile work for different types of work. So for a development project (whether greenfield or enhancing an existing product) you may want to use Scrum, with the iterations, regular updates of progress etc. For Level 3 defect fixing, you may want to use Kanban with its emphasis on process flow, cycle time for defects etc. Do a bit of reading on different flavours.
