I havent found an extended warranty worthwhile in most cases. Once in a while it does pay though. If you figure the cost of the warranty, most of the time your one big repair wont be as big as that, not to mention the interest over time you paid on your note. If you maintain your vehicle properly, and do not abuse it, very rarely will you have an issue out of warranty. Most cases, when there is a major mechanical failure, owner neglect, or abuse is the primary cause. And no, just because you changed your oil at 2k intervals the last two times it was done, it wont fool us,lol.
