Opinions on Extended Car Warranties?

26 January 2014 - 05:38 PM

So after driving my 98 Olds Intrigue for the last 12 years I finally had to put it out to pasture because it was becoming too unreliable.  I decided to buy a 2014 Kia Forte EX mainly because it had a better warranty and a few more options over the Mazda 3.


I am not a savvy negotiator. In fact, car buying is about the worst thing I can think of when I know I will be dealing with a sales person.  Anyway, I got the car for about the price I wanted but then I decided to buy an extended warranty.  At first I declined the option but he knocked about $700 off the cost and kept the monthly payment close to the original offer by adding 3 months to the financing without raising the interest rate.  I still ended up paying $1971 for what amounts to a 10 year/125,000 mile service contract that covers all parts (minus wear and tear items) including the Onboard communications and driver information display.  It also has 10 year roadside assistance and rental reimbursement.  I also get 4 free oil changes at the dealership.


I got home and started to have regrets right away since this Kia has a 5 year/60,000 limited bumper to bumper and 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty.  It also has a $0 deductible but ONLY if I take it the Selling dealer (anywhere else it is $100) and with the way I move there is a good chance I won't be here in 5-6 years.  Anyway, I have 60 days to cancel with no penalty and right now I feel like I should just go back there and do that but I dread having to deal with the sales people again.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Amazon $29.99 Xbox 360 PS3 $19.99 PC (NEW)

It looks like it has been this price for the week but I did not see any specific thread.  Anyway, I know it was not reviewed well but this is not a horrible price if you are looking to play it right away.  Free Prime Shipping.

So I was looking at used games when I saw that FF XIII-2 for the 360 was on sale for $9.99. Maybe it has been this price for awhile. http://www.bestbuy.c...tasy XIII - 2&lp=1&cp=
