I'm a believer in extended warranty, principally because I can find things wrong at 95k miles and get the dealer to fix them...

You need to weight buying it now versus later. The diffrence is $100-200 between buying at purchase and waiting for 36k. What is the interest for 3 years on $1100 -1500?

there is no 'list price' on extended warranties- the finance person just sizes up the lamb, er customer, and picks a number.

$1525 is what a 7/100k sells for at 2 YEARS after you buy. You should be able to trim 150-175 off that- give www.acurawarranty.com a try (it is springfield acura in NJ)

Even if you want to buy in your state, call around on the phone to get the best price. Don't give them the whole story, ask to speak to the 'finance manager' directly, simply ask for a quote for exactly what you want- ideally you'll find someone willing to make 200-300 on a 10 minute phone call - credit card, mail the paperwork.

wpf-

Springfield must have raised their prices since I got a quote- the 1525/1750 was for a 24month purchase (ie buying the warranty two years after purchase, not when new) the 'new' plans were cheaper...

I like the zero deduct, just because you can bring it in for any little problem instead of lumping your visits. Still, my personal threshold would be around 100-150, or two to three visits. $225 seems a bit high.

(I bought a F250 PSD 4x4 last year, along with a factory warranty. But my brother-in-law is the GM for the Ford dealership... there is A LOT of profit in those puppies.)
