#18264 of 32216 extended warranty questions?
Nov 13, 2007 (6:16 pm)
i have owned many hondas including a 2006 EXL i4 that i just sold to be able to buy a 2008 accord EX-L V6 which now has 80 miles on it. I have never needed any major repairs that would have been covered by an extended warranty. i know i have 6,000 miles to decide if i want to buy the extended warranty. from posters on this site i have printed the prices from www.bernadi and my honda warranty saccuco honda. there prices are the same and were what my selling dealer said were there costs. the selling dealer were asking over twice the internet prices.
has anyone found a lower price for the honda care extended warranty? has anyone run the numbers to determine if there is a economic advantage to one plan yrs and miles vs another. i am 72 and retired and probably driving less then 5,000/ year . in fact this may be my last car.

Yes, try Castle Honda in Morton Grove. I just got a new car there. Very good experience. The sales guy even helped me move my old car home at 9PM If you need the sales guy's info, you may email me at yuanf99yahoo.com

Congratulations Papa ! You must be another "Accord man". I did buy extended warranty for my Accord hybrid '05. I plan to buy the '08 V6 sedan EX-L w/ navi soon.

Just my thought: Try 22200 OTD. Good luck.

Dear Papa 7435:
How do you like your brand-new V6 '08 as to:
1- Variable Cyclinder Management (VCM)
2- Road noise
3- Transmission smoothness when it shifts up and down for changing speeds.
4- Navi (Is it 100% voice activate)?
You bought the top Accord you may want to drive /travel more. One only highly appreciates the Accord on long non-stop trips.

I have not seen any report finding a lower extended warranty price than at the two dealers you named.
I got the numbers from one of the sites so I could do a comparison. Since you only drive 5,000 per year, your factory warranty will run out in 3 years. So the extended warranty is basically paying for time beyond 3 years. I pulled the lowest miles from each time frame and the cost per additional year of coverage is as follows:
5 year 60K $305. Cost per additional year of coverage: $152.50
6 year 80K $590. Cost per additional year of coverage: $197
7 year 80K $635. Cost per additional year of coverage: $158.75
8 year 100K $895. Cost per additional year of coverage: $179
So based on your driving situation where mileage isn't as important, it looks like the best values are the 5 year and 7 year.

This forum was very helpful as I was preparing to purchase a new car. Yesterday (11/13) I purchased a Burgandy LX from Crown Honda at Southpoint in Durham, NC
Here is the deal I got:
Processing Fee: $399
Any thoughts? The transmission on our only car failed last week, so we were under some time pressure. Thanks again for all that contributed to this forum

Auto or manual?
The $399 processing fee is quite high.
Actually it's a $350 rip off as some states set the cap at $50.
But, overall, the price looks OK...and good luck and happy driving.
