#3839 of 3848 Extended Warranty
Nov 18, 2013 (9:42 am)
Also another question...is it really worthwhile to buy the extended warranty right away? Why not wait until closer to the 3 year/36 month? Sorry for all of my questions!

I would prefer that my Honda be taken to a Honda dealer for warranty work. Simply because the parts used would be HONDA parts. Also the guy working on my Honda has a giant source of tech support through the Honda factory.
Don't know how well the ASE guy and HONDA may or may not communicate.
And how "Expert" is that ASE mechanic with the Honda?
What is the cost difference between Fidelity and Honda Care through one of the ON LINE dealers mentioned here?

Kip, the Fidelity plan is $650 more than one of the dealers listed online for a 8 year/100K no deductible warranty. (I keep my cars for a long time and don't put on a lot of miles.)
And should I even buy it now?
Thanks for your quick response.

Elsie - my recommendation would be Hondacare - thinking along the same lines as kip. If you purchase after 6 months or 6000 miles, the pricing is higher.

If you're fine with Fidelity then keep it or if you want to save $650 then get HC instead -- to me it doesn't make sense to pay more for an aftermarket warranty when you can get an OEM warranty w/ OEM parts for a cheaper price (if you don't like your local dealer then check online reviews of other dealers in your area)
As I mentioned in my previous post, you'll get lower pricing if you buy within 6mo/6k mi -- after that the price will go up some. Hard to say exactly what the price will be if you wait until 3yr/36k mi, but you can try getting a warranty quote for a 3 yr old Honda with 35k mi so you have a ballpark idea of the difference

This is easy...get the Hondacare and be done with it! Dump the other company like...NOW!!!

Thanks for your advice. I went back to the dealer and canceled it; it really wasn't as bad an experience as I thought it would be. I had my numbers ready this time when he asked what I had been quoted for HondaCare. It also probably helped that I talked to our salesman, and he talked to the manager and F/I man before I got there.
This has been a great site to check for info. I was fully prepared with what to pay for a vehicle and even got a better price than even the lowest bar on TrueCar, but I had not researched the extended warranty and prices. Now I know!! I hope others will look here first too. Thanks again!
#3847 of 3848 Extended warranty in NY

I live in NY and just purchased a 2014 Honda Odyssesy. Of couse the finance manager tried to sell me an extended warranty 8 years/ 120K for $2200. After I told the price is too high, he came back with $1800. My question is, can I purchase Honda Care extended warranty from any online dealer (saccucci.com, collegehillshonda.com) or is it only a dealer in NY?
