I was sold a Zurich Optional Service contract with purchase of a new Honda. (its just yesterday).
Should I cancel it? as many forums I read sound like this is a third party warranty. (Finance guy told me this would cover electronics as well at $0 deductible and unlimited miles of towing if required).
If I have to cancel it how do I do it? I live in CA.
Whats better Optional Service contract or EW?

I would quickly check state law (probably google) as most states have a "Buyers Remorse" law that allows cancellation of contracts withing a 3 to 7 day (or more) time period.

Zurich is one of the largest insurance companies in the world. They'll be around for a while.
But IMHO, you should cancel it and get a Honda warranty instead if you really feel the need to have one. You can search around here and find a couple of dealers that sell them pretty reasonably.
To cancel the Zurich, read the contract you signed. It's in there somewhere.
Oh and there isn't any sort of buyer's remorse law that will allow you to cancel it. That only applies to in-home sales. So read the contract and follow what it says.

Thanks robr2. Do you know (or have) the experience of dealing through Zurich than Honda's own care?

I have no experience in using any extended warranty. I purchased Honda Care for my 2000 Odyssey and didn't need to make a claim.
Now when I get a new car, I instead put $50 a month into a slush fund to use for unexpected repairs. If none are needed, it's becomes a down payment on the next car.
#3715 of 3848 TPMS system covered or not?

The TPMS light is on in my S2000. No low tire light, pressures are OK, just the TPMS light. Faulty sensor or other TPMS component? Hondacare contracts I have looked at don't exclude or include the system. "Sensors" are covered, tires and valve stems are not.

Saccucci Honda offered the $0 deductible 120k/8yr for $1295 a week or two ago. They have an offer for $50 off a warranty through Dec 31 making that warranty $1245. The next lowest quote I got was Hyannis Honda for $1270 for the same warranty. Saccucci said in their email that they expect prices to go up in 2013 $100-$200 dollars. I got my dealer to offer the warranty for $1350 which I accepted so I could add it to my financing.

Just checked both and Hyannis dropped their's $25 making it $1245 for both. As a result, is one better than the other. Any positive or negative experiences you can share?

It's the same warranty so if they are the same price now then it shouldn't matter I would think.
