I assume you are talking about Mercury Insurance Group's Mechanical Breakdown Protection, which I believe is marketing exclusively through Independent Agents. My suggestion would be to call various agents and get quotes. Make sure they are licensed in Florida.
Manufacturers extended warranty's are different. They generally have the same list price in all states, but there is a considerable markup. It is up to each individual dealer to set his selling price, be it MSRP or discounted. It really has nothing to do with what state the dealer is in.

Yes, that is the policy which I am considering.
Is there a reason that I should buy it from a Florida agent? What is the advantage?
I know that I have to pay 7% sales tax in FL. If I buy it out of state, wouldn't I be able to save tax?

The info from other Florida residents suggests that Florida does not allow entities outside Florida to sell insurance products to their residents..
For instance, dealers that sell Honda Care warranties will not sell to Florida residents (excepting Florida dealers, of course)..
Hope that helps,

I have run across a car buying website called carwoo. I would like to start a new thread to ask people if they have used it and what their experiences have been. Thanks
