#2 of 103 Extended Warranty Purchase
Apr 06, 2007 (6:48 pm)
Has anyone purchased an extended warranty, and if so, what mileage and duration, and price. I am interested in purchasing one (6yr/120K miles), but have seem many different prices. Thanks for your feedback.

I purchased one when I bought the car from the dealer.
He wanted an unbelievable 2500 to start
I paid 1200 for the 5 year/100k warranty. Glad I did. With all the tech stuff on this vehicle even one repair after 50 k would likely cost 1k plus especially if it was a problem with the SHAWD or the Navi or something.
And the warranty is transferable which should help resale.
#4 of 103 Time to consider extended warranty?

Hi, wanted to revive some discussion regarding when to get the extended warranty, if ever. Is the same cost to get it any time during the standard warranty period? Is there any advantage whatsoever to get it during the vehicle purchase besides being able to finance it?

Just bought an MDX, and am thinking about the extended warranty. I had an American car as my last vehicle, and had LOTS of costly repairs both while the car was under warranty, and after the warranty expired (which was 36,000 miles - the car was a 2001). I am hoping the Acura will not have these kind of problems. However, all of the electrical gadgetry makes me wonder whether I should extend the bumper to bumper from 4 yrs to 7 yrs. I plan on keeping this car until it has 100,000 miles.
Is the warranty something that is price negotiable? Can you get a warranty at a different dealer if it is the Honda Motorcars warranty? Hondacuraworld.com has great deals on the extended warranty, and they said I could use it at any Acura dealer. My dealer said that the full cost of the warranty is refundable if no claims are ever used on it. I did not ask hondacuraworld if they have the same guarantee.

If anyone is interested, hondaacuraworld.com has very reasonable prices on the extended warranties. Just need to have less than 6K miles on the ODO. The dealer I'm buying my MDX from said they can't give it to me ($0 deductible, 100K miles) for the price hondaacuraworld is selling for.

appears as though I'm headed for a purchase of an MDX Sport with Sport Running Boards and Roof Rack.
I was quoted an extended warranty from the dealer $2,250,00.
Did not take it. I found one for 100K miles fro $1,150,00..
I have a full 60 day time line to refuse it and get a full refund and have 30 days to secure it after I buy the MDX.

It's July 1... I did make the purchase of the MDX Sport and a few added accessories.. I will be in contact with the extended warranty co. and I'll be good to go. Also,
When you are buying the Acura MDX or any other be keenly aware of the intentions of your finance guy to sell you the extended warranty. He may make you feel foolish and inform you that the deal a very good one and it only will be offered on that day.
What you may choose to consider that is not based on the "that day type purchase" is the maintenance agreement.
It will cost you some money to maintain your new car thru 55K mi. Do the bathe and look on the KBB site where you can determine the cost of you car over a 5 year period. The contract that will offer is about $1300.00. Do you math and consider it.
#10 of 103 MDX Extended Warranty
Jul 02, 2007 (7:26 am)
I purchased an '07 MDX Tech on Saturday. The dealer offered an extended warranty of 7 years/100,000 miles, up from factory warranty of 4/50,000. The cost was ~$2,200. The dealer noted that if a claim was never made against the extended warranty, my money would be refunded in full. What are people's thoughts on the warranty as purchased from dealer and on the money-back option?
