this is a 7 yr from original in service date warranty, I believe. Check pricing on Bernardi warranty.

Do you know what are the difference to purchase warranty from Acura dealer and Bernardi which all other people refer to? I purchased from dealer and found price way higher than Bernardi and thinking about to cancel it. Also, Do you know the full reimbursement guarantee if you don't have any claim during the extended warranty period. This is what my dealer to got me and sale to me for so call "win-win". Please help...will call to cancel if no hurt to buy warrant to close to warranty period end.

My understanding is that the full reimbursement is a sales ploy for the dealer's own warranty and is not a feature of Acura Care. AFAIK, once you buy Acura Care, there is no refund whether you ever use it or not.

Thanks much. I did verify from Acura Care and got the same answer.
It's dealer's sale marketing tool. It's also some kind of dealer incentive. But I am wondering whoever could get the money back is really rare and looks like a long process. Need Acura to issue comformation of non claim letter which sounds Acura Care didn't deal with that before. I will try to cancel service contract from dealer.

You may be out of luck...
I tried entering your info at the Bernardi warranty website and the car has too many miles. There are other companies though...

Bernardi is shut down as of 11/1/09, as I tried. Print out the selected warranty information you want from their web site for your particular vehicle. Take it to the Honda dealer(s) and deal with them on the price before 11/1/09. If they will not be somewhat competitive, go to Bernardi. I just did so with two Acura Dealers, who almost doubled the cost initially.
Apparently, when dealerships in general cannot sell vehicles or make enough profit on the selling vehicles, they stoop to the lowest possible level to get into one's wallet. Acura, Honda, makes no difference. Even when you have a long term servicing relationship with them.

Call several Acura dealers, they can sell you the Acura Care warranty if they want. However, the price may be prohibitive. They have to make a buck off you even if you will use their service facility down the road.

Thanks for suggestion. I did purchase extended warranty from my dealer when I buy my MDX. I cancel it when I found from this site mentioned Bernardi. It is the best price and almost $800 cheaper than my dealer. I just found out Hohda requested customer to pay additional $135 for whom chaneled warranty before from Bernardi website. But Bernadi mentione don't worry because their price is still much better after this additional fee. Anyone know if this fee is true? I did call Acura before, they didn't mention it if I purchase again after I cancel it.
