"Funny how people think a service contract should cover their maintenance..."
Repair contract is probably a more accurate description of the Subaru extended warranty.

if you didn't purchase the warranty from Joe Gingras, do you mind me askingwhere you bought? I want the GoldWarranty, 7year/100k/0 deductible warranty.
Thanksfor any help!
ps i guess some places tack on doc prep/taxes/etc. which ultimately brings the price up? Doesn't seem Joe or Mastria was going to do that?

I picked up the same warranty from Mastria last December. He quoted a few dollars under $1500, but I paid with Subaru Bucks, so we made it $1500 even (you can't get change back when paying with Bucks, and they come in $100 increments).

I did buy my warranty from Joe Gingras at Roto Subaru in Illinois. I had pursued 4 or 5 different quotes for the 5/100,000 $50 deductible, and Joe and Don were the most personable people that I dealt with. You can go back to post# 79 if you want to see my details.
Mine was $922 out the door. No tax, no doc fees, etc.

Thank you so much for the information. (I'll find out what a "Subaru Buck" is from Mastria Sounds great)

Hahah; sorry! Subaru Bucks are a "rewards" program through a Chase Mastercard. It provides 3% of all purchases toward a $100 rewards certificate. On the billing period in which the accumulated 3% exceeds $100, a certificate is mailed with the billing statement. A single account can accumulate up to $500 per year (the accumulation is frozen at that point until the billing period after the starting month). The certificates are currently good for 48 months after their issue date.
They can be used toward the purchase of a new Subaru vehicle, Subaru parts or accessories, labor on a Subaru vehicle, or an extended warranty. They are good in any continental US state (including Alaska).

I have $500 saved up.
IIRC we got $1400 off our Forester, and it's like cash so after the price was agreed upon.

How does this sound?
$1301 7yr 100k Gold Warranty $0 deductible (Joe/Roto)
No doc or tax fees extra. IF I want 10 payment plan there is a $79 surcharge (ie $1301 plus $79)
Don/Mastria hasn't returned my calls yet from this morning...Joe/Roto was right on it. Perhaps prices have gone up in last 6 months because it seems that last I checked the prices were aout $150 less 6 months ago? Does that seem right?

I don't know for sure. To me, the price quoted by Roto sounds great. That said, the MSRP of the warranties varies by model and model year. Mine was for a 2010 Forester X Premium.
The options presented to you by Roto were the exact same as those presented to me when I worked with Mastria last year (e.g., ten payments with a finance/service charge of $79).
