#37 of 38 Re: Extended Warranty Cost [ronnieron]

It's been 3+ months, but if I recall Major Guard was like $2Gs.
A little story - I had my Trailblazer 6 years. When I bought it, the top warranty which extended bumper to bumper to 5 years was $1600 and I declined. Over the 5 I never needed it. At 5 years, 3 months the fan clutch went to the tune of $900.
From my experience, after market warranties cost less but you have the hassle of haggling over who does the work and how much they will fund of the repair.
About 15 years ago, I bought an extended warranty for a 2 years old Pontiac 6000 wagon because the price was an unbelievable $250 with $200 deductible for 5 years. Blew a head gasket on it, had it towed to the dealer and they picked up the full cost of their share for an engine replacement with no haggling.

Our first new vehicle was the Nox we bought a few months ago, and we didn't get the extended warranty. If you do want the extended warranty, one thing I read in an article (might have been on Edmunds even) is that dealers make about a 50% profit on them. So if they sell you one for $2000, they are making $1000 on that deal. So the article said you should be able talk them down quite a bit.
