my experience with SOA Added Security- I always get the 7yr/100k gold with zero deductible
98 legacy GT -130K, replaced a/c evap/condensor and compressor, power radio antenna twice, engine oil leak fixed, dealer even got SOA to pay for the timing belt at the time of the oil leak as it was "damaged" by the oil, also dealer replaced several dash bulbs (which are not actually covered), got way more than my money back on this one
02 WRX - 60K - lost money on this one, though they did replace leaking fuel lines, but that issue eventually became a recall item, also replaced rear view dimming mirror/compass
06 Tribeca- 60K , still have another year of ext warranty to go, have had bushings, and control rods replaced so far under the ext warranty- I was just out the 5yr/60K powertrain warranty on that , replaced 2 dc power outlets, probably break even at the least if not ahead even if nothing else needs fixing
I will say if you have it they (dealer and SOA) seem to treat you much better on issues, eg the fuel line leak, dealer initially said it wasn't covered as it was a "hose" which is a "wear" item. When I called SOA and said I had an ext warranty, they immediately had dealer fix it under the ext warranty. though it would have been covered under the recall which came out a year or two later so I probably could have got my money back on that repair
you can usually find a dealer on line to sell it for 2/3 list price. you also don't need to buy it till just before the 3 yr/36K bumper to bumper warranty is up
if you put a lot of miles on (but not above the covergae limits!) its probably worth it, if not probably not

I got a Gold Plus Warranty for my 2007 Spec B from a dealer in MA for $150 over cost with no tax. Will post if I can find the info.
