Advice on whether to get an extended warranty on the Hatch Sport Touring? Of course the dealer wants to sell me one; saying there's a lot of electronics in this & lots of it is outsourced. We like to keep our vehicles for a very long time & this is the first time we're actually considering making that investment. Any advice would be appreciated.

if it's reasonable to purchase. you can negotiate the cost of this - as it's not usually a dealer item (it's a third party policy - generally).

and i think you can usually buy one yourself from same 3rd party at a later date - but i think you have to purchase it before the manufacturer warranty runs out.

only you can decide if it's a good deal for you.

I reckon they're a good deal at the RIGHT price. For a new vehicle the Honda care warranty is likely the best bet (not a 3rd party). Go to hyannishondacare.com/questionnaire.php and get an online quote, then see if your dealer can match it. Needs to be done in first 6,000 miles or 6 months for new vehicle pricing.

Its really in how much you are willing to pay and how long, if its a 5 yr 60k its really only covering you for the 2 years or 24k miles after your factory expires and these are very negotiable, they started me at $100 a month for 5 years 100k miles and when all was said and done i paid under $5 month but only got 5 yrs 60k, but I got the tire and wheel coverage in case of scratches or flats and I got the paint sealant once a year included. Ill have to go check what the actual $ cost was. I forgot how they worked the numbers in the deal now. And you can always cancel after the fact and get a refund for the unused portion of the warranty. Or if you total or trade it before the warranty expires you can get a credit for the unused portion as well, either as a check or towards the next car you buy.
