Extended warranties are not all the same, ie coverage some have deductibles and most are ridiculously expensive.

I purchased one in June, my cars warranty expired in May.

4 years, 75,000 miles ( i only have 8,000 on the car now ) no deductible, bumper to bumper, other than normal wear parts. 800 dollars.

Hopefully i will drive a little more often, but, i doubt i will go over 50K, but you never know.

Generally, they don't fix issues by fixing parts, they replace them and they are way too expensive to not have a warranty. After 7 years of ownership i may still keep it or probably trade it or sell it myself or give it to a grandchild who knows. But one window motor, fuel pump etc. will eat up a good bit of my cost for the warranty.

I know that the company that called me, sent me stuff in the mail, that i thought was associated with VW, might not be, didn't want to waste my time investigating it, wanted 2300 dollars for the same warranty i got for 800, and then he told me there was no way i could have a warranty like his for only 800, hmmmm, i said ok bye bye.
