I have gotten a lot of robocalls warning me that my vehicle warranty was about to expire. On a 2008 with 190k miles, that I purchased 'used'? I don't think so!

I got a piece of mail offering up an extended warranty on my "has expired or about to expire", 2008 Honda Civic.

1. I sold it just over two years ago
2. It had 218,000 miles on it

Sure....let me think about it for a while..........NOPEY!

Recently, there has been a huge advertising campaign on television for extended car warranties and I hate to think of the number of folks that get suckered into purchasing these plans. IMHO, folks would be better off just taking the amount of a monthly premium and putting it into a designated savings account for car repairs. Even if you had to put a major repair on a credit card and pay a little interest, I think it would be cheaper than paying for those extended warranties, and I think a lot of purchasers fail to realize that the plans don't typically pay for normal wear and tear expenses.

But these companies thrive on the idea that there's a sucker born every minute!

As for post title - my grandfather's reply when my grandmother said you don't listen was ”Dear I'm right. As soon as you realize that we will both be much happier” He was quite the character.

As for extended warranty I told them one time I had a 2007 Mustang, ran well not many miles. After some back & forth I said you know this is a horse. I need health insurance for my mustang. Click, line went dead.

Actually when I was thinking (about 7 years ago) of buying a new Jeep, I would have bought FCA's extended warranty because they offered a lifetime contract. I think it could have paid for itself rather easily if I kept the Jeep for 20 years or more as I intended.

I have the lifetime Mopar warranty on my 2014 Jeep Cherokee. It has already paid for itself! Part of the deal is if they ever canít fix it, they pay me bluebook value and they keep the jeep.

Continuing that line of thought, you also never purchase health insurance.

I’ve never been a fan of extended warranties or service plans on most items. However, I’ll be purchasing a Honda Care extended warranty on a 2019 PHEV, prior to the expiration of the factory 3/36K warranty. Coverage will be for an additional 5 years with mileage options of 80K, 100K or 120K. Prices for $0 deductible plans range from $1053 to $1494 for the 5 year contract. There are just too many gizmos on modern cars that have a potential to fail over an 8 year period. Some owners have had repairs made under warranty that would have cost $1500-$6500, outside of warranty.

We’ll likely opt for the 80K plan at just over $1000. If the car doesn’t receive $1000 of repaires under the warranty, I won’t lose any sleep over the decision. The battery is covered under a factory 10/150K warranty, so the car should remain at a near zero cost of operation for the next 5-7 years.
