Subject: Re: Extended warranty on new 9-5?

It seems too expensive. Bear in mind that the extended warranty will not cover normal wear or failures due to "perceived" abuse. Read the small print if you decide, but I don't like this high pressure sales tactics. Why 48000 miles ? I thought that 60000 miles was standard.
