Subject: Re: Extended Warranty

I would have to disagree. It depends on the general level of dependability of the car. For a Honda or Toyota I would probably pass on the extended warranty. On a Volvo or Saab, I'd consider it. (1) Neither has a currently good reputation for trouble free service and (2) The parts and labor are outrageously expensive. One large item like a transmission could pay for the warranty alone. I'm a current 9-5 owner and a former owner of three troublesome Volvo 850's and a V-70 (the worst car I ever owned). It spent more time in the shop than on the road. I traded it at 23,000 miles for the 9-5 Wagon.
