Default Extend my Acura 3.2 TL warranty?

I have 2003 Acura 3.2 TL. It has only around 3400 miles on it and is almost
1 year old. I'm thinking of extending my current 4 year warranty to 7
years, since this is the max extended warranty offered by Acura Care.

Since I drive VERY low mileage, I'm leaning toward the 7yr./75K mile
warranty.

I'm located in NJ. There is an Acura Dealer in NJ that is selling the
7yr/75K Acura Care extended warranty, for the 2003 3.2 TL,over the internet
for $865. I'm assuming is gonna be cheaper than what my local dealer would
charge for the same contract. (Note: I verified that this CA dealer is
really an Acura dealer by going to the Acura website)

Assuming I can't get my local dealer to match or beat this price, then do
you see any problem with my getting the warranty from the CA dealer? In
other words, am I correct in assuming that, as long as I have an Acura Care
extended warranty from American Honda, it doesn't matter what dealer I
purchased the extended warranty from?

Last question: Overall, do you feel paying $865 to extend my warranty from
4 to 7 years would be worth it for a very low mileage driver such as myself.
(I could wind up only having 30K on the car at the end of the 7 years).

Thanks.

Jeff

To clarify, I meant to say that the dealer that is selling the $865 Acura
Care 7yr/70K extended warranty contract, over the internet, is in CA, not
NJ. I'm located in NJ, so, am I correct in thinking that it doesn't matter
which dealer I purchase the extended warranty from, as long as it's an Acura
Care warranty from American Honda? (The sample contract on the website says
that you can bring it to any dealer if it's impractical to bring it to the
dealer you purchased the contract from.)

Thanks.

Jeff

I will never buy an extended warranty again. Had one years ago, the
company, on every repair, said it was "normal wear and tear". They
said that about things like the fusebox going bad (at 4 years of age)
the carboreator going out (at 40,000 miles) the radio dying,
transmission grinding, etc. Basically if I did not sue them, they
woeren't going to consider any repairs.

Was it a genuine manufacturer warranty, such as the Acura Care extended
warranty offerred by American Honda, or was if one of those 3rd party
warranties? (I'm not considering the latter)

Thanks.

Jeff

I used a internet extended warranty, it was great!

The best thing about it was that when I traded in for a new vehicle they
gave me back the remainder of warranty in cash.


When I bought my new Honda, and would not extend it thru Honda.

As soon as I showed the person the deal I had on the trade in he dropped
the Honda price $500 in a heart beat.

It sounds like a good deal to me. I bought an extended warranty on my '98 Olds
Silhouette (7 yrs / 100K miles) for about $1200 and it ended up paying out about
$5000 in repairs over several years and the refunding me $400 for the unused
time when I got rid of the van 14 months before the warranty expired. Of
course, that was an Oldsmobile. I bought a warranty for my '98 TL and have yet
to use it - but I still have three more years.
