Default Extended warranty

Hi,

I just bought a 2002 Acura 1.7 EL Premium with extended warranty of 6
years/160,000 kms. I am thinking of cancelation the extended warranty and
use the money to buy a new set of tires as the current tires are worn out.
The car has still factory warranty. Should I need the extended warranty?

Thank you.

N.

You can't afford tires for your car? That's very sad.

The point here is the worth of extended warranty. If it is not worth it
then better use the money to buy a set of tires which is clearly worth the
money.

So, the question is 'Is it worth the extended warranty?'

Its a tough call. I got the extended warranty when I bought my used 2002
RSX-S. I hope my car doesn't break down but its nice to have the extra
insurance just in case. I figure that if I have a problem, it'll probably
pay for itself.

Who is providing the warranty, Acura or a third party? If it's Acrua then
I'd keep it, if it's a third party I wouldn't. Extended warranties tend to
be ripoffs in the first place but at least with the automaker you have a
reasonable expectation that they will be around when you need to use the
warranty. With a 3rd party you don't know if they will even be in business
when you need a repair, and if they are you don't know if they are going
to make it difficult for you to collect.

Heck, you sometimes cannot even trust the regular warranty. People have
been denied claims on cracking leather seats in the RSX-S while others have
had them fix/replaced no problem. I'm not sure I would buy another
extended
warranty up front unless there is incentive to buy it sooner rather than
later (like
a discount for example). Otherwise you are just giving the warranty company
an interest free loan. I asked if I could cancel my extended warranty when
I bought
and was told I could at any time. Well I contacted Acura and they tell me
that I
cannot. Sometimes I wonder where the lies end..........
