Default HELP - Question on Honda Extended Warranty - N.A.D.S" etc....for new Element

Hi,

Hope one of you can lend some help. I just bought a new 2004 Element,
and the dealer offers an extended warranty (of course!). I've only
seen a "Example" contract...but I'd like to get feedback about whether
this is really a Honda contrcat or ???


The first page...titled " Service Contract Reimbursemnet Guarantee" in
a "N.A.D.S" document....a company (?) in Lakewood Colorado...seemingly
offering that I can get a refund as long as i don't "use" the
contract!!!

Still, key information (like what IS coveraged) seems to be not well
disclosed....on;y
"Examples of Systems covered". And, so far the sample contract
presenet, doesn't have any other "signature page" showing actually
whom is tyhe contract between!

I'm interested in a Honda Factory extended warranty, noit some crap
administrated by a 3rd party!


I assume one of you guys actually could shed some light on this...SOON
PLEASE!!!!

Why worry about exented warranty for the first 3 yrs?

I bought a extented warranty on the web, sold the vehicle after the warranty
company put out over $1500.00, and they re-imbursed me the balance of the
warranty.

They probably all go thru a third party, they all get a piece of the pie.

The factory Honda warranty will say Honda Care on it somewhere. If not,
then it isn't Honda backed. Also check out
http://www.curryhondacare.com/?source=overture This website gives the price
you should be paying at the dealer. Print the website pricing page and
your dealer will give you the factory backed warranty for that price. If
they dicker with you, go elsewhere. That web's pricing cuts the dealership
out of any markup on the warranty. Or so I was told.

My copy of the Honda Care warranty says it in the top right corner.

Good luck the Element.

I was told that you are charged more for the warranty if you wait any time
after purchase. I suppose that is why the Honda Care website asks for your
milage when quoting prices. Test it some time. The price goes up as you
add miles to the vehicle.

Sure sounds like a third party contract. Personally I generally do not buy
extended warranties, and when I do I insist on one from the vehicle mfg.

Third party companies generate higher profits for the dealer ... guess where
that money comes from ???
