I did read your first post. That is what prompted my question.

In your post, under "the heading EXTENDED VEHICLE PROTECTION", it says, "To be clear this is 5-7 years from the IN SERVICE DATE."

The "in service date" is the date you take title to the vehicle. It is also the date from which the manufacturer's warranty begins to run. Therefore, if you purchase extended vehicle protection that begins to run on the "in service date", you are purchasing duplicative coverage for period the manufacturer's warranty runs.

This seems to me to be a waste of money. It makes more sense to wait until the manufacturer's coverage is nearing expiration to purchase coverage beyond it.
