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.
Honda new car warranties use the same terminology...they begin at the vehicle in-service date. This is common for nearly all new car warranties. Used car warranties begin at the end of the new car warranty, but are often third-party and do not cover as much.
