I have a friend who swears by it, he had issues with his car and having the extended warranty saved him big $$$. I understand its one data point and could be a huge outlier, but up to this point thats all I had with people I know and extended warranty experience(s).
If it was a big chunk of change Id second guess it, I still will weigh my options, but the expense seems to be minimal for the peace of mind.
Especially if a sizeable discount could be had with the group buy. I'm still waiting to see how the numbers shake out.
But again, slats point on what actually will be replaced under the extended warranty and what caveats are in place are something we should all be well aware of.
