I do think it's worth it, if you intend to keep the car.

when i purchased my Astra new from the showroom back in January 2008 i bought the 100,000 warranty and the Gap-insurance. if something gets to the point of breaking, this thing is going in and if All-State doesnt cover the full price of the car if i total it, Gap-insurance kicks in and takes care of the rest.

to answer your question, yes i would.

Extended warranties are insurance policies. Instead of making someone else rich, take the money you'd be spending on that policy and put it aside somewhere that you won't spend it. Once you have about $3,000 in that fund, you can fix just about anything that happens to a car.

Default Re: Extended Warranty for Astra 08

i have never purchased an extended warranty on anything that i have purchased over the years. as far as i am concerned, the majority of these warranties are ripoffs. my mechanic will NOT accept warranty work via 3rd party warranties.
ask your 3rd party warranter thsi question - if my transmission fails, do i get a freshly rebuilt unit or do i get a boneyard used one?
u many pay $x when u purchase your item, but that warranty does not kick in until the manufacture's warranty expires.
i agree with vanilla sky.
