I know unicycle's didn't give out til the 60k mile range. Obviously some will go farther than others before giving out. Mine already has done the no reverse a week ago but not a hic since. Documented at the dealer to show the problem started within warranty, in case this decides to drag out...

not bad

These prices dont look too bad, is there any room to negotiate them? I think for a car with 3-12K, just coming up on the ridiculous two year mark, 895$ to extend it 2 more years and about 20K miles is pretty reasonable. Are there better policy plans


AND, is it true that these warranties won't cover the clutch?

Please change my answer. I had some rare occasions where My '08 didn't want to go into "R" or "D." Possibly driver error, but the dealer replaced it with the new '09 version.
