The cars I'm looking for are GM certified, but there's also a ton of private sellers with better prices.

Anyone ever bought an extended warranty on their own? Links?

Wife and I got one when we bought our Avalanche off EBAY several years ago. Was offered by our Credit Union and has paid for itself. I believe it was Mercury something or other.

Record keeping requirements make it almost impossible to file a claim. Save your money and pay for your own repair

If they go out of business you = screwed.

My comprehensive deduction is $500 but my mechanical insurance is only $50 deductible. When I called them they initially said they'd hook me up with their window service but the bill was on me. About an hour a later a supervisor reviewing the case called back and said that it would be just $50 because of the mechanical insurance.

Since I off-road the truck and have it customized I didn't want to argue with the dealer than the lift coils and skid plates caused this or that problem. I do all my own maintenance and don't need the arguments.

Interesting. Do you by chance have a link to a program explanation?
