    I went with Warranty Direct.
    They offered the best warranty for my LS1 which covers replacement of "wear-n-tear" parts like pistons and rings etc.

    Check them out at Warrantydirect.com

    Well, from my experiances...bought a F-150 with 36k miles, got the extended warranty (non-factory) i kinda balked when i saw it was $800...but let me tell ya, that POS went thru 2 tranny's in 50K miles. Well worth it in the long run. By the way, it cost me 1500 to rebuild that POS AGAIN after the warranty was up (No, I did not drive it hard, never towed more than 500 lbs) i think it was just a POS tranny (mazda 5 speed)

    They are good, but usually twice as much then a dealer. If you get one out side of the dealer, just check to see if they will pay by credit card and if you can go to any autoshop. Oh, make sure they cover what you want covered also. Most the time, if you buy one from the dealer, you have to take it to that dealer for repairs.

    Be sure to check out the deductable amounts of the policies you're looking at. Be sure to read what is not covered. Most extended warranties will pay for the repair but not the "shop supplies" or fluids involved. I've seen extended warranties pay for a water pump and labor but not the antifreeze, cleaners or silicone required for the job. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    It may not sound like much but a lot of people are surprised when they find out the warranty repair they think is free actually cost them the deductable + supplies.

    Also, don't assume these policies will pay for every repair. Many times these policies are geared towards covering only essential items like the drivetrain, safety items, etc but it may not cover things like a upholstery or paint issues and maintenance items (timing belts, brake pads, etc).

    Right now we're just looking for one that covers the powertrain. (Engine, transmission, and computer) Just need the high $$$ items covered. We're okay with a $100.00 to $500.00 deductable.

    Hey man,i can respect you want to take care of your investment,and its your own buisness, but i NEVER do the extended warantee,heres why=It usually happens like this= buy the product, and buy the extended warantee.Own the product ,it works fine, but your still paying /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif 2 yrs go by,the product is still under warantee, still working fine..............3 yrs go by and you just maxed out your warrantee,no more warrantee.......2-3 thousand dollars(or however much) has been spent on the warrantee and the tranny goes out................its gonna be 2 grand to fix it. Wouldnt you have rather spent the money on the repairs right about then? Im sure there is a flip side, but i dont know if it equals out to me......just my 02,Jake* /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] I'm looking at a 4 year / 100,000 mile extended warrenty. $500.00 deductable. It'd be $77.00 per month for 12 months. I'm debating for a few bucks more getting the bumper to bumper warrenty, and a $300.00 deductable. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
