    WTF?! So I've been getting these 'warranty' notices in the mail lately, because my '04 GTO is almost 3 years old and every rapist in the country wants to sell you their extended warranty.
    This one is great, they list what it costs, on average:haha: , to repair certain things.
    They list:
    Air Conditioning: $1825
    Alternator: $1105
    Engine Computer: $1650
    Engine: $4160
    Starter: $958
    Transmission: $3884
    Power wdw motor: $1050
    Wiper motor: $1050
    Water Pump: $744
    Steering: $2250

    On average! Like sometimes it's more than this. :haha: :haha:

    Um....if somebody charged me $958 to replace my starter, I'd better get a BJ & a ticket to the superbowl.
