Warranty Question

Question about extended warranties if you don't mind. Recently purchased my '05 with 11K miles and was asked about an extended warranty. Here, it was offered out to 60K miles bumper to bumper for about 1400.00. I didn't take it, but have about another 3wks to make up my mind. If I did this, they would hear from me everytime it sneezed. I know the motor has 100k of warranty, so this would be a moot point. However, I was wondering about the tranny and front and rear end and other majors. The best I can see, that falls under the 3/36K. Am I wrong about the coverage? And if I'm not, how many of you would recommend the extended?

Thanks in advance....

Warranty

Hey... The trans, front, and rear differential is covered under 5/100 powertrain. Everything else would be base warranty. I'd say go for the extended warranty if you're going to drive the truck hard. It will pay for itself if you smoke your pads, rotors, and ball joints, which tends to happen if you really beat on it. If you're going to take it easy on the truck, put that $1400 into a nice exhaust or chip!

I didn't think that pads, rotors were covered under any warranty. I thought those fell under the wearable items....

Hey Carl correct me if i'm wrong but aren't all emmisions related components (i.e. exhaust catalyst, fuel injection and other EFI related systems) covered for the life of the vehicle? i thought there was a new federal regulation regarding that.

Warranty

Hey... I think I had a brain fart when I said that pads and rotors are covered under ESP, sorry about that. In terms of lifetime warranty on the catalytic converter, I've never heard of that, although it would be nice because they are wicked expensive. Regarding fuel injection related components, those should definently be covered under 5/100. Unfortunatly, even though a failed injection component will cause some nasty emmisions, I can't see any manufacturer covering those pieces for the lifetime of the truck. Jwiger, if you see or hear anything else regarding that, let me know. I'd be interested to learn more about that.

I had an ey-opening experience with an extended warranty. It was on a '94 Chevy 3/4T. They had a lot of trouble with the trannys on that truck. Anyway, my tranny went out at 37,000...1000 over the factory warranty...but not to worry. I had the extended warranty. I had a new tranny put in at the dealership and when they called the outfit that did the extended warranty they refused the claim because I had done the service on the vehicle myself. They flat refused to pay. I'll never have on again. I think they are a real money-maker for the dealerships.

Buffman, I've always heard that, but just thought I may not be giving correct thought. I have heard of people that have made out like a bandit on them, but they are few and far between. I'm thinking that I may take your advice....
