Extended warranties are the BIGGEST rip offs!!dpmredwing said:Do you have any idea how much the warranty cost and how long it lasts? If it's $1500 or less I think it might be worth it to just pay for the warranty and then if anything fairly major goes bad that's pretty much one visit to the shop right there.
I'm pretty certain up until 35K miles you can purchase one through the dealer. Give them a ring, and they'll know for sure...dpmredwing said:I've got an '01 IS w/ 26k miles and was wondering if anyone knows if there is an extended warranty we can buy through the dealer after the original warranty expires? Also how much, and is it worth it??

My $0.02.. I'm not really worried about the bumper-to-bumper deal.. I'm only concerned with potential trannie and engine failure (although less likely).. but the powertrain is already covered to 7 years or 70k miles.. so.. if you're concerned about your ashtray falling apart in 5 years, then maybe the Platinum deal is for you.. but if you're only worried about the powertrain, I'd say screw it.. you'd basically be paying $1300+ (Gold) to get an additional 30k of powertrain protection.. that pays for rebuilt trannie if you ever need one.. hell, it'd even pay for a rebuilt or used motor should you require it..IS 300
