Honda Plus Warranty - Worth it or Not

What do you guys think about getting HOnda Plus warranty on 2013 Honda accord - sport.

I bought it for $2200 which covers 8 years - 200,000 Km

Do you guys think its worth it, or should i return, i still have 20 days to return the warranty if i want to. here is the detail on the warranty. It looks good on the paper but i heard, when time comes, honda try to void warranty saying you didnt do this right etc.



What do you guys think.

I'd return it... My dealer wanted 2275 for theirs I told them I could get almost the same thing for 975 from Hyannis honda, with no proof i had even contacted them, he took $1075 off made it 120,000 miles 0$ deductable added ding and dent, free regular maint. (forgot the name but brakes, oil changes, all the regular stuff) and after I shook my head offered to toss the wing spoiler and splash guards on for free.

Dealers can charge whatever they want for that. Usually, any money you negotiated off the sticker price they just up the prices of the extra crap they sell in the finance manager's office.

I would return it.

When they ask why you tell them the price is too high and you can get a 3rd party warranty for half the price. I suspect they will offer a discount, but if they don't, just go to another Honda dealer and ask for it.

I paid $1,200 for 6/120,000 miles, which works out to 264,000km.

You should be able to pay about the same if not better.

I should add, that I only bought one because I am unsure of the VCT and its longevity at the mercy of my right foot. I typically own a car for 6 years and it will probably have 150,000 miles on it before it gets passed on to a family member.

In your region that may be true. Prices are regionalized (try 'building your Honda and select 02134 for a ZIP code) and there may be some logistics that also apply (areas of bad traffic, rocksalt on the roads, cost of living) to also increase the cost. Of course I could just have been ripped off too, but I feel $1200 was a reasonable cost.

Yes, I meant to say CVT earlier, my bad.

"I could get almost the same thing for 975 from Hyannis honda" .....from a previous post. 8/100/100 deductible. 8/100/0 deductible for about 100 more. I'm in CO.

$1200 is reasonable for OEM, but you'd mentioned third party.
