This is what I have seen.

My wifes car was a new but manager's demo car. It had 2k miles and the warranty expiration is off this mileage

Re: 2014 JGC - Extended Warranty

Dealer tried to sneak this into my purchase as well. They wanted to charge $2,999 for it initially and then tried to talk down the price from there after I flat out refused. My salesmen knew I was an informed buyer and didn't try to bother, but the finance guy was the one pushing and got a little bent after I flat out rejected his speech on the offer after he showed me the price.

From date of in-service. Some of the extra benefits that come with the MaxCare service contract (Again...it's not a 'warranty') are nice to have, even while the vehicle is still covered under the factory warranty, such as Trip Interruption, Taxi coverage, Rental, Roadside assistance, etc. I did wait until just before I ticked over 12K miles, but that was more of a money decision. I plan on driving this JGC for 5-7 years and chose the lifetime version simply because my current driving patterns would blow through 100K miles long before I'm ready for my next one.

That said, it's a nice option to have available if someone suddenly decides to keep a car longer than they might have originally intended and wants to gain or re-gain 'warranty like' coverage for that extended period of time. They pay an additional amount to subscribe and any mileage/time limit still dates from the original in-service date, but they get some coverage for things that might be expensive out-of-pocket.

Re: 2014 JGC - Extended Warranty

You have the original warrenty until it runs out, the extra just has added benefits before that. It is less expensive (about 10%) in the first year/12000 miles. Is also a matter of when you expect inflation to return.

Not true everywhere but in Florida it can be transferred when the car is sold so can get some back if do not keep. That said, every car I have bought new since 1971 has been kept for over a decade & the current herd has over 170 years of "experience".
