I was quoted a few Canadian warranty extensions, but nothing so simple as a MaxCare all-in, lifetime coverage. (It was like watching a shell game at the carny show as the salesman tried to explain it all!) The simplest one was a two year extension (from 3 to 5 years), with cost of $3,665 for 160,000km limit and $4,850 for 200,000km limit.
I have a year to opt in at no extra cost. But these costs can't be justified in my budget. (Can you say hosed?) If I had the American MaxCare option, I would definitely consider it. But at these rates I will take my chances. Still, presumably some people must think its worthwhile.
