As I read it, yes. Every time you take it in you pay another deductible. I suppose if they didn't fix it right the first time you could argue that one. If you take it in once to have a bunch of things fixed, I'm not sure on the deductible. My current car is a 2003 Murano with 111,000 on it. Zero squawks on it at this point. I did have a wheel bearing replaced (under original warranty), and before it goes to my sister-in-law (when my SFU arrives) I had the muffler repaired and a tie rod end replaced. Total out of pocket expenses < $500 in 10 years. I spent $1000 on an extended powertrain warranty (because the CVT was new at the time), which didn't cover any of the repairs that were made. I'm leaning toward taking my chances ....

I've been thinking about the warranty myself and here is where I'm at. My truck is 9 years old now and has had very few problems but it has had some. I spent probably $500 getting the drivers window motor replaced, which was two different parts and two different trips. So I do wonder about this, had it happened under an extended warranty would I have had to pay 2 deductibles? I didn't have to pay labor the second time because I told them they didn't fix it right. I had to pay about a hundred bucks a few months ago to get the tailpipe welded back on though to correctly fix it would have cost significantly more. My rear park sensors don't work and would probably cost 200-500 to get that fixed, but doesn't bother me enough to spend that money. My heater switch is funky, it decides to blow air out any one of the 5 vent settings as it sees fit. So I have it on my feet and it will just decided to blow it out the vents in the dash. Well that's an $800 fix that isn't worth that kind of money to me since it only happens when it's really cold. So if I added all the things that I should fix up, it might cover the $2000 cost, but I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to just get those things fixed rather then having to deal with them. So I'm leaning more towards buying the warranty within that first year.
I will give you my reasoning why I did buy it...

-it is the first year of a new electrical platform and drive train (neither I am really concerned about BUT I have no history data)

-I bought 5 year bumper to bumper for the above reason and I will use these years to figure out how many years more I feel comfortable with but I know my costs are very well defined for these 5 years.

-More to the above note, I have the money today and the piece of mind is valuable to me. I work for myself and I have good quarters and bad quarters, so having a defined cost of ownership really helps.

-I also tow a trailer, and probably have slightly more wear on my vehicles than the average joe.

-Costs of repair will always continue to rise, but I have effectively frozen mine.

Now saying all of that. Extended Warranties are not a must by any means. I have read lots of articles on them and truly people like Vtail are probably just nicer on their vehicles than I am. A little extra care goes a long way as well. I think everyone needs to look and see about their personal needs and history with vehicles but also just consider the vehicle they have and the options.... One of my big deciding factors was air suspension!

Fear of electrical gremlins pushed me to get the Chrysler extended warranty.

My current ride is a 2008 MB R320 CDI 4Matic. The best highway car I have ever driven, S class included. I purchased the factory bumper to bumper coverage when I bought it for all the reasons Willx mentioned. Cost back then about 2500 bucks... remember the this car and the WK2 share the same genetics...

I recently asked the dealer what the cost of the extended warranty covered repairs would have been had I paid them out of pocket... a whopping $17,000.00 was the answer - up to 160K coverage.

Oil seals 3 times, turbo issues, various electrical/onic items, aux batteries, CANBUS, etc. right up to and including a transmission at 159800 KM, that I called in because they could not make an app. before the warranty expired...

So, I am definitely buying the best extended warranty I can afford. Air suspension will definitely fail at some point in this vehicles life, just a matter of when, very complicated drive train and associated electronic controls all mated to a powerplant with zero OPEX in North America, the most sophisticated entertainment system in the automotive world, also really only been around for 2 years or so in this form, but only on other platforms...

If I amortize the cost of this peace of mind warranty over my expected time of ownership, its like half a tank of gas extra per month, and the guarantee of zero catastrophic repair costs, This is no brainer for me!

Appreciate the discussion. Can see both sides. Am leaning towards the extended contract for reasons mentioned. Electrical, air suspension, towing, etc... For those seriously considering it, are you looking at the 8yr/120,000 max care/$100 deductible for $2000? Or something else? Same coverage, different price?

Transmission - engine braking

A quick question regarding engine braking. Just wanted to know how the ZF program is managing this, both at highway speeds in urban streets? I find myself regularly wanting to slow down without showing brake lights?
