This may be a basic question but for someone who has yet to purchase the extended warranty who pays for TSB work? Like rattling speakers, lubing or replacing front struts (if there is a TSB), creaky steering wheel etc...

Should I just bite the bullet and purchase the extended warranty?

With all of my other vehicles all TSB work has been covered by the manufacturer.

reddragon, when your vehicle is under warranty (and sometimes after) the dealer will fix items under TSBs at no cost to you. I considered the extended warranty, but I decided against it, since reliability is why I bought a Honda. Chevy, Ford, Dodge - definitely buy the warranty.

Agree 100%. Haven't even needed the original warranty. Never considered an extended as it's a Honda.:D Only ExW I ever had is on my present desktop and it has lived over 4 years, longest of any I've had.

Nice, I wish I had your luck. Mine has been in 4 times for warranty work already.

Dealers love warranty work-their reimbursement rate is higher than what they could charge the general public without causing heart attacks. In 50,000miles of warranty on my Mercedes (POS), I had 58 pages of warranty repairs. Every time I took it in for one little thing, they found ten others that needed 'fixed' under warranty. Including things like a new steering wheel because mine was showing wear, I was missing a panel plug in the cargo area and they replaced the entire unit becasue it was 'defective', etc. I had almost a brand new car every time I got it back. :)

Warranties are definitely good for PCs, although they always seem to break right after the warranty expires. Can you say planned obsolescence? :D

scottIN I feel your German car pain. My last Audi (2000 S4) had over 10 grand in warranty work in 2 years. I never thought I would say it, but never buy a German car without an extented warranty!! Exactly why I am now driving a Honda. ;)
