      What about on a 2017 gmc Denali 2500hd with 36500 miles should I buy 100000 extended bumper to bumper warranty?

      Most people don't realize that the price of an extended warranty and gap insurance IS negotiable. This is where dealers make most of their money. They will often sell a car at cost, but they mark up the prices of warranty and gap. An extended warranty that they sell you for $3500 will sometimes cost the dealer well under $2000. Gap can cost a dealership $200 but will sell it for $1000. Sometimes a dealer just cares about sales volume to get incentives and rebates back from their manufacturer, because these are all the places they really make their money

      I was "suckered" into a extended warranty when I bought my 2013 Ford Escape. 4 years later, the transmission failed just after the original manufacturer's warranty expired. I am so glad I got "suckered" into buying that extension, saved me $4000.

      What gets me is that people will gamble on the lottery or casino when the odds are many times against them. But when the odds are in their favor such as extended warranties they don’t want to chance it.

      Bought extended warranty on a Dell computer which kept messing up. They paid several times to send a tech to my house and they could not fix the problem. They replaced the computer. Bought extended warranty on a Canon camera which failed. They gave me back the entire purchase price of over $1000. Bought extended warranty on a Nissan car whose XM radio failed just after the factory included four year warranty. The repair was $200 in parts and 15 hours in labor. I don't know what the labor cost was but we all know it was at least $75 per shop hour. The extended warranty was $3000. So I have got $1325 back out of that now. I believe in warranties.

      Generally, extended warranties are free money for the warranty company.
      Why do you think extended warranty companies are calling you non stop? $$$

      I tell sales people that an extended warranty means the car is so unreliable that they want me to buy $500 or a grand in breakdown insurance for it, suggesting that the risk of a loss of umpteen thousand dollars must be pretty high to justify that premium, and maybe I need to look for a more reliable model. Shuts them right up.

      My life is Murphy's law. If I don't get the warranty I'm gonna need to get a new transmission and cam shaft. If I do buy the warranty, nothing will happen

      Love Dave, but I disagree. By using this logic, you don't need insurance.

      I wish there were long term follow ups on these callers. I'd love to hear 3 years since purchase and 7 years since new, how much she has spent out of pocket for repairs vs the price of the warranty. If you have the money to throw at the car and not think twice about it. God be with you, especially on BMW. If you are on a budget, like 80% of the people that don't live in Dave's Utopian Bubble. Buy a warranty, and protect your purchase. She might want to cancel her collision insurance and health insurance, it's all the same concept now isn't it?

      he's simply saying that the warranty is more expensive than the anticipated repairs. it has to be or else the warranty company would go out of business. they estimate the cost of repairs of a car for the next 6 years and then charge you that amount x 8.

      example: if expected repairs (based on statistical analysis) over the next 6 years are $1,000, the warranty company will sell you that insurance for $8,000. They get to cover the cost of repairs and keep the extra $7k. They will pay bills and take a profit out of the $7k. this is how all insurance works.

      In that example you would've been better off keeping a repair fund of $1,000 instead of paying $8k to the warranty company. Make sense?

      People like warranties because they don't have to responsible for saving money, but that laziness and lack of discipline is really expensive. Life insurance, health insurance, disability insurance, and auto liability insurance protect you from catastrophes that could ruin you. most other insurance/warranties are a waste of money.

      BMW: Buy the warranty or take the car back and buy a Toyota.

      This was terrible advice, she bought a used BMW not a lexus, the car WILL break. Now, the girl sounded like a pseudo intellectual who probably didn't read the fine print of the warranty, but assuming they actually do cover all issues, she's gonna need all the warranty she can get for that money pit.

      Best advise: Take a holistic view of all warranties and never buy any.... any.... You got to go in 100% on this. You will come out way ahead. Yes, at some point some device will ultimately fail that a warranty would of fixed, but odds are greatly in your favor that is you have never purchased ANY warranties, ,you will come out way ahead. Don't compromise on this. Ignore the plan on electronics, cars, tools, homes, etc. Ignore them all and you still come out way ahead.
