Car? Escape is a truck, not a car.
WHEW! That's what the dealer is thinking. WHEW! I made $1100 selling
that warranty. And I will make a bunch of money fixing that A/C, too.
That's dealer prices. You probably could have had the thing fixed much
less at an independent shop.
And, you still spent $200 more on the insurance (it is not a warranty,
but rather, insurance) than the cost of the repair.
That dealer saw you coming.
I think you guys are missing Ashtons point...
A long time ago, in a nearly forgotten comic strip - husband has admonished
his wife about unecessary purchases... she retaliates with " what about
you? you just HAD to buy that fire extinguisher... and have you used it yet?
Personally, I find extended warrantees unattractive.... some find the "peace
of mind" offered as irreplaceable... some even make out like Jack the Bear .
It is OK to have an opinion... but being judgemental is a tad lame..
I'm to friggin' old for "got some".
Momma spent the last week in Edmonton visiting doctors again but she's home
Besides... I reserve "being judgemental" for me....
My Saturday to work.... and what a day it was......
They aren't an investment. Insurance is a way of making sure that
emergency expenses that are very high (like replacing a burnt out home)
are covered. Buying insurance on a vehicle, a computer (except in the
case of an Apple), a printer or a washer is a poor decision in most cases.
It is never an investment.
While I agree that collision insurance is optional, except when required by
the lending institution holding the lien on your vehicle, I would argue that
liability, mandatory, is NOT insurance on the other guy. Rather it is you
betting that you will be involved in a collision and found to be at fault.
Not really insurance on the "other guy".
