That's true mate, especially when they try to calculate their maintenance by emotions, but not by logic. The guy mentioned ~$500 CAD for 4 first services (he assumed that, he didn't check the cost). I didn't buy any extended warranty and paid $260 CAD for 4 services (2 oil changes).It kills me to the core when I hear people say I got (paid) for the extended warranty to get the free oil changes and maintenance, when in reality all you did is pay for the oil changes and tire rotations up front. There is virtually zero other maintenance done during the first 3/36. My .02 Msg me for the contact info of the lowest price I found anywhere and still didn't buy.
The concept of extended warranty is based of people's fear that something bad will happen. You buy a car from the brand that is suppose to be reliable. There are other brands that aren't reliable or aren't as reliable as Toyota and yes you need an extended warranty there. But what kind of logic is this to buy a crappy unreliable car to have problems with it and then to pay extra for the extended warranty? Why to support them in this case?
