Try the search. There are quite a few threads here about this already. It's not specific to the 2022. It used to be that you could buy it from any dealer anywhere but Subaru clamped down on that, probably from pressure from the dealers who make more on upsells like that than on the cars themselves.For those of you who have bought a 2022 I’m sure you were quoted a price for an extended warranty. Just wondering what the price was AND how long is that extended warranty for, miles/years?
Also remember that that applies to ALL insurance! Your home insurance company is not in the business of losing money!Remember Subaru (or whoever is writing the warranty) is making money. That means the majority of people who buy the warranty lose money. The car comes with 3yr/36kmiles basic warranty and drive train 5yr/60kmiles. The extended warranty "extends" from those miles/times.
What was the outcome?I’m currently at work and wife calls me, the local dealer just got in a blue crosstrek. It’s a limited and decked out, more than what she wants but they are hard to come by in blue. She’s getting all the numbers now and the warranty they are quoting her is $2400. Seems a lil steep. Wonder how negotiable they are.
Yes they all make money. Total loss of a house or a car or a liability suite is potentially much higher than a repair on a car.Also remember that that applies to ALL insurance! Your home insurance company is not in the business of losing money!
Not sure why this is such a contentious issue here?
Really? What were the details of the warranty? If it's the Subaru Gold Plus or comparable, that's a steal!Way steep! They used to go for $1,600...
The Gold Plus used to go for $1,600 online before Subaru shut that down, so $1,700 isn't bad.Price is what the market will bear, regardless of model. You could pay more or less for the same plan on your Crosstrek. BTW, $1700 is a very good deal for the 10/100/0 Gold+.
There are other types of insurance that you don't have to have, but are wise to do so like:some insurance you are required to have. others, like extended car warranties, are elective
my home and my vehicles are paid off, and fully insured. i don't buy extended warranties on cars. my tundra is a 2004 and is fully insured. i bought it new. i earn money with it. if i had bought an extended warranty on my tundra i would have wasted my moneyThere are other types of insurance that you don't have to have, but are wise to do so like:
Homeowners - if you don't have a mortgage
Collision and comprehensive car insurance - if you don't have a car loan.
Not having homeowners insurance is cray-cray. And it's probably wise to keep your collision and comprehensive car insurance for a few years after your loan is paid off.
