How many of your guys have an extended warranty purchased on your GA's? I have one that costed an extra $1000 with a $100 deductable. Does that sound like a good price? Im just asking b/c the cars still under factory warranty and I want to know if I should cancel the extended one. TIA

How long is the coverage in months and miles? I would say that with these cars, you will need the extended warranty at some time. Hell I just had $1200 worth of work done last week, my cost, $200. My extended warranty has more than paid for itself.

I bought an extended warranty through WarrantyGold.com. I have 7 yrs or 100,000 miles. I paid $1050.00 and I have $0 deductible. I haven't used it yet, but I will post my experience when I do.

Here is my experience with extended warrenty.
see thread: http://www.grandamgt.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=8866&highlight=extended

I think it is worth it for our cars.

Some others have gotten after-market extended warrenties cheaper than through GM or the dealer.
But not sure how after-market warrenty services are?

I just had my intake gasket replaced at 45,000 under my extended warrenty. I got mine through the dealership it is 100,000 mile or 7 years, with a disapearing deductable. It has more than payed for itself. The only thing is that when I got the intake done they told me that my head gasket was seeping and the warrenty co. wouldn't cover seepage only leakage. So when the head gasket starts to leak it is time to use the warrenty again. I think that the extended warrenty for the Grand Am's is well worth is with as much intake problems that I have heard about.

Seepage, leakage? They have the same definition... I would raise holy hell if someone told me that... lol

Anyone have a policy with Warranty Direct? I am thinking about getting a 4 year, 100,000 mile warranty from them.

LOL... no need to get the dictionary out.

And what's the difference between this:

to flow or pass slowly through fine pores or small openings

and this?:

to enter or escape through an opening usually by a fault or mistake

Yeah... there's a "slight" difference, but not when it comes to giving **** to a dealership if it's NOT supposed to happen (see the second definition of leakage... if seepage is not supposed to happen, then it must be leakage, according to the definitions you posted!)...

Please note, what I quoted were the first definitions of each - from YOU.

Any questions? Don't try to start a flame war by telling me to "get a freakin' dictionary"... first of all, it's stupid (and you left off the apostrophe at the end of "freakin'" - were you missing YOUR dictionary?), and secondly, you will lose. 'Nuff said.

P.S. Let me know if you need an interpreter next time you decide to read the Dictionary. I only charge $50 an hour for that...

<edit>You might also like to note that in this case, both are intransitive verbs...</edit>

I also have the 5yr/75000mile warranty, paid ~$1000 and it's already more than paid for itself.
Now my paint is bubbling in a few random places on the drivers side (front and rear 1/4 panels, top of trunck) after only 3 years!!! Any chance they'll cover that under warranty??
If I weren't WAY over on mileage, almost ~51K, I'd turn my car in. I have the 6 year Smartbuy - you can turn it in after 3 years like a lease.

I apologize if this info was posted on another thread...I'm having a difficult time figuring out the threads...but anyway...I bought an extended warranty through e-solutions.com. The warranty company is Warranty America. It is a 100,000k/7 year bumber-bumber deal for $900.00 after haggling. 0 deductable. I checked out the company's BBB rating and didn't see any problems there and I haven't had to use it yet. Does anyone else have this warranty?

I have Warranty Direct on my alero for 6 years 100k miles. Its pretty much their bumper to bumper coverage. I have not used it yet (my car only has 31k on it), but I am very sure it will come in handy in the next few years. I done alot of research on the company before I bought it.
