No. They didn't say we had to purchase the warranty. They just scared my spouse with talks of crazy expensive repairs to their fine automobile that they were trying to sell us.
I wanted a new toy instead of the Outback XT I had been driving and my wife wanted added security. I probably didn't even listen to the warranty talk at the time. I went to the dealership to buy a loaded STI but, I found out I was $4k upside down on my Outback! By the end of that very long day I was leaving with my consolation prize no matter what! Doh
