Default SOA Extended Warranty Pricing.

I've been searching for the best prices for the 7/70k warranty. All of the dealers that I requested quotes, quoted me $1700-2200. I came across an ebay listing from a dealer selling it for $1249. The listing says 2010 Forrester warranty. However, I have a 2009 2.5i. It doesnt seem like a big deal since both cars share a lot of the parts between models.

What do you all think?

This is for Gold warranty with 0 Deductible.

you can probably do a little better than those prices by haggling with dealers, a very good deal would be about 2/3 retail, these are closer to 75%. Added Security warranties are the same no matter the year or model, except there is a surcharge for turbos

I made my money back twice over on my 98 legacy (a/c pretty much replaced completely) but barely broke even on my 02 WRX. Still have a year to go on my 06 Tribecas and have used up only maybe 1 grand of the 1600 or so I paid but the rattling noise for which they just replaced the control arms is still there so I may still break even or get my moneys worth! IMO the dealers give you better service if you have Added Security.

I think it depends on how long you think it'll take to reach 70k miles with your driving habits.

Having had my car (2008 Impreza Outback Sport) only 2.5 years and I have over 76k miles on it, I'm glad I didn't spend $1,500 - $2,000+ on an extended warranty. I would have blown the money and never gotten its value back. All of the Subaru's I've owned have been extremely dependable with few to no issues.

Now, with my wife's new 2010 Nissan Maxima SV, we went ahead and purchased the 7 year/100k mile warranty, because of all the maxed out electronics in the car. If any of those fail, I'd rather have the warranty. She doesn't drive a fraction of what I drive, so time with wear & tear will be the issue. On one hand I hope we didn't blow the money. On the other hand, I hope we never have serious issues with the car, but it'll be nice to know we have the warranty.

I paid 1650 for a 6/80k, my way of thinking is its only 20 more a month so that is worth it to me to have the piece of mind for the next 80k

When your car hits 6 years old or 80k miles (based on the start date of when you bought the car), that's when the warranty expires. Not an additional 6 years or 80k on top of what the car already has when the warranty is purchased (and usually needs to be purchased before the end of the factory warranty).

So, if your car is 2.5 years old and has 35k miles (on a 3 year / 36k mile factory warranty) when you purchase a 6 year / 80k mile warranty, then you only have 3.5 years or 45k miles remaining... whichever comes first.

What do you all think?

This is for Gold warranty with 0 Deductible.
I bought my first Subaru in the fall of '96 ('97 Outback Sport) and did not buy the extended warranty. That car went 13 years and 350K, no major problems that would have been covered by the warranty. Stuff wore out, but that wouldn't count anyway.

I bought my second Subaru in '09 ('09 Outback Sport) and again, did not buy the extended warranty. I've put 32K on the car since March of '09. Being that it was only the second year for the GRs, I figured I would keep a close eye out for other owners having warranty issues, and when I approached 36K I would re-consider the extended warranty.

Here is what I've found; For the '09 non-turbo Imprezas, the only common issues I have heard about were the same paint issues that the WRX owners have experienced (with mixed luck about getting that covered) and a few folks having their AC compressor break, and getting them replaced under warranty.

That's it. So based on that, I'm not getting the extended warranty. Overall, I think it's a waste of money, but with a relatively new model car, I figured I would consider it this time. My AC compressor shows no signs of quitting, and I've been using it a lot. Even if my AC compressor blows, then it's cheaper to replace it than it is to buy the warranty, so no cost savings there.

Also, remember that even though the GR is "new", the drivetrain is not. The 2.5L engine and either transmission are old Subaru technology. They've been around for years and have had a lot of time to have any bugs worked out. They "new" parts are the body, interior, and rear suspension, and those would be outside the scope of many extended warranties.

As the 2.5i is all but indentical to the Outback Sport, I wouldn't bother. That said, if you are more comforatble with the coverage, then it might be worth it for the peace of mind.

I wouldn't pay that much unless it was a 100k mile warranty. I remember back around 2004-2005 a dealership senting a letter offering that for $1,250 or something around there.

Paint issues. Yeah! Me too!

I've never had a car's paint chip as much as my '08 Impreza. I've owned 2 Honda's, 1 VW, and 2 other Subaru's and they never chipped like this one. My hood has so many chip marks/gauges, it's not even funny. The passenger side A-pillar has a couple new chips as of last week. I received my first chips less than a month into ownership. Subaru gave me a "same color paint pen". Really? That's gotta look awful - I've never used it.

If you are looking to buy an extended warranty from Subaru it is best done BEFORE your factory 3yr/36k mile basic coverage warranty is up. After that they generally tack an addition $500-$1,000 onto the price.

No. Once you are passed the 3/36k you can not purchase an SAS Policy. You are stuck with whatever warranty is out there.

Your best bet here is if you have a local dealer that you like to deal with, go talk to the service writes and ask them what aftermarket warranties they deal with and prefer.

Or find one who happens to post on here.

Here are a few that I have worked with that imo are pretty good.

****Disclaimer*******
I am sure there are some people out there that have had issues with the companies I listed. However, there is a difference between your feelings and what you feel is or isn't covered and how vs. having a **** warranty company that offers no human interaction or solicits for your business.
I have ran into those where everything was done by a fax and a checklist they faxed to me which didn't even have the customers concern and nobody I could call.
Stay away from companies that solicit to you. A well known company doesn't need to go out and earn your business, their reputation brings the business to them.
