Just bought an 09 Odyssey... Dealer pushing for extended warranty
The part that I need help with is on the extended warranty. It's NOT through Honda. It is through a company callled Alpha. The dealer says that it's a zero deductible bumper to bumper warranty and that all issues will be dealt with directly between them and the Honda dealership. They are quoting a price of about 1870 for 6 years or 100,000 miles.
The sales guy started telling us that we WILL have to have work done on the power door motors, the engine mounting bolts, CV boots, among a few other things.
I have read threads here on Edmonds about problems with the transmissions in the 09.
Personally, I'm with Clark Howard and believe that extended warranties are all about money in the dealers pockets, and are not in the best interest of the consumer.
I was wondering if these things that are "sure" to happen are really a ticking time bomb like he wanted me to believe.
If I need to get it to cover myself, I will, but it just seems like a suckers game to me.
What do you folks think?
