When I purchased a new Honda CRV from Reliance Honda in Lake Jackson, Tx they offered me a warranty backed by Gulf States Toyota in Houston
I purchased the warranty because they put in writing that if I did not use the warranty during the six year period the purchase price of the warranty would be refunded by the dealership.
Two months later Reliance Honda was purchased by Honda of Lake Jackson, who will of course not honor this guarantee.
Gulf States Toyota would not refund the entire amount of purchase as they shoulld have since the warranty had not gone into effect.
Never, ever purchase an extended warrenty, it's only a good deal for them.
