2011 cts-v wagon
Should .V owners purchase ext. Warr. At purchase time or wait and see in lite of 4year bumper to bbumper and how much will it cost if you wait?
I've had some success in the past negotiating with the F&I manager on the price of an extended warranty at the time of purchase. It's like any other option. As you say, the profit margin is high enough that there could very well be "wiggle room".Never buy the warranty when you buy it. It's the most marked up and profit making purchase the dealer can sell you.
If you decide you want it, shop around and buy it after the fact.
Some might decide to mod their car later so getting the ext warranty might be a waste of money. I already did some mods (cam, pulley etc..) so my warranty is pretty much toast at the moment.Should .V owners purchase ext. Warr.

You can purchase it when you buy the car, if you dont and decide you want it later it will almost certainly cost you more. Plus if you purchase it with the car and change your mind 6 months down the road you can cancell it and get a refund of almost full purcahse price. Thats what I did with my denali, got a nice cheque for $2200.00 that came in handy when buying the V.
Huh, was not aware of that. The way it was explained to me was you can cancel it anytime and get a refund that I thought was cash. Guess they try to make it sound better when trying to make a sale. Thanks for clearing that up.You only get a check in hand if the vehicle is paid off or you paid cash for the extended warranty. If you finance it with the deal then any funds left from cancellation go to the finance company and applied towards principal.
