We bought an extended warranty. Can't remember the price off hand. We did it because it is a first year model. But usually they say it is just for suckers LOL. We each have to decide based on facts and on your personality and your finances.
Looks like the 'C' has a 6 year powertrain warranty and a 4 year "Bumper to Bumper" warranty?We bought an extended warranty. Can't remember the price off hand. We did it because it is a first year model.
That's about all the longer the body will last Upstate. :winkConsistent with my prior two vehicles, I will keep my MKC for about 10 years.
That's a good time frame to stick by, for me it's all about getting rid of a newer vehicle before it's warranty is up since I hate the thought of what could go wrong and what it could cost.I will go about 150,000 or 6 years or so before either my needs change or there are large repairs to fear that drive me to another car. When I moved from New England to the SE, my annual mileage shot up to about 20k or so per year.
Having a classic pickup truck and an old convertible keeps the mix interesting so the daily driver does not have to take all the miles and beatings. Those are investments, the MKC is a daily car-and I like to drive most of the life out of them.
We all know that the finance manager's office is where the dealership really makes the money. After I declined the extended warranties, the guy didn't even bother wasting his breath on trying to up-sell the detailing packages. I'm thinking that there is a lot of "fine print" in those extended warranties such that they don't want people to see them until AFTER they've actually paid for them.Hey Golfer, those finance guys are the true " used car salesman". Fast talking, never look you in the eye, shifting while they talk. I didn't buy the EW - and my wife wanted to - because I couldn't trust a guy with such a weak presentation.I just figured I was in for a bait and switch deal.
