Extended warranty avaliable for purchase?

I just picked up a new 2SSRS and was wondering if you can purchase an extended warranty. With all the electronics doo-dads ,it would be a good idea.

For the last 10 years I have only bought Toyotas , and have always purchased the extended service and warranty package for between $1000 and $2000.

Does GM offer anything like this for the Camaro?

Yes, GM has a GREAT warranty they offer. Did you buy your car from a dealer? Just ask them! If you bought it from a private party then I'll have to do some research for you.

Yes , new from a dealer , but it was the very end of the day , and everyone was exhausted.

Do you know how much the extended costs?

I just talked to the salesman , about $1800 from GM, I think he said 5 year 100k mile.

Ouch.

It's really worth it if any of the electronics go bad.

Being that I have promised myself to KEEP IT STOCK for as long as I own the car ,I think its money well spent.

See,3 of my 4 previous Camaros were all stock , and they never gave me trouble. To me at least ,there is something very appealing about the unaltered factory correct look.

This is by far the most technically advanced sports car I have ever owned. Most of the tech is beyond my basic mechanical understanding and ability to repair.

That makes tinkering a little dangerous [regarding warranty repair/replacement] when 'big brother' knows how many times you open and closed the door.

I am very happy with the performance and styling just the way it is. So I am going to buy the extended warranty.

Nothing wrong with keeping it stock. BTW, they're actually fairly easy to work on.

Financially speaking, the Extended warranty is a poor decision. Insurance companies have invested MILLIONS to research the odds. If the odds weren't in their favor, they wouldn't offer them

Have you kept track of how much you would have spent in repairs out of pocket the last 10 years if you didn't have those warranties? I'd be interested in the numbers based on your personal experience.
