I'm picking up my 23 ABP Integra on Saturday. I know I'll be facing the sales guy with the entire "Do you want to buy an extended warranty, or wheel and tire protection" questions. I know theres a good amount of dealer markup on these. So have you purchased either....if so what did you pay, and are there dealers out there known for selling them cheap? I scored my BMWZ4 warranty from a dealer in CA.....they were hundreds lower than my local RI dealer(who wouldn't budge..and lost a sale).
Thank you

Congrats on the new car!
A. I don't believe in the value of extended warranties, but I know they make sense for some people/cars. Mechanically, Acura reliability is a step above, so that's another reason to pass.
B. When an extended warranty makes sense, I don't see the point in rolling it into a new car payment. I'd wait until the factory warranty was about to expire, and then shop around. That puts you the buyer in control, as you learned on the Z4 one!

For what it's worth, I'm a fine print person and wary of warranties by nature--I would, however, recommend taking a second look at wheel and tire protection, but only if you intend to keep the stock wheels and tires.

I don't have to parallel park often, and (knock on wood) I haven't had any bad experiences with curbing the wheels on my Integra, but I've curbed the absolute shit out of the wheels on my wife's Pilot ~5 times in 13 months or so. This is why we can't have nice things, I suppose. Each time we've taken it in for service, I've given the dealership a heads up that it'll need wheel repair, and it's included with the service since we got the protection. We've already exceeded the cost of the warranty and still have 4-6 years of coverage left.

When we had our CR-V, the city redid our sidewalks, and we lost 6 tires in ~18 months from stray framing nails. We had the wheel and tire protection in that case as well and ended up with more in new tires than we paid in warranty.

I purchased Acura Care from Honda of Hyannis for $1550. I figured it was small money to protect the car longer term. I also have a '17 CRV with essentially the same motor and AC line ruptured as well as a few other things were covered by Honda Care on that car. I always get the 120k/8 year plan. Had it on my '06 CRV and it paid for itself there as well, its long run out but the car is still on the road.

Thank you! I picked it up beginning of December and so far it’s been going well. My dealer had one incoming and I was lucky to get one on the spot so I didn’t have any extras added, it is just the Elite Aspec Package. I know someone who purchased extended warranty for their mdx and never had to use it, so it was a waste. My cars haven’t had any major issues until the 10 year mark which is when it’s time to get a new car!

I honestly wish i got the tire protection, but its been over 30 days and I procrastinated so I'm out on that, was only like $700 and came with some other things, maybe keyfob replacement or something? Don't remember. Never had tires this "thin" and has me worried.
