What level did you get (base care, premium care, etc...) and how much did you pay? Is it worth it?

I got PremiumCare, 7 years, 60k miles for $835. Shop around on-line (starts with F) to get the best price.

Is it worth it? I had a Mazda once, the ABS computer failed. $2k to replace it. I had another Mazda once. Transmission literally blew up and a piece of a gear punched a hole through the transmission housing. $5k to replace it. I had Extended Warranties on both and paid nothing. I have not had any Mazda's since then. ;)

With the amount of electronics in today's cars and the cost to replace these specialized computers, you have to decide how lucky you feel. Almost any failure of an electronic component out of warranty will more than pay the cost of the warranty. Another way to look at it: I have homeowners insurance on my house. If my house burns down they will buy me another one. Helps me sleep at night. Will I feel ripped off if in 10 years my house didn't burn down or will I feel like I paid a reasonable price for peace of mind?
