Duh - If you get Girlfriend 2.0, and upgrade to Wife 2.0, they should be fully compatible and run extremely well together.

I can see that might work for some. In my case though, I have dependent sub-systems and routines that are specific to my Wife v1.0 operating system. At this point, it would be too costly too upgrade.

Extended warranties, however, are a scam. Chances are by the time your warranty is over you'll be wanting to change the car or add some power to it.
That's not a scam, just a safe bet!

If it is a Factory Warranty it is Not a Scam...Beware of others off brands however. I currently have on on My Suburban and HHR that is a True Bumper to Bumper everything covered including normal maintenance and wear and tear items, used many times for small things and it is a 0$ deductible.
In todays economy, I make good money but still a $400 repair bill takes a huge chunk outta my Golf and Steak eating....lol
Some of the good ones, use the rule of 78's on a refund if you trade or sell or total the car or truck and you get a portion refunded to you.
Some of the bad ones said if you never use it you get a full refund...they are outta business. HMMMMM!
Investigate and compare and do some shopping, cheaper is not always better.
They are well worth the investment, and as a Long time GM for a chevy dealer, when i used to appraise cars I would give a higher trade value to one with a warranty, because all problems usually got fixed right away instead of procrastinating and having that problem effect something else.
But the decision is always yours not mine...

Got the GM Major Guard, aka bumper to bumper, $0 deduc., 7yr/56K. (I average only 5/6K a year) Cost was $1440 @ purchase.I believe it is the right choice for me. My last new car was the 97 Monte Carlo, I only put 87K on. I still be driving my Monte for the snow days.
