Is warranty worth it?

Asked by David Sandeman

I HAVE ordered a new Subaru Liberty wagon, which comes with a three-year 100,000km warranty. The dealer has offered me an extended warranty for a further three years or 60,000km for $1400. This car is unlikely to do more than 15,000km a year and will stay in the family for at least eight years. Is it worth taking out the extended warranty?

THE dealer is trying to sell you up by offering you the extended warranty. I wouldn't take it if it was my car. I think it's a waste of money, but you have to consider if you're willing to take the risk that nothing will go wrong with the car in the time it would be covered. I think the odds are fairly low.
