Extended Warranty

Hello All, long time lurker but my first post here . I just picked up a used 2017 MDX base and the dealership sold me extended warranty by Protective Asset protection. I'm debating on cancelling it but thought I'd ask here first. Anyone know if this is just a rip off or is it necessary for the model/year?

Cancel any third party warranty and buy the Acura Care warranty.

There are several dealers online that sell it at a discounted price (unless you're in FL - then you're stuck with buying from the dealer). My favorite is Saccucci Honda although others swear by Curry

https://www.saccuccihondacare.com/vehicle_info.php

https://www.curryacuracare.com

Once purchased, you'll get the paperwork in the mail from Acura. It'll be in the Acura system when you go to the dealership for warranty issues. If you get the $0 deductible, then it'll be handled just like any other warranty work.

Go to the link I included and plug in your car. In a few minutes you'll get an email with the warranty options and pricing.

That said, you really to decide if you really want/need an extended warranty. My wife came close to breaking even with the 6 year 120k warranty on her 2013 Civic. The warranty paid for a bluetooth module and an oil leak. The dealer gave us estimates before they realized we had the warranty (I guess our dealer didn't have lots of Honda Care plans in use) so we know that the costs are roughly the same as the cost of the warranty.

I haven't needed to use the warranty in 75k miles on my TSX wagon yet.

Keep in mind that the Acura factory warranty is 6 years/70K miles on the whole powertrain and 8 years/80K miles on many emissions related components.

As an example, if you purchase a 8 year/100K mile extended plan, you are paying for only 2 years and 30K miles for powertrain coverage.
