Hey Everyone,

My name is Chris and Im from California. Just picked up my white 2017 Hatchback LT yesterday with 10 miles on it. I think I found a great deal as I was looking everywhere and no one wanted to go under 21,000 for the car. Finally found a dealer that needed it moved and offered it up for 14,225k + 1,950k (100k mile warranty)

Wondering if i made out good on this deal?

Just ordered thees in :wub::wub::wub:
Alloy wheel Rim Wheel Auto part Tire

Welcome.

Sounds like a very good deal on the car. I'm not so sure about the 40k warranty extension.

The 100k warranty covers bumper to bumper from electrical all the way down to the AC with no deductible. He wanted 2950.00 for the warranty, told him its 1500 his cost for it. If he wants a few hundred extra dollars ill go 1,950 for it lol

Sounds like a 64K or 7 year extension if you ask me? People have some crazy misconception that a Powertrain warranty is all the coverage you need

You couldn't have done any better and that price is right in the ballpark for a 10 year/100K contract with no deductible, especially when they discounted your purchase by thousands. The only question I would need to ask you is who issued the contract, the name of the company can make quite a difference. In California this purchase is regarded as Insurance and can only be purchased in a couple of ways. I see you answered then Deleted your response, CNA National which seems to be a fine company. If you haven't finalized the deal perhaps go with the current GMEPP or the former GMPP which can be bought through Ally. Otherwise you still should be good!

WARNING! If you're a resident in the state of California, beware of any company (that is not a dealership or manufacturer) who is trying to sell you a Vehicle Service Contract, as these agreements are not likely to be honored when you need them.

Make sure you are dealing with a licensed insurance agency and that you are specifically purchasing Mechanical Breakdown Insurance.

Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBI)
As stated in its name, Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBI) is considered an actual insurance product. As a result, MBI can only be offered by a licenced insurance agent and is highly regulated by the California Department of Insurance. It is the ONLY type of extended vehicle coverage permitted in California, except for those contracts sold by either the dealership or manufacturer.

Sounds like an awesome deal. I would trade in my '14 for a hatch if I could get it for that price with a sunroof. The Gen 2 style is not my favorite, but I do like the hatch. I saw one on the way home tonight and I thought it looked great on the road.

Thanks. I will check it out. My '14 is gold (Champagne), so it wouldn't be so bad.
