I've been down both roads... I've gone with the winch and only used it a handful of times (but glad I had it)... AND... I've gone with the extended warranty and never used it. Unfortunately, I think the extended warranty works in the favor of the dealer/manufacturer and not the owner (kinda like that 200,000 mile warranty on your car... really? who keeps their car that long?). It's a judgment call.
I stand corrected. I'm envious, I've never owned anything that long. The only reason I've been in my job this long is because I own it :wink2:Hehheh . . that would have been me with my last car . . . a 2003 Honda Accord coupe. When I sold it I think it had 203,000+ miles on the odometer. Decent car, but I was looking for something a little more reliable as I had a couple minor issues that made me think it was time to replace it. Of course the warranty had expired well before this point.
