that happened to me.  in las vegas.  it failed in the extreme sun and  
heat in a parking lot.  $300.  extended warranty person was a BITCH on  
the phone.  after 911 those warranty companies, many who were  
insurance based, went out of business.  they sold things off, like the  
warranty converage divisions.  it was some jackass in some office  
somewhere wo said "it's glass.  glass isn't covered.  read your  
agreement.  goodbye."  anyway, yours is toast.

i have a cherry set of floor mats from that model/year, i think.
