I have to agree with you now. I loved the peace of mind provided by having
an extended warranty (ignorance is bliss), but after being burned by the
failure of what was supposed to be one of the best in the business, I won't
be going that route again. Fortunately however, since I had paid for the
warranty contract with my charge card, I was able to dispute the charge and
wound up with a pro-rated refund for 6 of the 7 years in the original
warranty. Not great, but a heck of a lot better than being out $2800 like I
first thought I was. My advice for anyone else who might be considering an
extended warranty would be to pay in installments rather than all at once.
