That reminds me. My wife got an extended warranty on a Sentra before I knew
her (so I had no say in the matter.) Something broke at some point that should
have been covered. It was pure hell getting the dealer to comply with the
terms of the extended warranty. I think I ended up fixing the problem myself
since it was such a hassle. That's another problem with these warranties.
