Extended Warranty?

I've been getting letters the past few months about purchasing an extended warranty on my 3. The look really legit, and actually look like they came from Mazda. Until, you read closer and notice that its insurance companies like Nationwide etc. Does anyone use these? Are they legit or way too costly? I'm thinking if I wanted to extend the warranty it would be better to do so through the dealership I bought the car from. Just wondering if anyone else has gotten these letters/offers?

Re: Extended Warranty?

i think it's common for new car buyers to get those solicitations. while a "better deal" can be found from 3rd parties, compared to Mazda, you should be aware that many of these companies are scams and they don't pay. Do your research before you buy (if you're going to).

Gotcha. Just checking, seems like I've been getting solicitations for all kinds of junk lately. :?
