2016 Fuel Economy Reimb...$750 Debit Card or Extended Warranty...Which One???

Looking for feedback on Buick's offer for a $750 debit card or a 48-month/60,000-mile protection plan for 2016 Enclave owners because of misstated fuel economy numbers.

I would definitely opt for the warranty.

Repairs to my 08, after the warranty ran out have not been cheap

If you are planning to keep the car for many years, I would agree to take the extended warranty. But, just make sure that it covers well and has a reasonably long expiration.

Extended warranty. But do ask where the extended warranty is from though.

C.R.E.A.M

Cash rules everything around me, quick, get the money, dollar dollar bill y'all.

Isn't this like your employer asking you to cash out your pension when you're only in your 40's? Meaning, they're determining a rate at which they can pay less for a current obligation? Kinda like a extended maintenance plan? Or life insurance?

Is that an extra 4 years and 60K or total? BTB is already 4 years 50K. If it's that latter, I'd take the $750 and run.

Decline it and take the $750 cash. It essentially provides a potential 10,000 extra miles of coverage.
