My '99 Ody is in its 35,079 miles already. Now Im contemplating about 7/100k/0 extended warranty that Honda Care provides.

I have read quite a number of tranny failures and replacements...I remember that someone had to pay a (couple of) thousand(s) to have a "refurbished" tranny replaced in an Ody which was still under warranty.


My main reason to even consider Honda Care is the fear of tranny failure. If some day my tranny failed...would I have to pay the full or partial, or would the Honda Care take care of me without (further) touching my wallet.

I dont know how to put my questionS in words, ...Is it smart to base the purchase of a $875+$60 warranty on the fear of tranny failure??? AARRrrggghhh!!! I'm so torn in between... help!!!

I welcome your opinion. Thanks.

The simple answer is that you are betting that you will have the need of a warranty for something that will break on your Ody and Honda is betting that something won't break, thus they are making $800 on the bet.
