Extended Warranty/Service Contract
My 2011 XC will be one year old next month. It has served me well & the dealer was nice enough to provide me with free scheduled maintenance for the first year. I will be sitting at 13K miles after 1 year & I expect to ride 12-15K year after year. The dealer has suggested that since I ride everyday & don't baby the bike, I would benefit from a maintenance agreement that would last 5 years from date of purchase. It also includes a 5year extended warranty. It will cover all scheduled maintenance & parts except tires & battery and there are no deductibles. They are quoting me a price of $2995, non negotiable. When I bought the bike, based on Vic's reputation, I did not see the value, but it sure has been nice not having any out-of-pocket expense the first year.
I plan on keeping my promise to the wife when I bought the XC that this will be my last motorcycle. I would like to hear any thoughts or suggestions. Also, anyone who has purchased a plan like this, would you mind sharing what it cost you?
Thanks for any comments.
