I find I haven't absorbed the details re the prepaid
maintenance. I am assuming that, like the extended warranty,
the dealer will try to sell this at some ridiculous price. Is
it at all worthwhile? What is a good price? Do I have to get
it now? Does the place that offers the $85 extended warranty
also offer this at the best price? Do local dealers ever
match these prices?

Sometimes they do. You have 36,000 miles to make this decision, Jean. Take

Yes, I do for the extended warranty--and I'm glad to have this
knowledge, so I am not talked into an over-priced deal. I was
asking about the maintenance program though.

Lets see, my 5k maintenance just cost me about $0. How much cheaper could
they be? Also, do you know where u will be living for the entire
maintenance contract? Unless it's somehow transferrable or has a
cancellation policy it'd be potentially risky.
(Congrats btw :-))
I have never bought the pre-paid, but I will buy the extended warrantly from
that dealer in W Ma before the 36k hits.

Yes, I don't know that, and it IS relevant, since I plan to
get this serviced someplace other than where I am purchasing it.
Thanks! I saw its twin in a parking lot yesterday and had to
park next to it and speak to its owner, who seemed to love it.
Yes, I plan to do that too. Nice to have that option.
