Should I buy the extended warranty from my dealer?

Dealer Extended Warranty vs. Direct Purchase Warranty

If you are buying a used car from a dealer, the salesperson will almost always try to get you to buy an extended warranty at the closing. Unless you've done your homework, you may end up paying twice what you need to for half the coverage you deserve.

The first thing you should know when buying a car is that you don't have to buy an extended warranty at the time of sale (you can buy an extended warranty plan direct from the warranty company after the fact)—you'll save yourself the dealer markup, plus you'll have more time to mull your options.
