I agree, the extended ones are worthless, but, for instance in MA, if you buy a car from an independent dealer, within a month you are pretty much covered for major defects under the lemon law. So if you did find anything major within that month you could at least take it back and they would have 3 attempts to fix it.
Buying from and individual you have no coverage whatsoever.

So hopefully, depending on your state, you should get that month barrier. I bought an RSX a few years ago and had some VTEC valve trouble, hence I researched into it quite a bit. I also had the extended warranty thrown in, which was pretty worthless - $500 deductible and only covered $50 an hour labor!
