Most states allow for a refund within 30 days of purchase. They have your money and they don't want to give it back in claims. My advice is to generally avoid, but it's your decision. I initially bought one when I bought my car, then got a refund after looking in to it. Your car still has some remainder on the factory powertrain warranty too BTW.

Nice looking LGT by the way.
+1, I agree and 2.5k$ for 4 years is, imho, steep. If you really want an extended warranty, check with your local credit union. This advice from I who paid 1.5$ for 7yr/90k extended warranty!!
