The cost of getting a warranty after you have owned a car for x amount of time will be next to impossible. Even if, the cost would be outrageous for only one year. Maybe even more then the necesary work that has to be done to your car,

Spend your money wisely and fix what HAS to be fixed and do what you can yourself. OR get a new car and deal with that warranty

I wouldn't, not with these cars. You haven't had any major internal work, just a motor mount, and some small things go bad from what i remember steve. If anything happens you, or someone in the chi-town area will most likely be able to fix it on your own, or with our help.

Agreed, the value is not there...

Take the value of the car and compare it to the value of the warranty, I just don't see it

But if you have $700 to $900 clams hangin around, by all means.
