My situation s that I have been told that the engine will need to be pulled in order to change the timing belt on the PT Cruiser. It's like a $1,000+ job so there is some "justification" to the outlay for an extended warranty. Given that wife loves the car getting rid of it prior to needing the belt is NOT an option. We live in FL and will likely have the vehicle for 10 years if it won't cost us for big out of pocket repairs. Has CR actually ever expressed an opinion on the warranties or made a reco?
