We didn't get the extended warranty on our Compass and I can't actually remember how much it was either but I thought I would tell you about when we bought our new GMC 2500hd a few months ago. They tried to sell us the extended warranty and we declined but then the guy could all of a sudden offer it for $200 cheaper. He may have been able to sell it to us for even less than that. From what we could tell is that he, the financial dealings guy (w/e they are called) must get a cut as well as the salesman because he was going to ask our salesman if he could go lower but he was busy. We still didn't buy it though. So the point of my long, rambling story is...say no at first, even if you really want to buy it, because I bet you could get it cheaper if you hold out a bit and if DC works the same way as GM. I hope this helps.
