<<I am in need of a new car and will need to get one by August of this year, when the warantee on my current car runs out.

As I mentioned to another poster (who also suggested I post this message here), My current car is 8 years old and is starting to "act up" and I am not comfortable driving a car without a warantee.

I just don't feel it's worth it to pay an extra $2500 for a warrantee on a car this old with almost 85K miles on it.

If I'm being irrational, please let me know.

I would consider this issue with a lot of care before buying a new car.

I wouldn't pay $2500 for a warrentee either, but neither would I pay $25,000-30,000 to get one.

WHY are you uncomfortable owning a car lacking a warrentee?

Gnerally speaking, it's much cheaper to keep running an older car and paying for repairs than buying new. Do you have a mechanic you trust to do repairs on your car?
