Hello Fellow 2015 TLX Owners,

It has come to be that time and my extended warranty expires in roughly a week's worth of driving (1000km's). I have a two part question for this thread;

1. Do I extend my coverage, I'm looking for the opinions of others based on my driving habits?

2. What do I want to look for and try to get fixed at my service appointment this week?

I purchased the car second hand in April, 2017, with approximately 40,000 km's on it and have since driven roughly 60,000 km's. When I bought the car it came with 100,000 km's of warranty coverage with the option to extend the coverage. At my last service I got a price for another 100,000 km's of coverage, 7 years 200,000 km's. The price I got was $3078+tax. Unfortunately I will chew through that coverage in less than 2 years. So my question for the group is, in the next two years does anyone think it's likely I will get $3078 worth of work done that would be covered under warranty? Also, what do we feel is a fair negotiated price for the warranty extension?

If I chose to not extend my coverage, I have one last service under warranty next week. What should I specifically look for before my service? As it stands right now I don't have any pressing issues. 2nd to 3rd shifts are a bit rough in the cold, but that seems to be standard with the V6.

Thank you all for your help

I'd get the techs to look at the transmission for sure I just bought a 15' V6 Base with 21,260 miles and mine was shifting hard in 2nd and 3rd. I kept insisting until they dropped in a new transmission under warranty. I've read that the 9-Speed ZF is unpredictable.

As for spending the $3078 I would say its a hit or miss IMO. If you have kept the car up to date on its regular maintenance I think it should be good.


My 2 cents, hope it helps. :)

Its all how you feel if you will sleep better at night, then get it. IMHO I never purchase the extended warranty... and thus far from all my cars never needed it. Its a Honda so the odds are in your favor.

Agreed! Plus the 4 yr/48000 mile warranty is a full year and 12000 miles better than most manufacturers new car warranties.
