Had my first use of the extended warranty (6 year/100,000 miles bought at delivery through LR/Assurant for $3,575) today, so figured I would keep a running tally here for my own interest as well as to provide information for others deciding whether to get the extended warranty or those looking at pre-owned vehicles to get an idea of one vehicle's experience over 50,000 miles.

As a caveat, my vehicle is not highly optioned (Meridian signature, tow package, black sliding roof, 22" wheels, and uh I think that's it), so I'll dodge a lot of issues that may occur with electronic wizardry. With things like heads up display, blind spot monitoring, soft close doors, etc it makes an extended warranty cost benefit analysis easier in my mind. (Cue the meme here of the guy pointing to his head--it can't break if you don't have it included!)

The current plan is to keep the vehicle to somewhere in the mid to high 90k mileage range, depending on when the next-generation full-size/sport come out, so I have no doubt there will be more entries to come.

Good thread idea, may start one for myself. If I am understanding correctly your warranty extends past the OEM/Factory warranty for 2 years/50k miles, correct? And you currently exceeded mileage (50k) before age, which is why you are now in the extended warranty period. And on October 2021, or at 100k miles, is when it expires, whichever comes first?

Does the LR/Assurant warranty have any exclusions that look concerning?

Yes the extended warranty includes the factory warranty so it's an extension of 2 years and 50k miles for my case which would be either October 2021 or 100k miles, whichever comes first.

I drive about 17,500 miles a year, so the warranty will definitely be up due to mileage before age.

I didn't see any concerning exclusions, and since it's an LR extended warranty, the dealer takes care of applying for warranty claims, etc.
