    I bough a ‘18 Crosstec today. Thanks for your help. I had asked about the discount on the extended warranty. They advised the discount had already been negotiated as part of the car pro package. Is that correct? Thanks.
    This was the second vehicle with the carport.

      John, many of my dealers do upfront discounts on warranties, others do not unless requested. I am sure they are being truthful. Hope you enjoy the Subaru, that was a great choice! Thanks for listening to the show.
