I decided to hold on to my moneay and purchase online at some point prior to the 3 year warranty expiration date. Live/work close to dealer and the offer a shuttle service.
I think this is the philosophy I will go with if I purchase one.
I'm already outlaying enough coin with the down payment and tax that it doesn't really make sense to purchase it now versus towards the end of my bumper-to-bumper. Not gonna break into my 'rainy day' fund for something I can purchase later with little to no detriment to overall costs. If anything, my cash is making money for me while I wait.
