Default Extended Warranty Question

As my factory warranty expires in November of this year, I have started looking for quotes for an extended warranty contract. I contacted the dealership where I will have most of the work done as I wanted to work with one that they use there. To provide a quote, they are telling me they have to inspect the car at a cost of $150. This seems odd to me. Has anyone else ever run into this?

Default search fidelity here

There are several providers who require no inspection and will be 2x less than dealer for the same product. Fidelity platinum seems to be the product most folks here like.

No, it is not odd, at least with Fidelity. If you time it correctly, you can use the report from your last service. I have been using the local P dealer for all my maintenance work. So, I timed the latest service to be just before the expiration of P warranty, and used the invoice from that service to apply for the Fidelity warranty

I bought my Fidelity warranty from the dealer that services my car and all she did was verify the mileage.

Depends on the dealer that is selling it to you. The one local guy around here wanted my car for inspection. Michael Jourdan who is popular around here does not require one.

Several threads have discussed the topic already so search for those and you will get all the information you need, but to answer your question inspections are sometimes required depending on who you buy from.

I have read through those, but never saw anything where they were going to charge for an inspection. I get wanting to see the car, and it will be at the dealer here shortly for the 4/40 service, but charging for the inspection seems out of the ordinary.
