    extended warranty cancel?

    Can you cancel your extended warranty? I thought I read people say you can call up and cancel it and they will refund you the money. I had the 100k 7years warranty and I know I wont EVER use it and that was $870 so I can call them and say I dont want it and they will refund that money, I only have 500mile son the car. I will never own the car long enough or drive it enough to ever get even close to that.

    Yes, you should be able to cancel it....though I am not sure if they would cut you a check for the funds, or simply apply that to your loan amount (if it is through Subaru Motors Financial that is)

    They should give you a check back for it. Subaru buys it from another company. Find the info in your owner's manual packet or call the dealer and ask for it. You should get a 100% refund since you never made it to the warranty period.

    You can cancel before a specified period./mileage.The period should be indicated on your contract.

    I cancelled mine after having the car for a few months, they won't cut a check if you have a loan

    they won't cut a check if you have your loan through Subaru.. If you got a loan from another source, they should (I think - assuming you didn't finance the cost of the extended warranty).

    I bought the 7 year 100K for my first WRX. The warranty was cheap compared to the cost of keeping it valid. I didn't buy this warranty when I got my '11 STI. Not to mention I had upgraded the turbo, exhaust, and IC before the car hit 50K and completely voided it anyway.

    I bought a WRX PBP Sedan in January and sent in a notarized letter requesting a cancellation of the extended warranty to Subaru about eight weeks ago. It took two weeks for Subaru to CC me on a letter to my dealer, Napleton's Schaumburg Subaru in Illinois, telling them to forward the refund to my leinholder, in this case Subaru Finance/Chase.

    In the six weeks since, the amount has yet to come off my loan. Since the dealer is involved, and Napleton's completely sucks, I'm not sure entirely how long it's going to take for that refund to show.

    FYI, Napleton's charged me 2,100 for six year, 60,000, and gave me some bull about it including prepaid maintenance (which it does not). I started looking around and realized I got ripped off. I'm not surprised though, in hindsight I'd have gone to pretty much any other dealer. They did offer the best deal, but the 300 bucks I saved by going through them wasn't worth the hassle of dealing with a dealership that is less scrupulous than the usual unscrupulous dealership.

    This happened to me when I bought the gap insurance at the dealer. I bought it since I didn't inform my insurance company ahead of time - and canceled the next day because Subaru charged $700 one-time vfor what my insurance company charged $5/year.

    I submitted the forms, but the dealer never refunded the money (it was supposed to go against my loan with Subaru). Since I paid this portion as part of a deposit with my American Express - I disputed the charge with them as it was clear the dealer was never going to resolve this. In the end, I got the money refunded on my AMEX because the dealer refused to discuss the situation with them...

    What is it with Subaru dealers?
