86000 mi   Another transmission problem, this time a seeping transmission seal identifed during oil change. Part not in stock so had to return a week later to have it installed - took 2.5 hours and would have cost $250 without extended warranty. Wear of rubber "boots" on trasnmission seals. Normally would have cost about $250-$300 to repair, but $800 extended warranty orginally purchased covered it. Total repairs under extended warranty add up to $1200, which makes it worth it for this car.
