What has not been mentioned is how handy are you with a wrench? If you can fix things yourself then flying without a parachute is prefectly acceptable. If you are like me (a mechanical klutz) you're better off with a warranty.
Len, you are a frequent and knowledgeable contributor and I enjoy reading your comments. I happen to be one of those few folks you mentioned for whom these warranties have paid off. That's the reason I am a proponent of them. I am not arguing with you, merely expanding on my other post.
By the way, I do not buy extended warranties for anything else. I still maintain that a good warranty, preferably the CPO or new car extended one from Mercedes, is a good insurance policy. And I know you're correct in your assertion that most people lose. Otherwise the warranty companies would be out of business.
