I'm wondering what everyone thinks of this upgrade. Is it a good investment or is it unnecessary? Any feedback regarding this would be very welcome & helpful.

Well, we've established thats a terrible price.

But do keep in mind that you have 4 years/50k miles to decide to buy the plan...NO need to buy it now.

if you do buy it and sell the car or it is totaled, you lose the $$$

It isnt "extra 3 years", it is only two years.

Finally you should really unbderstand what the plan covered- for example if you make it 3 years and 45k miles until you do your first brake job, then the 'plan' will likely run out before the next brake job. You're paying $2495 for two oil cjhanges and a brake fluid flush!

Anyway, wait for a while and see how it plays out.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
