you get 4 yrs of free maintenance beginning when the car was first put into service, so you might have some time left. Maintenance is done only as per the car computer. So lets say you are considering an additional 2 years of maintenance, you have to weigh how much maintenance you think you will need considering the kind of mileage you will likely do against the cost. For example, when I bought my CPO, I average about 12k per year. So as per the car computer during the following 2 years I would need at most 2 oil changes and maybe rear brakes, which cost less than the price of the extended maintenance plan.

Hope that makes sense
Thanks for the tip. When I get the car I will check this out with the computer. I still have some time to decide.
