I understand that there is still an 8k service charge, at time of purchase, for those living outside a service area. Can anyone say how long this coverage is for; e.g., the life of the car, 5 years...? Does it only cover getting the vehicle to a service center, but not cover any actual maintenance? If a person sold their vehicle, would there be any reimbursement of this charge and if so, would it or how would it be prorated? If a person pays for this coverage and a service center is subsequently opened that is convenient to them, would this charge, or a portion of it be refunded?
