Consumer Reports surveys readers on repair history of their appliances. I think Frigidaire refrigerators have done well in them, but it's been a while. I don't have a subscription so can't see the whole article, but they mention in the teaser that certain Samsung and LG models are trouble. Ice-m...

re: New car totaled - value for insurance. - Twenty 49 on 9/20/23 at 8:24 am
I have mentioned a fear of this scenario when the dealer pushes an extended warranty. You pay $$$ up front for it, it does not kick in until after the manufacturer warranty term, then you don't even have the car that long before it is totaled. Dealers have said that the premium would be refunded...
