I will; I'll have to get something in the next year or two for business.

I did see one thing in your contract that might deserve mentioning:

This Vehicle Service Contract Provides NO Coverage or Benefits for... FAILURE CAUSED BY MISUSE; ABUSE... [or] IF ANY ALTERATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE TO YOUR VEHICLE OR YOU ARE USING, OR HAVE USED, YOUR VEHICLE IN A MANNER NOT RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER.

Depending on how badly they want to weasel out of paying a claim, a simple mod like blocking off some of the grill might be cosidered "alterations to your vehicle." Similarly, EOC coasting or even dropping in an out of neutral at cruising speeds might be considered "misuse" or driving "in a manner not recommended by the manufacturer."

So if you get to a point where you need to file a claim and you have some mods you know aren't related (e.g. a hot air intake where the problem is a transmission failure), you might want to undo the mods before you take the vehicle in, etc.

...we'll have to wait and see until I actually make a claim
Hey, let's hope we wait in vain and you never have to file one!

Not covered by acts of god?! I've never thought of bringing my car in and saying "Oh it wasn't my fault, it was definately an act of god"

I did the same technique today driving to the Gulfport Airport. I paid more attention to RPMs. At 60 MPH the RPMs are about 1800-2000 depending on the grade of the road. When I drop it into Neutral the RPMs dip to about 900-1000. Is this good or bad?

how do you mean? You were'nt accelerating so that'd be using less gas... good right? Do you know that when coming to a stop if you leave it in gear above a certain speed and rpm it cuts out your injectors and you get really good mileage like EOC. We just got back from Gulf Shores. Trip cost ~$21 in gas for 400+ miles. Did you find your mom's stuff?

88HF:

Is it bad for the engine to be a 900-1000 at highway speeds in Neutral? We never found the wallet or the phone, but they were able to fly out. I think we had a kick AZZ time in New Orleans, except for the Krazy Korner incident.

Sorry y'all couldn't find the stuff. Erica wrote some reviews about Krazy Korner on the internet, she said before her review they had 5 stars. F crazy corner! About the transmission thing, i don't know, sounds about the same as EOC as far as disengaging the transmission from the engine, but I guess it depends how it lubricates. Maybe if you make a thread about it someone will know more.
