One thing I am grateful for is that I didn't buy an extended warranty. I believe the warranty would of been expired before I got any work completed.
The way I look at it, all factory defects I encounter will be resolved through warranty work. Once the warranty is expired, I will start doing my own repairs and maintenance on our 5'er, with the exception of a very small amount of items.
After all, I have been doing the upkeep on my houses and my daily driver and classic cars for 40 years, don't see any issues doing the same with the 5'er.
