Car Warranty Comparison Price vs Coverage

Too often, consumers only look at price and coverage when evaluating a car warranty. A few other questions will help you, not only get the best coverage and price, but excellent service as well.

Can you choose your own repair facility? Are parts and labor paid at 100%? A cap on labor or a "reasonable and customary" clause will often leave you paying half the bill.

Does the deductible apply to each visit or each repair? Per repair deductibles can be very costly. Are claims paid with a company credit card on the spot? Or, will you be waiting around for a reimbursement? ...You can only find out if you ask.
