Extended Car Warranties Are They Worth It?

Absolutely, if you spend the time to find a reliable warranty company that offers superior coverage and service. So, What do you look for? Here’s a short list:

1. Can you take your vehicle to repair facility of your choice?

2. Is wear and tear of covered components included?

3. Does company pay the claim with a corporate credit card?

4. Does company pay the posted labor rate, with no cap?

5. Is a zero deductible available?

6. Does the policy include a prepaid roadside assistance program, rental reimbursement and lockout protection?

Lastly, keep in mind that the single most profitable item sold by most dealerships, aside from the vehicle itself, is the extended warranty. Auto Service Warranty provides significantly better coverage than dealership plans at 40% to 70% less. Why? The only explanation is the pricey commissions paid staff. Eliminate the middlemen and contact Auto Service Warranty for superior coverage at the best price.

Is My Extended Warranty Contract Renewable?

Yes, service contracts with Auto Service Warranty may be renewed providing that your vehicle meets current underwriting guidelines. And, should you want to sell your vehicle, you also have the option of transferring your service agreement to a private party at any time during the term of the agreement. Understanding these options should help you determine which plan is best for you based on time and mileage.

However, keep in mind that you will always get the very best rates by choosing the longest extended warranty available when you originally purchase. Prices will likely increase between the time of your original purchase and renewal. Lastly, you may find that the age of your vehicle or the mileage prohibits total car coverage eligibility when you decide to renew which would be a good time to consider a powertrain warranty.
