1) What is an extended auto warranty affect my vehicle ?
An extended warranty is an agreement between the vehicle owner and Warranty
Company, obligating the warranty company to pay for repairs covered by the
contract for a specific period of time.
With an extended auto warranty you are protecting yourself from the
unexpected expense of mechanical failure, in the event something goes wrong with your vehicle. More...
2) What exactly does an extended warranty cover?
Know what's covered -- and what's not covered -- by the extended auto
warranty you're considering. Does the contract cover breakdown as well as wear
and tear? Under a "breakdown" warranty, coverage is extended only to parts that
break. You can obtain extended warranties for the car: More...
3) Why do I need an extended auto warranty?
Since even simple mechanical repairs of your vehicle can cost into the thousands and
these costs are rising rapidly; protecting your investment in your vehicle should not
be taken lightly. More...
4) Why should I purchase an extended warranty now?
Whether you own a new or older vehicle, an extended auto warranty will
provide you with peace-of-mind protection regarding costly mechanical repairs
that can happen at any time during the life of your vehicle. More...
5) What about the deductible?
Fully investigate a policy's deductible before signing on the dotted line.
Consider not only its amount, but also whether it's per visit or per repair.
With a per-visit deductible, each visit to the shop will run you a fixed amount,
regardless of how many parts are repaired; a per-repair deductible applies to
each serviced part. What sounds like a minor difference may, under certain
circumstances, have a major impact on your wallet. More...
6) What type of auto warranty can I buy?
Power train Warranty: Covers the engine, transmission, and other parts
of the Drive train only, which is defined as the 29 parts of the vehicle through
which oil flows. These are the parts least likely to fail.
The average vehicle contains thousands of parts. As it does not cover the
majority of the components of a vehicle, the Power train Warranty is truly not
an extended warranty. More...
7) Can I still obtain extended auto warranty coverage?
Many consumers do not realize that even after the manufacturer's warranty has
expired, their vehicle is still eligible for extended coverage. You can
generally receive coverage on vehicles that have less than 100,000 miles on the
odometer. A vehicle out of its original warranty is more apt to have mechanical
failure compared to a newer vehicle. More...
8) How does the claims process work?
The top warranty companies work like this: If your vehicle breaks down or is
in need of a repair, take it or have it towed to any licensed repair facility
and present your service agreement to the Service Department. After they
diagnose the problem, they will call the claims administrator
toll-free and receive repair authorization for all your covered repairs less a
deductible where applicable. More...
9) Why do vehicle dealers sell extended warranties?
vehicle dealers make a
profit on the extended warranty, sometimes as much as they make on the
car! Buyers can negotiate the price of the warranty just as they did the
price of the vehicle. The working assumption is that dealers pay about 50 percent less
than the asking price for the warranty. A buyer should not pay more than
two-thirds of the asking price. More...
10) How do I resist the pressure to buy right away?
It is not necessary to
buy the extended warranty right away. Buyers usually have 12 months
after a new vehicle purchase to buy a warranty. Get the time limit from the
company selling it. More...
11) What if I decide I do want an extended warranty?
The warranty need not
be purchased from the dealer. Check a credit union or auto insurance
dealer for a warranty program, sometimes known as mechanical breakdown
insurance. Check out the service contract or vehicle warranty companies.
12) Extended Warranty Prices?
Shop around for the
best price and the best coverage. If the warranty has a $100 deductible
for each service or repair, why bother? More...
13) Extended Warranty Dealers?
Buyers can even shop
different dealerships by calling the finance managers at the other
stores. A buyer can tell the dealer who sold the vehicle that he's going to
check with the competition to find the best price. More...
14) What is a Double Warranty?
Don't buy a double
warranty, which is coverage for items already covered by the
vehicle manufacturer's warranty. More...
15) How do Extended Warranties help resale?
If the car won't be in
the driveway for longer than the manufacturer's warranty, typically
three years or 36,000 miles, why bother? Beware of the sales pitch that
the service contract will help the resale value of the car. A buyer has
just paid three years for a service that might never be used. More...
16) What if I did get an extended warranty from the vehicle dealer?
If buying the warranty
from the dealer, make sure it's the car manufacturer's warranty, which
is to say a vehicle warranty for a car.
17) When should I buy an extended warranty for my vehicle?
The warranty begins the
day it is purchased, not on the date the car is purchased. So those who
buy it 11-and-a-half months after purchasing have a car covered for
seven years instead of six. More...
18) Extended warranties on a used vehicle?
A used car's price
sticker should clearly state whether there is any initial dealer
warranty. As for an extended warranty, many companies won't sell one
unless the used car was bought from a dealer. More...
19) Extended warranties on a leased vehicle?
Never buy an extended
warranty when leasing a car. More...
