Choosing the Best Extended Warranty | Your Options

Everyone wants the best extended warranty available. Before buying though, it is important to consider a range of coverage choices and prices. Read on to see top options for you and the 6 key factors to consider when looking for the best extended warranty for your vehicle.

What is the Best Extended Warranty?

In general, the best extended warranty for your car will tell you exactly what you get with the warranty, without hiding fees or exclusions. It should be written in a straight-forward manner. In other words:

  • It clearly states which repairs are covered and which are not.
  • The price and additional recurring charges, like deductibles, if any, are clearly stated.
  • The beginning and end of the policy is indicated.
  • It clearly states which repair shops are approved.
  • It allows the policy to begin the day on which you pay for it.
  • It states a clear process for addressing any service mishaps.

The best warranty will be serious about covering your needs — presenting all terms up front, in language everyone can understand.

Who Sells the Best Extended Warranty?

Organizations that review such things laud the companies with great customer service. The companies that empower customers with honest and accurate information are the best options. Also, you can always check online reviews and rankings to find the best warranty.

Here are some rules of thumb to keep in mind when shopping for an extended warranty:

  • The company will offer a wide range of plans to fit a wide range of customers.
  • Be sure the extended warranty policy is transferable when you sell the car.
  • The company partners with the customer, by requiring them to comply with scheduled maintenance recommendations as a condition of the warranty.
  • The best extended warranty companies offer a 30-day money back guarantee to new customers.

The 6 most important things to consider before you purchase a plan are:

  1. Company Experience
  2. Better Business Bureau Accreditation
  3. Better Business Bureau Rating
