Buy a Warranty for a Used Car

When buying a warranty for a used car, you want to make sure to pick a reputable company that offers quality coverage, good customer service, and fair prices. Read on to learn how to pick the best company to work with and what you should be thinking about as you evaluate your options.

What To Look For When Buying Warranty Coverage

Here are some things to look for when you’re choosing between the top-rated used car warranty companies:

Business Track Record
How long has the company been in business? How many people have reviewed them online? If you’re not careful, you’ll run into some “fly by night” outfits. Look for a long track record of business success, and you’ll see that you’re working with a reputable provider.

Better Business Bureau
Checking out each company’s Better Business Bureau profile is a must. Be sure to check out their customer service rating, complaints, and accreditation.

Are The Plans They Offer Insured?
Make sure the company on the phone offers insured warranty plans. That way you’ll know that you’re getting a legitimate plan and that the provider will stand by it.

Here’s a look at how the most well-known auto warranty providers stack up:

You’ll notice CARCHEX will get you to the finish line from quote to coverage. But before you buy, here are some questions to ask:

  • What exactly is included in each plan? What’s not covered?
  • How long are the terms (in mileage or years) and are there any restrictions?
  • What is my monthly cost? What’s my deductible?
  • Where can I take my car to be repaired? Am I restricted to using only dealerships?
  • If I need time or change my mind, what’s the cancellation policy?

Buying a used car warranty isn’t a minor purchase. Make sure to take your time, and don’t forget to check out each company’s online reviews. Knowing what other people had to say — both positive and negative — is extremely valuable.
