3 Reasons Why Car Warranties Are Worth It

Trying to decide if extended car warranties are really worth it? An extended car warranty can protect you from unexpected repair costs and give you coverage that your original factory warranty may not offer.

Keep reading to learn about the industry-leading protection plans at CARCHEX and what factors you should consider before getting an extended car warranty.

Three Reasons Extended Car Warranties Are Worth It

car warranties are worth it

You may not think that purchasing an extended warranty for your vehicle is necessary. However, when your original factory warranty expires, you will be left having to pay for any expensive repair costs.

Here are three reasons why buying an extended warranty is worth it:

1. Peace of Mind

Regardless if you have a used or new car, extended warranties are perfect for people who need extra coverage or who cannot afford the expense of unexpected repairs. Once a factory warranty expires, it might be difficult to afford expensive vehicle parts.

Purchasing an extended auto warranty, such as an industry-leading plan from CARCHEX, eliminates this source of anxiety and protects against costly repairs.

2. Flexibility 

Unlike manufacturer warranties, extended car warranties provide unmatched flexibility. For instance, CARCHEX allows customers to take their cars to any authorized repair shop while a warranty from the manufacturer usually requires the car be taken to a specific dealership.

Purchasing a third-party warranty also allows vehicle owners the ability to shop around for the best deal and find affordable coverage. CARCHEX proves its worth by finding the highest-rated warranties and giving you a variety of options to choose from.

3. Additional Benefits

There are other ways car warranties prove their worth and help customers out of stressful situations. Roadside assistance, rental cars, towing, trip protection, and affordable payment plans are just a few of the benefits you receive when you buy a car warranty with CARCHEX.
