There’s a lot to consider when shopping for extended vehicle protection. Does the cost match the benefits? Many auto owners don’t always know what they’re getting in their protection plans. The CARCHEX protection specialists are here to help find the best extended protection plan for you.
Extended vehicle protection is another name for auto extended warranty. These protection plans can be purchased for used, new, and pre-owned cars. The idea is that you save money by paying for your protection plan instead of costly repairs at the auto shop. Powertrain and bumper-to-bumper warranties are two of the most common types of extended vehicle protection plans.
If your factory warranty has expired and you are thinking about purchasing extended auto protection, ask yourself these questions:
What’s the cost of an extended warranty and is it worth it? There are several factors that determine what you’ll be paying. Warranties for older vehicles with higher mileages are more expensive. The same goes for luxury brands and models. Also, the level of coverage you select plays a big part in the cost. However, if your plan includes a deductible, your premium cost is lower.
Before you sign on the dotted line, do your research and compare prices between the manufacturer and auto warranty companies. CARCHEX does the same when setting our prices to guarantee our customers a fair, affordable price.
Suppose your car breaks down and the estimate to get it fixed is several thousand dollars. Unless you have that money sitting around, you probably want to be protected in case something unexpected happens on the road. Saving money is just the start of why buying extended coverage is worth it. Here are a few more reasons to think about extending past the original warranty:
1. Longer Protection Means You Can Drive Longer
After a factory warranty expires, you’re no longer protected against high repair costs. As cars get older, they become more vulnerable. That’s why buying extended protection can keep you on the road longer.
2. You Fit The Protection Plan To Your Needs
A vehicle protection plan isn’t one-size-fits-all. There’s room to negotiate and opportunity to make the plan fit your driving habits.
3. Extended Protection Covers Your Car’s Technology
Extending your vehicle’s protection will cover many of the car’s technologies such as HVAC systems, audio, and other electrical systems.
Before you leave the dealership, you can bet that you’ll be offered an extended warranty. It’s important to know that you have options. Third party auto warranty companies like CARCHEX provide a wide range of affordable options. Plus, a buying a manufacturer extended warranty more than often means that you are required to use their facilities, technicians, and parts for your repair to be covered. These factors are known to boost the costs.
