There isn’t one set price for an extended auto warranty, which is a type of vehicle service contract. Some factors that often affect how much an extended warranty on a car is include:
An extended warranty plan from the dealership will usually cost between $1,000 and $1,500. Normally, the cost of an extended warranty is tacked on to your monthly car payment. However, one drawback to is you may end up paying interest on the warranty, and it becomes more expensive in the long run.
The cost of a plan through CARCHEX is cheaper and comes in the form of monthly payments. To get an idea of what a plan for a luxury car would cost, consider the estimates for our Acura and Infiniti owners.

Yes, especially if you want your coverage to continue after your factory warranty has expired. Without a warranty, you are left to cover the cost of repairs on your own.
For example, Infiniti vehicles with all-wheel drive, such as the M35 and EX35 models, develop a groaning noise in the steering rack over time. A replacement part to fix the noise costs between $1,124 and $2,047, according to RepairPal. The repair price for this one issue alone costs more than an extended warranty could for the entire year. You’ll actually save money with an extended warranty, especially if more than one repair arises during the year.
An extended warranty can also be worth it if you value peace of mind when it comes to budgeting for repair costs. You can have a set payment each month.
Yes. Most dealerships require that you buy an extended warranty before your factory warranty runs out, which gives you a few years to decide if an extended warranty through the manufacturer is the right fit for you.
Yes. This is especially true at dealerships, where they mark up the prices.
