Which Car Models You Should Have an Auto Warranty For?
By Dale Roberts
When deciding whether an auto warranty is the best choice for your car, the biggest and most important question is whether or not the cost of the warranty itself will either be smaller or larger than the repairs it pays for.
For car brands who are known to be reliable day in and day out, an auto warranty is not a good choice since you will more likely than not save money by just paying for repairs out of pocket instead of paying an auto warranty fee.
However an auto warranty can be useful when you already have a car from a brand that has proven its unreliability.
Some brands where an auto warranty may be worth it are…
Despite being an American classic, Ford has proven within a variety of its car models that on being reliable and or high-quality it fails.
With some of its models having “much worse than average” reliability, buying an auto warranty to offset the future repairs you may have is a wise investment.
Ford’s basic warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles, powertrain is five years or 60,000 miles, corrosion warranty gives five years and unlimited miles and roadside assistance is five years or 60,000 miles.
Receiving a lower than average score in reliability, Dodge has shown that making cars that do not stop running is not one of its top priorities.
Since the takeover by Fiat, Dodge has continued to focus more on styling than on cold, hard automobile strength and for this it continues to lag behind the competition in reliability.
Dodge offers a basic warranty with three years or 36,000 miles, powertrain warranty with five years or 100,000 miles, corrosion warranty with five years or 100,000 miles and roadside assistance for three years or 36,000 miles.
Jeep was rated as having the lowest possible reliability rating by a consumer index. Despite its brand advertising that describe it as a “rugged, go-anywhere” kind of car, it tends to break down more than it should.
Especially since the price tag on Jeeps tend to be steeper and so the parts are more expensive, an auto warranty may offset possible repairs in the future.
Jeep offers a basic warranty with three years or 36,000 miles, powertrain warranty with five years or 100,000 miles, corrosion warranty with five years or 100,000 miles and roadside assistance for three years or 36,000 miles.
If you own any of these brands or have a vehicle that has time and time again broken down on you, an auto warranty may be a good financial investment for you.
What’s important is to take a good look at what it costs to repair your car and if the parts do cost a pretty-penny, than paying for an auto warranty will save you money in the long run.
