When you purchase a used car, it may or may not have time left on the original manufacturer warranty. If the vehicle is already passed the terms of its original warranty, an extended auto warranty may be the best way to provide coverage for your vehicle. These warranties may also be called an extended service contract.
Every car that comes off the production line is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. The terms and lengths of these warranties vary based on the manufacturer; but when you are purchasing pre-owned vehicle you will only be eligible for whatever time is left on the manufacturer’s coverage.
To provide an example, Ford’s basic warranty expires at three years or 36-thousand miles, whichever comes first. This means that if you buy a two year old care with 37-thousand miles, it will not have Ford’s warranty coverage.
Extended automotive warranties can be very beneficial for used car buyers because the vehicle’s manufacturer based warranty may be expired, you can still provide coverage for the cars parts if they fail. This can be very useful to anyone who may maintain a budget or funds set aside to cover maintenance for the vehicle because repair bills will be drastically lower.
What Is An Extended Auto Warranty?
While it is called an extended warranty, these are not simply extensions of the automobile’s original warranty. Extended warranties are designed to cover your vehicles parts after a manufacturer’s warranty has ended. Some people use this in conjunction with a manufacturer’s warranty to provide overlap in coverage to be extra safe. These contracts range in price depending on the level of coverage wanted by the customer.
One important bit of advice from our experts here at Delta Auto Protect is to always understand what is covered with your agreement. When purchasing an extended automotive warranty, make sure the essential items that you are most likely to encounter issues are covered. Such as your vehicle’s brake system, electrical system, air conditioning and power steering systems.
Car problems happen with almost every vehicle, even the most reliable. This can be especially true with a used vehicle. If you want to add an extra layer of protection to your investment, an extended auto warranty can provide you with peace of mind knowing that an unexpected trip to the auto shop won’t leave you strapped for cash.
