Buying an Extended Auto Warranty: What You Should Know.

Just because a company claims to offer extended auto warranty coverage doesn't mean that you can expect
complete bumper-to-bumper coverage. Some plans available in the market cover only catastrophic failures,
or only certain systems.

Those companies that sell and administer their own plans are better equipped to provide reliable service
and support.


Manufacturer warranties are called exclusionary plans because it takes less time to mention what's not
covered than it does to go through all the thousands of things that are. This is a sign that you're receiving
the maximum amount of coverage available. Plans that list only those items which are covered may not be full
warranty plans; they may be partial plans only. Also make sure car rentals are covered while auto repairs
are being made.


Never assume that an extended auto warranty plan includes parts and labor costs. You could end up paying for
the time the mechanics spent repairing your vehicle. Considering that hourly rates can be between $70 and $100
or more per hour, these costs can quickly add up.


When you purchase an extended vehicle warranty plan, you're making a contract between you and an administrator.
Just like any contract, you need to feel certain that the administrator is going to remain in business and honor
their contractual agreements. Look at the financial strength of the company. Will they be able to pay your claim
when you make it? What's their track record when it comes to customer service? Are they properly licensed and
registered to do business in your state? A variety of resources can be helpful in this respect, including the
Better Business Bureau and Dun & Bradstreet.


Make sure you know what you'll need to do in order to reap the benefits of your extended auto warranty plan.
Nationwide coverage, the ability to choose the repair facility of your choice, and direct payment to repair
facilities are all options that determine the best auto warranty plans.
