Do you have an extended warranty from a car that you purchased from a dealership? If so, you likely aren’t aware of the fact that most extended warranties can be serviced by an independent authorized service center like Clark Automotive. If you’ve been taking your car to the dealer for any type of extended warranty car repairs, why not work with a local, family owned shop that will ensure you’re always treated fairly?
What is an Extended Warranty?
An extended warranty is used to help defray car repair costs after the purchase of a new or used vehicle. It’s important to not confuse an extended warranty with a manufacturer’s warranty. Extended warranties are completely separate from manufacturer’s warranties and kick in after the expiration of a manufacturer’s warranty. In addition, extended warranties are typically not included with the purchase price of a vehicle.
Things to Keep in Mind When Purchasing an Extended Warranty
If you’re in the market for a new or used car, you’ll likely be asked whether you’d like to purchase an extended warranty. It’s important to keep the following things in mind to determine if you can benefit from this type of warranty.
• Is your vehicle still under a manufacturer’s warranty – If you’re purchasing a used vehicle, you should check to see if it’s still covered by any type of manufacturer’s warranty. These warranties typically cover a car for a certain period of time or mileage.
• How long do you plan to own the car – If the car you’re purchasing still has a manufacturer’s warranty, it’s important to think about whether you’ll still be owning the car once that original warranty expires. If you’re quick to trade in vehicles, an extended warranty may not be the best option for you.
• Check on deductibles – Be sure to look into whether a deductible is required for repairs.
• Coverage options – Be sure to check what is covered under the extended warranty. Does the policy offer full bumper-to-bumper coverage or is only the drivetrain covered?
