Buy Vehicle Extended Warranty ((FREE))

Car warranties operate for a set period of time or a set distance in miles. The typical auto warranty coverage is 3 years/36,000 miles. That means the warranty would cover needed repairs in the first 3 years you own your car or for the first 36,000 miles you drive it, whichever comes first.

A comprehensive, or bumper-to-bumper warranty, covers every part your new car had when you bought it. For instance, a brand new 2022 Toyota C-HR comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile comprehensive warranty.

The C-HR from our example comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. So, should the buttons that lower the windows stop working at mile 36,001, the cost of repairing it would fall on you. But should the transmission fail, that repair becomes free.

Many cars also carry a corrosion warranty. It will pay to replace body panels that have rusted through. But crucially, these warranties generally only cover body panels that have completely rusted through, with lesser corrosion not covered. Our Toyota C-HR carries a corrosion warranty for 5 years or unlimited miles.

California, in particular, has more stringent requirements. Manufacturers often issue separate emissions warranties that give California residents longer protections. Our hypothetical C-HR ships with a warranty guaranteeing the emissions system will meet certain performance standards for 2 years or 24,000 miles in most states, and 3 years or 50,000 miles in California. It guarantees against defects in the system for 3 years or 36,000 miles (3 years or 50,000 miles in California). It protects some critical components like the catalytic converter for 8 years or 80,000 miles in every state.

Our hypothetical C-HR has no components specific to a hybrid or electric car. But, for comparison, a 2022 Toyota Prius Prime plug-in hybrid vehicle on the same lot carries an 8-year/100,000-mile warranty on its hybrid components and a separate 10-year/150,000-mile warranty on its battery.

Should your air conditioning stop working while your bumper-to-bumper coverage is active, that warranty will cover the full cost of replacement. If your powertrain warranty is active, it will cover the cost of replacing a transmission that failed during everyday driving.

Since wear and tear are not covered by your warranty, the cost will be completely on you to pay. Try our auto repair estimate tool to help you determine the price range for your repairs to avoid paying more than necessary.

If, however, your car was to need brake pads after just 10,000 miles, the warranty would likely cover the cost of the new pads and the cost of figuring out what part of the brake system is malfunctioning to wear them out so fast and fixing that as well.

Even with some trucks and SUVs marketed for their off-road prowess, driving them off-road can void the warranty. If you buy a Jeep Wrangler, Ford Bronco, or another off-road-oriented vehicle that you plan to take to the trail, we recommend that you discuss the warranty terms with the dealer.

Some manufacturers now include a maintenance plan in the purchase price of a car. Many 2023 Hyundai vehicles, for instance, come with 3 years or 36,000 miles of complimentary maintenance. Other automakers offer optional maintenance packages with the purchase of a new car.

Extended car warranties are a much more complex subject. There are reputable companies that offer reliable warranties that can protect you from the cost of unexpected repairs. But there are at least as many, if not more, scammers looking to sell you a virtually useless extended warranty.

Simply put, never respond to a phone call about a car warranty unless you placed the call. Scammers may even know what type of vehicle you drive. In some states, that information is public and easy to obtain. But no reputable car warranty company will ever call you to offer you a plan.

Many car dealerships offer extended warranties. The dealership where you initially bought your vehicle has every reason to treat you fairly to keep your business. Many banks and financial service companies have relationships with warranty providers. Again, your bank benefits less from selling you a sketchy warranty and losing your trust than from selling you a solid one.

Whether you choose a warranty from a bank, dealership, or reputable company, we recommend selecting from a business you know and trust. A company with a reputation to defend, a Better Business Bureau rating, and perhaps even faces in your local community is far more likely to approve warranty repairs than a company you know only from a website.

But just as you've breathed a sigh of relief, you realize that you are walking into the finance and insurance (F&I) office to sign the contract. Once inside that room, the F&I manager will likely offer you things such as paint protection, prepaid maintenance plans, theft-recovery systems and a road-hazard warranty for your tires. But one of the priciest products offered will likely be the extended car warranty.

Extended car warranties, also known as "vehicle service contracts," can provide peace of mind to people purchasing a new car. Auto dealerships like them because they are an additional profit center for the business. As with any decision in a vehicle purchase, you must research and weigh the benefits of the product.

It is important to note that you have the option to purchase this auto warranty any time before the manufacturer warranty expires. You can even purchase an extended warranty after the manufacturer warranty expires, although the price will go up considerably.

You might already have asked the five questions that should precede the conclusion of a new car deal. But now it is time to ask yourself five extended car warranty questions. They'll help you decide whether this vehicle service contract is worth it, and they'll help you get the best price.

Before we get to the questions you should answer for yourself, here's one you'll hear from the finance manager: "Do you plan on keeping this car for a long time?" It's a common question, and it's worth your consideration. Do you get tired of a car by its third year? If so, paying for an extended car warranty doesn't make much sense since the manufacturer's warranty will still likely be in effect. But if you are someone who drives a vehicle until the wheels fall off, the extended car warranty might be worth considering. But how long you'll keep the vehicle isn't the only consideration. Here are five questions to think through before you decide.

Many dealerships offer third-party warranties from companies with varying track records. If you are going to purchase an extended car warranty, make sure it is backed by the automaker, not just the dealership or some other company. You can use a manufacturer-backed extended warranty at any dealership across the country. A third-party vehicle service contract might be good only at the dealership that sold it to you.

It's unlikely that an F&I manager will be willing to let you shop around on your phone while you're sitting at his or her desk with a pile of purchase paperwork between the two of you. This research is best done before you go to the dealer to finalize your auto purchase. If buying the vehicle is already a financial handful, you can shop for a better price on the extended auto warranty after the sale. Here's how to do that.

Get a price quote from the F&I manager for the warranty that's offered. Then shop it around by phone with F&I managers at other dealerships, simply to compare prices on the car you're getting ready to buy.

The F&I manager at the dealership at which you're buying the vehicle might say that the price of the extended car warranty is not negotiable. That might not actually be the case. If you check with other dealers, you'll find that some of them do have a lower asking price for the same product. Or they might be more willing to negotiate.

The only benefit to getting an extended auto warranty as you purchase a vehicle is the ability to wrap the warranty's cost into your financing. But unless you've shopped in advance and can negotiate a lower price for the extended warranty on the spot, this route could cost you more in the long run.

Have other cars you've owned had the kinds of problems that would have been covered by a warranty? If you are considering a road-hazard tire warranty, for example, think about how many times you've had a flat tire. If there is a lot of debris on the roads in your area or if you've had several flat tires in a short span of time, a road-hazard warranty may be worth looking into. But if you can't remember the last time you had a flat, you might not need the coverage.

You also can add up how much you have spent on out-of-warranty repairs in the past and compare the total to the warranty's price. For example, if you've paid $500 for repairs that occurred out of warranty, weigh that against the cost of the extended warranty.

Some F&I managers can make you feel that saying no to the extended warranty is like playing Russian roulette with your vehicle. You never know when that costly repair bullet might strike. But new cars are more reliable than ever. And the data seems to indicate that most people might not need an extended warranty.

If you still want an extra measure of security, you can self-insure. Financial guru Dave Ramsey suggests setting aside half of what you would pay for a warranty and using that money to handle any car repairs that might come up.

No matter what advice comes their way, some people simply aren't willing to take chances or prefer the convenience of an extended warranty. They're more comfortable knowing that any major repairs will be taken care of. There's nothing wrong with that. If you're a belt-and-suspenders person, just make sure you ask the right questions before you buy an extended warranty.

Some warranty plans include extras, such as towing, roadside assistance or trip interruption protection. Many extended warranty plans require you to pay a deductible toward repairs, while some will pay every dollar of the repair bill. 041b061a72
