There are many circumstances that can help you make up your mind. If you are leasing the vehicle the extended warranty is useless if the lease term is the same as the manufacturer’s warranty.
If you are purchasing the vehicle the new car extended warranty may be feasible. If you are purchasing an aftermarket warranty, read the document over very closely. These warranties usually are difficult to file a claim. They often have limited coverage and only cover items that fail completely. Some aftermarket warranties are good but it is up to you to research the warranty company BEFORE purchasing it.
The single most important thing to remember is to have your vehicle serviced regularly according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and have these services well documented and saved to verify your obligations. Our maintenance services are approved by all warranty companies and manufacturers.
