Get An Aftermarket Auto Warranty The Covers Wear And Tear

 

People usually purchase an aftermarket auto warranty or an extended auto warranty for their cars when their factory warranty is up. When you purchase an aftermarket auto warranty, you warranty provider will cover the costs of bills for replacement and repair of certain parts of your car. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning on buying an aftermarket auto warranty:

An aftermarket auto warranty generally does not cover the costs of repairs that are in relation to wear and tear. An aftermarket bumper-to-bumper warranty will cover expenses for repair and replacement of most parts of your car, but usually, this warranty will not cover your brakes, tires, etc. However, there are companies out there that will provide you with a warranty that covers wear and tear parts in addition to the other parts. It is smart to purchase a warranty that covers wear and tear parts even if it is more expensive than a regular mechanical warranty. This is because approximately 80% of your car repair expenses are due to wear and tear issues. You can save a good amount of money with an auto warranty that provides coverage for wear and tear problems, especially if you have an older car.

 

Used Car Warranties & Pre-Existing Conditions

When purchasing a used vehicle is important to be sure that the vehicle is in excellent working order before finalizing a deal or taking delivery. It is obvious that purchasing an auto warranty when you have a vehicle it is no longer covered by the manufacturer is an excellent idea to protect you against any unforeseen repair expenses that might arise. It is not uncommon to have repairs pop up you were not expecting that can cost $500, $1,500, or even $3,000 or more.

However, many consumers are not aware that unlike medical insurance, automobile warranty companies are not obligated to cover a vehicle’s pre-existing conditions. To prevent getting caught off guard with a pre-existing issue with a vehicle is strongly recommended that you have the vehicle inspected by a qualified used vehicle inspection service or dealership prior to finalizing a purchase. If you are purchasing the vehicle from a dealership do not automatically assume that they have fully inspected it themselves even though they might have. It is worthwhile to have a second opinion by hiring an independent inspector to check the vehicle out. If you are purchasing a vehicle privately it is even more important to have the vehicle checked out by a qualified mechanic or inspection service. This will help you avoid getting caught off guard with a repair that may not be covered by your auto warranty.
