Extended Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties: Top Three Benefits

what is an extended warranty for a vehicle

What is an Extended Vehicle Warranty?

An Extended Warranty is an available service contract that delivers long-term vehicle stability that exceeds the original manufacturer warranty. Extended Vehicle Warranties are routinely offered in two forms, Powertrain and Bumper-to-Bumper. A Powertrain Warranty typically only protects the engine and transmission from failure. Virtually every piece on your car can be covered on a Bumper-to-Bumper Vehicle Warranty (some exclusions apply). Auto Warranties do not cover repair service because of negligent decisions and normally don’t cover wear items like engine oil, tires, brake pads, or air filters. Depending on the contract you purchase, the Auto Warranty might also come with perks like Travel Interruption Reimbursement, free satellite radio trial period, Rental Car Reimbursement, and even Roadside Assistance.

Pros & Cons of Extended Auto Warranties

The normal reason to request an Extended Warranty is to save money. If your vehicle’s engine fails you could be on-the-hook for a pricey bill, without an Auto Warranty. With a Powertrain Extended Warranty, the exact same bill may just require a modest payment to be made. The Extended Warranty would handle the rest of the repair bill as long as the issue and components are part of the contract. Someone that keeps a vehicle for many years will see the largest reward, but even if you trade-in your vehicles a lot an Extended Vehicle Warranty will still be valuable. The miles and years can cause components to deteriorate, even on dependable cars. An Extended Warranty can diminish the worry of long-term vehicle ownership.

Personalized Vehicle Warranties

An Extended Warranty allows you to decide the length of your auto warranty. Normal manufacturer warranties often have a longer powertrain extended warranty and a shorter bumper-to-bumper warranty. By selecting an extended warranty you could extend the bumper-to-bumper warranty to match the powertrain warranty and have the best coverage for your vehicle. Our technicians can help sort through the options and choose the one that’s best for you.
