Reasons You Need an Extended Vehicle Warranty
Your car or truck will experience a mechanical problem sooner or later. A dashboard light will blink out, an engine part component will wear down, or a door latch will fail to open. Something will go wrong in your vehicle that will result in a trip to a repair shop and a sizable repair bill.
Today’s cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles are more mechanically and technologically complex than their predecessors. Many late-model vehicles are equipped with push-button ignition, navigation systems, and smart technology that tells you if there is someone in your blind spot or slows your vehicle automatically if you get too close to the one ahead of you. No one who buys a vehicle today thinks ahead about the expense involved if one of these high-tech systems fail.
One option for car buyers is to purchase an extended protection plan that covers the cost of unexpected repairs to your pre-owned vehicle. Here are three reasons why an extended vehicle protection provider is essential for your investment.
Extended Warranty Benefits
Most pre-owned cars, trucks or sport utility vehicles are sold “as is”, meaning as the buyer, you're responsible for any repairs. The older the vehicle, the more likely you will have repairs after the original warranty has expired. Extended vehicle protection programs offer owners the peacefulness that repairs to their vehicle are covered beyond the original warranty period.
Return on Investment
You're likely to finance a late model pre-owned car, which means committing to four or five years of payments. An extended vehicle protection plan covers most mechanical problems for an additional number or months and miles. Your vehicle will operate longer and provide a greater return on your investment.
We mentioned earlier the high-tech systems now standard in many late-model cars and trucks. Keyless entry, remote starting, and other systems can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars to fix once the warranty expires. This is where extended vehicle protection plans are the most useful, as a money-saving repair option.
Next to your home, the choice of a car or truck is the most important financial investment you could make. A coverage plan from a reputable extended vehicle protection provider ensures that when things in your vehicle stop working, you can get the repairs done and get back on the road.
