An extended warranty is an agreement between the truck owner and Warranty Company, obligating the warranty company to pay for repairs covered by the contract for a specific period of time.
With an extended auto warranty you are protecting yourself from the unexpected expense of mechanical failure, in the event something goes wrong with your truck. More...
Know what's covered -- and what's not covered -- by the extended auto warranty you're considering. Does the contract cover breakdown as well as wear and tear? Under a "breakdown" warranty, coverage is extended only to parts that break. You can obtain extended warranties for the car: More...
Since even simple mechanical repairs of your truck can cost into the thousands and these costs are rising rapidly; protecting your investment in your truck should not be taken lightly. More...
Whether you own a new or older truck, an extended auto warranty will provide you with peace-of-mind protection regarding costly mechanical repairs that can happen at any time during the life of your vehicle. More...
Fully investigate a policy's deductible before signing on the dotted line. Consider not only its amount, but also whether it's per visit or per repair. With a per-visit deductible, each visit to the shop will run you a fixed amount, regardless of how many parts are repaired; a per-repair deductible applies to each serviced part. What sounds like a minor difference may, under certain circumstances, have a major impact on your wallet. More...
Power train Warranty: Covers the engine, transmission, and other parts of the Drive train only, which is defined as the 29 parts of the vehicle through which oil flows. These are the parts least likely to fail.
The average truck contains thousands of parts. As it does not cover the majority of the components of a vehicle, the Power train Warranty is truly not an extended warranty. More...
Many consumers do not realize that even after the manufacturer's warranty has expired, their truck is still eligible for extended coverage. You can generally receive coverage on vehicles that have less than 100,000 miles on the odometer. A truck out of its original warranty is more apt to have mechanical failure compared to a newer truck. More...
The top warranty companies work like this: If your truck breaks down or is in need of a repair, take it or have it towed to any licensed repair facility and present your service agreement to the Service Department. After they diagnose the problem, they will call the claims administrator toll-free and receive repair authorization for all your covered repairs less a deductible where applicable. More...
truck dealers make a profit on the extended warranty, sometimes as much as they make on the car! Buyers can negotiate the price of the warranty just as they did the price of the truck. The working assumption is that dealers pay about 50 percent less than the asking price for the warranty. A buyer should not pay more than two-thirds of the asking price. More...
It is not necessary to buy the extended warranty right away. Buyers usually have 12 months after a new truck purchase to buy a warranty. Get the time limit from the company selling it. More...
The warranty need not be purchased from the dealer. Check a credit union or auto insurance dealer for a warranty program, sometimes known as mechanical breakdown insurance. Check out the service contract or truck warranty companies. More...
Shop around for the best price and the best coverage. If the warranty has a $100 deductible for each service or repair, why bother? More...
Buyers can even shop different dealerships by calling the finance managers at the other stores. A buyer can tell the dealer who sold the truck that he's going to check with the competition to find the best price. More...
Don't buy a double warranty, which is coverage for items already covered by the truck manufacturer's warranty. More...
If the car won't be in the driveway for longer than the manufacturer's warranty, typically three years or 36,000 miles, why bother? Beware of the sales pitch that the service contract will help the resale value of the car. A buyer has just paid three years for a service that might never be used. More...
If buying the warranty from the dealer, make sure it's the car manufacturer's warranty, which is to say a truck warranty for a car. More...
The warranty begins the day it is purchased, not on the date the car is purchased. So those who buy it 11-and-a-half months after purchasing have a car covered for seven years instead of six. More...
A used car's price sticker should clearly state whether there is any initial dealer warranty. As for an extended warranty, many companies won't sell one unless the used car was bought from a dealer. More...
Never buy an extended warranty when leasing a car. More...
