Any vehicle owner can feel at ease when bringing their car to the shop if they are covered by an auto warranty. Auto warranties cover repair and maintenance costs for your vehicles. Here are three things to be sure you know about an auto warranty:
1. Know where the auto warranty is coming from. Is it coming from a manufacturer or an aftermarket company? It is important to be aware of who is handling your policy.
2. Thoroughly read through the warranty so that you are aware of how long it will last and what coverage you are getting from it.
3. Be aware of and be sure to perform any and all required maintenance on your vehicle because warranties only remain valid if you get specific work done to your vehicle. Also, keep a record of all maintenance and repairs performed on your vehicle in the event that you ever need to handle a claim.
Auto warranties provide peace of mind when bringing your vehicle to your mechanic for repairs and maintenance. If you want to get the most out of your auto warranty, it is important to know all of its details.

Generally, people purchase an aftermarket auto warranty or an extended auto warranty for their vehicles when their factory warranty comes to an end. When you purchase an aftermarket auto warranty, your warranty provider covers the costs of repair and replacement of specific car parts. Here are some things you should remember when thinking about purchasing an aftermarket auto warranty:
An aftermarket auto warranty usually doesn’t cover the costs of repair and replacement of parts that break down due to wear and tear. An aftermarket bumper to bumper warranty will cover costs for repair and replacement of most parts in your vehicle, but usually this does not include tires, brakes, etc. that break down to wear and tear. However, there are companies that offer warranties that cover wear and tear parts as well. It is wise to buy a warranty that covers wear and tear parts even if this means that is more costly to purchase than a regular mechanical warranty. This is because almost 80% of your car’s repair costs are a result of wear and tear problems that arise. An auto warranty that covers wear and tear issues will help you save a lot of money, especially if your vehicle is older.

The trade-in value of a vehicle is determined by how desirable it will be in the used car market. A vehicle that is in good shape, has an accident-free history, and hasn’t had multiple owners will have a higher trade-in value. One of the most important factors in the vehicle’s value whether or not it was properly maintained and serviced. If the owner of the vehicle had an extended auto warranty, it was likely serviced and maintained properly and regularly because the owner did not need to fret about the cost of maintenance and repairs.
When appraisers determine a vehicle’s value when it gets traded-in, they take many factors into consideration. They will look at whether or not maintenance was performed on a routine basis and also if and what major repairs were done on the vehicle. Vehicles under warranty generally have less mechanical issues since the owner did not worry about repair costs and got repairs and done right away. This is because the costs were covered by the auto warranty. Dealers want these vehicles to be sold on their lots since they are more reliable and reliability is important to consumers who want to buy a used vehicle.
If you want to ensure that your vehicle maintains a higher trade-in value, maintain it properly and regularly, as well as have necessary repairs performed right away. If you want to avoid any excessive service and repair costs, it is wise to purchase an extended auto warranty for your vehicle.

Motorists can feel at ease when they buy an extended auto warranty. However, peace of mind comes when motorists are getting the most out of their auto warranty. In order to do so, it is important for them to organize their documents and ask all of the necessary questions. The following tips can help motorists get the most out of their auto warranty:
Often times, service records are necessary for an extended warranty. This makes it very important to keep all records organized. Keeping the documents in an accessible location at all times will help relieve a lot of stress and frustrations down the road.
It is always good to keep records on your computer, however it is important that you do not solely rely on this method of keeping records. Make sure that when you purchase an auto warranty online that you print hard copies as well. You cannot always predict when your computer will crash, and it would be very inconvenient if it were at a time when you needed to view your auto warranty.
Also, be sure that you read through your auto warranty in its entirety. If you do not see something that is written in the contract, then it will not be covered by the warranty. Do not make any assumptions about what your warranty covers.
Finally, make sure that you can easily access contact information at any time. This can really help relieve stress in the event that you file a claim.

There are two main kinds of extended auto warranties. There are auto warranties that are bought through aftermarket auto warranty companies and there are auto warranties that are backed by a manufacturer.
An extended auto warranty that is bought through an aftermarket auto warranty company tends to be less expensive. Also, this kind of auto warranty tends to vary in both price and quality depending upon which company you buy from. This is why it is always important to do your research before making a purchase.
An extended auto warranty that is backed by the manufacturer generally includes a wide variety of repairs and services. Repairs performed on your vehicle are usually done in a dealership that is approved by the manufacturer. This means that you will not usually experience any issues when going to get them done.
No matter where you get your extended auto warranty company from, it is essential that you do research. Compare a variety of warranties for price and quality.

We are often questioned on why we don’t post any testimonials of our happy customers on our website. It is unfortunate, but it is become the practice of many companies, both reputable and not reputable, to either create their own testimonials or higher a public relations firm to do it for them. This is obviously a dishonest and poor way to run a business. We choose not to post testimonials, though we have many, as we simply will not fall into this group.
So how is a consumer supposed to know what companies are reputable and what companies are not? The last thing a customer wants to do is invest their hard-earned money in a warranty program that will simply not pay claims as they promise. The best way to protect yourself as a consumer is to make sure you follow the following guides…
• First, make sure the company you choose for your warranty coverage has been in business 10 years or more so they have shown experience successfully paying claims, not simply selling plans and collecting premiums.
• Second, make sure the plan you choose is directly underwritten by a US-based, A rated insurance carrier. Many “so-called” auto warranty companies are simply corporations or risk retention groups and have no financial or insurance backing. Having a directly underwritten plan means that if the warranty administrator ever fails to exist, your claims will automatically be paid by the insurance carrier and your coverage will be valid regardless.
• Third, you want to choose a company that has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, and perhaps more importantly has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
The bottom line is that as you research the different coverage available to you, do not only look at the items covered and the price of coverage, look at the tenure and reliability of the company you are purchasing from. Though we are not the only company in the auto warranty industry, we are one of the best. To obtain a quote visit our webpage.

An auto warranty is a wise investment to make when buying a new car. New car warranties provide four kinds of coverage:
1. One kind of coverage that you can receive is basic, bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. This kind of warranty provides coverage for all of the parts of the car from the front bumper to the back bumper.
2. Another kind of coverage that you can receive is a powertrain warranty. This covers the parts of the car that make it run. This includes parts like the drive axels, the engine, the driveshaft, and the transmission.
3. In addition, your auto warranty can cover corrosion and rust. This handles rust-through problems.
4. Lastly, you can get roadside assistance with your warranty. You may receive this service if you have a basic warranty that is active. It provides professional help when you are stranded on the side of the road due to a vehicular breakdown. It offers services such as flat tire assistance, lockout assistance, refueling assistance and towing.
To further familiarize yourself with the exact coverage provided for you by your auto warranty, read through the warranty booklet and owner’s manual. If you still don’t believe that you have all of the coverage that you need it is good to purchase an extended auto warranty for your car as well.

Today, people rely heavily upon their cars to get through each day. If the car is not running smoothly, they are very susceptible to break downs. This makes getting through the day a more stressful task. In addition, the repairs to get the car running and back on the road again can be costly.
When a motorist’s old car breaks down completely, they will generally just think that they should buy another used car. If they do not have the proper funds for a new car or if they simply have poor credit, a used car loan may be a good option to help buy the car. There are places that will give car loans to motorists who have a need to purchase a used car.
After buying a car, it is a good idea to buy used car warranties that will cover the costs of maintenance and repairs to keep the car running smoothly and properly. If money is a struggle for you, an auto warranty will help to save your wallet each time the car goes to the mechanic.

The transmission is an essential part in your car. It is also one of the most costly parts to replace or repair. If you have owned your car for a long period of time, it is a possibility that you will eventually need to replace or repair the transmission. Here are some telltale signs that your transmission needs replacement:
The first sign is that your car is leaking transmission fluid. Check under your car while it is parked. Look for fluid pools that have a reddish color. After, check to see if there is any metal in the fluid. If there is, it is important to replace the transmission since broken metal is a sign that the transmission is worn down.
In addition, inspect the fluid levels in your car’s transmission. If you have low levels, this may be an indication that your transmission is burning too much fluid or that it is overheating.
Also, if there is a rough transition between gears when driving, this is an indication that your transmission needs replacement. It may take longer to switch between gears or the gears may slip. This will reduce the acceleration in your car.
Transmission replacements can be costly. Therefore, it is smart to look into an aftermarket auto warranty company that you can buy an extended auto warranty from. The auto warranty will help reduce the costs of your repair bills. Lastly, be sure that you purchase an auto warranty that provides the proper amount of coverage for your car.
