Have you recently bought a used car? Or are you looking to buy one? Then you may have heard of a used car warranty. Maybe it’s time you consider a warranty to go along with your new (used) car.

Let’s start by clearing the air about the name “extended vehicle warranty.”  A true extended vehicle warranty is a warranty backed by the vehicle manufacturer and sold by an authorized dealer. It is sort of like an extension of the original manufacturer’s warranty. Any other so-called used car warranty is technically a vehicle protection plan or extended service contract. Both contract types have similarities, mainly the fact that they cover the cost of specific repairs and problems once the original manufacturer’s warranty has expired.

The Benefits of an Extended Vehicle Warranty for a Used Car

Why you should consider buying an extended warranty for a used car? Consider the following facts, features, and benefits of getting extended protection..

Repair Coverage

Buying a used car is usually a great value, but you are also likely to face repairs sooner than you would with a new car. Do you have an extra $500 or $1,000 readily available to pay for a large repair bill? The average person does not! An extended warranty for a used car will usually cover at least part of the cost for repairs to your vehicle, saving you stress and money.

24-hour Roadside Assistance

Having your car break down is bad enough. Paying a ton of money to tow that broken-down car to a repair shop makes it even worse. Many extended warranty plans include 24-hour roadside assistance, as well as towing, lost key/lock-out services, emergency fuel service, and more.

Rental Car Assistance

Some vehicle repairs take more than a day, up to a week, or more. Could you use help paying for a rental car so you can get to work or school? The best plans offer up to 5 days of vehicle rental reimbursement!

Peace of Mind

Having a good extended warranty for a used car can provide you with peace of mind. The peace of mind that you won’t be stuck with a surprise repair bill and can afford to fix your vehicle when it breaks down. The peace of mind that you can afford to have your car towed to the repair shop. The peace of mind that you can even rent a car if the repairs will take a while.

If this sounds good to you, then it’s time to start researching and shopping around!  Make sure to look for a plan that offers great coverage for repairs plus extra features and benefits. An extended vehicle warranty can pay for itself with only one expensive repair bill.
