Service Contracts

Peace of mind during your ownership period.

A new car or truck is a significant investment. It should come as no surprise that many drivers seek peace of mind by covering their four-wheeled friend with an extended service contract. These programs are sold on new and used vehicles, and have the ability to save you thousands of dollars in repair costs.

It’s important to note the difference between a factory warranty and an extended service contract:

  • Factory warranties are offered by the manufacturer at no additional cost to the consumer, and generally have comprehensive coverage for around three years. After this initial period, some manufacturers offer coverage for only the main components of a vehicle (such as a powertrain warranty).
  • An extended service contract offers protection after the initial warranty period expires. And they can have other perks too!

When deciding if you should purchase an extended service contract, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Facts #1

Your factory warranty is very comprehensive. It covers virtually every part in your vehicle and can help prevent you from paying expensive repair bills. One problem, it ends!

Facts #3

Each year more and more sophisticated technology is built into vehicles to improve their safety, performance, comfort and value. These same innovations increase the vehicle’s reliability. However, if something does go wrong, the necessary repairs are often complex and costly.**

I am so glad I decided to get an Extended Service Contract for my new car. I am a student and on a very tight budget. After owning my vehicle for just over 3 years my fuel pump went out. The Extended Service Contract covered my tow to the dealership, the part and labor. If I didn’t have the Service Contract, I would probably be forced to put the cost on a high interest credit card. The Extended Service Contract saved me from the stress and an unexpected expense.
