Getting an Auto Warranty for Your Car

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

When you get an extended warranty for you car, you will have not only the peace of mind of knowing that should there be any malfunction it can be summarily repaired, but also that you can take it in to the repair shop of your choice and have the cost of the claim covered by the company with whom you drafted the contract. The toll that both everyday or more strenuous driving can take on your automobile make it a inevitable truth that engine parts will wear down, heat will cause damage, and the once functioning mechanical components will breakdown. Having a comprehensive auto warranty will appease your worried mind not only during that frustrating time when your vehicle is not in working order, but more importantly, before and after it has been repaired, so that your brain can concentrate on thinking about more important things than whether you can afford to have your car out of commission.

An extended warranty can more or less cover anything you want it to cover, so that the unknown demons of blown tires, dead batteries, or other disasters which need the aid of a towing company, can be no longer a dreaded nightmare. As far as the repairs go, the company you buy your warranty from will offer you an array of choices for paying deductibles when you visit the repair shop. If you can afford it, and think it is in your best interest, then you can choose a zero deductible auto warranty so that you need never pay anything extra when you take you car in for a warranty-covered repair. The other option is to pay a per-visit rate, making it so that you pay a fixed deductible rate whenever you need a repair done on your car.

There’s always the concern of what to do when your car has to go into the shop to get fixed, and you still have to go about your daily business without it. Most auto warranties you get for your car will cover this obvious inconvenience, providing you with a much needed rental car free of expense, so that you won’t be unduly put out by your lack of a vehicle. Further, you’ll want to be sure that, in the event you sell your car before the contract of your comprehensive auto warranty is up, you can transfer the insurance to the new owner with as little transfer fees as possible. An added plus to this, of course, is that your used car will be of far higher value in the marketplace if it is still under warranty, which is an incentive to prospective buyers to buy from you instead of from some other bloke.

Getting a warranty for your car, whether extended or under a regular plan, can be an integral aspect of automobile ownership, not only for your own sanity, but for the sake of your pocketbook for years to come.
