Extending your automobile warranty can give you peace of mind, especially if you want the car you just bought to last well beyond the original warranty from a dealer or the manufacturer. But when searching for a warranty, you want to make sure that the company that backs the warranty is reputable. While it may take a little bit of time and research, finding the perfect car warranty company will be worth the sweat.
Shop around. Contact the dealer where you purchased your car to ask about extended warranty plans. When shopping around, be sure to ask if you can see the contract before you make any final decisions. If the company will not let you see the vehicle service contract, then do not purchase from them.
Cross-reference the extended warranty provider with a reputable agency. Check with the Better Business Bureau, Standards and Poors, or A.M. Best. Make sure that the company's ratings are high and that the company is financially stable.
Once you have determined that the company is financially stable, all that is left is picking out the plan that best suits your needs. Ask questions about the plans. If the company is any good, they will be able to answer many, if not all, of your question. Then all you have to do is purchase the plan knowing that you have chosen the right company.
