So, What Is an Extended Warranty?

Each plan varies, but if applicable, you can select additional coverage like towing or roadside assistance. This safety net can help with any needed repairs that pop up after manufacturer warranty coverage ends.

Extended Warranties: New Cars vs. Used Cars

You can opt for an extended warranty on a new or used car. Keep in mind that coverage will vary, and there are a few factors to keep in mind before making a decision:

New Vehicles

If you are considering an extended warranty for your new car, the first question you should ask yourself is, “How long do I plan on keeping the vehicle?” If you plan on driving your car for 10 years or more, an extended warranty is likely a smart financial decision. If you plan on driving a new car every couple of years, an extended warranty may not be worth the extra cost.

Used Vehicles

If you are considering an extended warranty for a used car, be sure to factor in the reliability of your vehicle. You should also ask yourself how long you plan on driving the used car before opting for something else.
