Extended Service Contract / Warranty


Most Service Contracts (and other similar contracts) are agreements to cover auto repairs after factory warranties have expired. The items that they include vary from plan to plan, but they don't typically cover wear-and-tear or routine maintenance items such as brake pads, tires, air cleaners, or oil changes.

Some car service contracts providers offer "wrap" policies. Many vehicles come with powertrain warranties that are longer than the car's bumper-to-bumper warranties. A wrap policy provides extended coverage to repair anything other than the vehicle's powertrain


The first questions you need to ask yourself have nothing to do with the vehicle that you are buying. Are you someone who will have trouble sleeping the day after your car's manufacturer's warranty expires, thinking about the expenses you might be facing? If you say yes, you might want to consider a warranty for peace of mind.

Do you have the discipline to put a couple thousand dollars aside as part of your emergency fund to pay for unexpected repairs? If the answer is yes, you can probably skip the extended warranty. Do you put so much mileage on your car each year that you will quickly blow through the manufacturer warranty? If that's the case, you might consider an extended service contract.

Will costly car repairs bust your monthly budget, making it hard to pay for essentials such as rent, food, or utilities? Answer yes, and you might want to consider a warranty or extended service contract.
