What is an Extended Warranty?

An extended warranty is extra coverage you can opt in for when you’re financing that next vehicle. It provides additional maintenance coverage once your factory warranty expires. Consider it as an additional safety net in the event of problems once your major powertrain warranty has ended. If a major repair crops up, you’ll have the extended warranty to help cover the cost of repairs.

What Else Do Extended Warranties Cover?

Plans will vary between manufacturers and dealers in Pocatello, not to mention whether you’re getting it on a new or used car. Still, extended warranties may have options for coverage for the following:

  • Towing
  • Roadside assistance
  • And more

You’ll have the option of buying an extended warranty for a new or used vehicle, but they’ll work differently based on the condition of the car. Here are some tips Rexburg drivers should consider when they’re asking, “Should I buy extended warranties?”

New Vehicles

Used Vehicles

  • Be sure to have the vehicle inspected and an estimate created for any vehicle issues before you consider an extended warranty.
  • Have a good idea of how long you’re planning on keeping the vehicle, too.
