Top Five Reasons to Purchase an Auto Warranty

Happy Drivers

The road to purchasing an auto warranty will never be a straight shot for any vehicle owner. Auto warranties are a never-ending road of information and opinions that make it hard for anyone to decipher between fact and fiction. If you find yourself on this never-ending road, don’t worry! Auto Warranty Providers of America is here to guide you towards the best protection for your vehicle.

Let’s talk numbers…

Many Americans are choosing to keep their cars for longer or drive them until the wheels fall off. Great! But what if your wheels literally fall off? Or what if that transmission finally calls it quits? Are you prepared to cover the cost of repairs plus labor?

Engine problems can cost upwards of $8,000, with labor costs ranging from $47 to $215 per hour. Without coverage, you could be stuck in the worst-case scenario; paying out of pocket for all of the repairs, labor, and rental car fees.

Benefits for New Vehicles

New vehicle owners purchase auto warranties when they plan to put a lot of miles on the car in a short period or want to utilize the added benefits that don’t come with a factory warranty, like roadside assistance. Factory warranties are great, but they don’t cover everything that could go wrong. Plus, they only cover you for a certain amount of years or miles.

For example, the basic warranty for Chevrolet is three years or 36,000 miles. BMW covers you for four years or 50,000 miles. Most people who buy new cars plan to keep them for a while and find comfort in knowing their car will remain protected long after the new car warranty expires.

Benefits for Used Vehicles

We can guarantee two things about used cars:

  • The factory warranty has expired
  • Mechanical repairs will become more frequent as the car ages.

Some of those repairs won’t be very costly, like a new alternator or a new taillight. Other repairs could cost thousands, especially without coverage.

Before you buy a used car, make sure you get a pre-purchase inspection by an independent mechanic. You’ll know whether or not you need an auto warranty depending on the mechanic’s list of potential future issues. If you drive a used car without an auto warranty, you are taking a huge risk! Like anything on this earth, cars will age, and aging isn’t always so pretty. It’s smart to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. Make sure to keep up with routine maintenance and purchase coverage for the type of maintenance you can’t afford. Say you decide your car isn’t aging well and you want to sell it for something new, chances are your auto warranty can be transferred to the new owner. Auto warranties can significantly increase the value of your car if you choose to sell it.

Personalized Plans

Auto warranty prices are not one size fits all. Warranty costs are dependent on the individual customer and their vehicle. Factors that determine the price include:

  • Type and Age of Car
  • Driving history
  • Coverage scope
  • Length of the Warranty

Because of all these factors, you have plenty of room to personalize a plan that fits your budget! We highly suggest you do your research, compare prices and plans, and take your time finding the right plan for you.

Added Value

Almost all auto warranty plans come valuable services like roadside assistance and rental cars at no additional cost to you. After a tough day, you’ll be thankful for the additional services and savings that come with your auto warranty.

Final Thoughts

Only you can decide if an auto warranty is right for you. We suggest fine-tuning your research. Start by finding out how much maintenance your vehicle requires, on average. What’s the history of your car? Then consider whether or not you need the peace of mind that comes with being fully covered. If you discover more pros than cons, an auto warranty is the best decision for you.

Exercising Access, Data Portability and Deletion Rights

To exercise your access, data portability and/or deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable CA User request to us by either:

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable CA User request related to your personal information. Where you make a data deletion request, data portability request and/or information access request through an authorized agent, we will require that you or the authorized agent provide us with a valid written authorization executed by both parties, with the validity of such document determined by us in our reasonable, good faith discretion.  Please submit such documentation to us by emailing us at:  Operations@consumerbridgeinc.com or sending us U.S. mail to: 3428 SW 15th Street Deerfield Beach, Florida 33442.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the personal information relates to you.  Making a verifiable CA User request does not require you to create an account with us.  We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable CA User request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to all verifiable CA User requests within forty-five (45) days of the receipt thereof.  If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.  Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable request.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable CA User request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.  If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
