Auto Insurance VS Auto Warranty
The difference between these two comes down to what they cover. A car warrantycovers certain types of mechanical breakdowns (parts and labor). Car insurance helps repair your vehicle from damage caused by a car accident, theft, fire, or natural disaster.
Why do I need an auto warranty?
Auto warranties protect you against covering costly repairs on your vehicle. You should consider a warranty if your car requires a lot of unexpected maintenance or your car is aging, and the factory warranty has expired. Other common reasons include peace of mind and extra perks, like roadside assistance.
Can I cancel my auto warranty?
This is an important question to ask when you speak to an auto warranty company. Once you find a company, make sure to read the fine print your policy paperwork.
Can I add one if my factory warranty has long expired?
Yes. It’s probably the smartest thing you can do when you own a used car. We always suggest researching your vehicle’s history to find common trends, like design or manufacturing defects. You can also learn a lot about your car’s future reliability from getting it inspected by an independent mechanic.
What’s covered and what isn’t?
Unfortunately, there is no straight-forward answer to this question. Every plan comes with different coverage and various factors that affect that price. Because of the purchasing process’s complexity, you don’t want to jump into a quick decision. Some of the most important questions to ask are:
- How will you be reimbursed for repairs?
- Does the company work directly with the auto shop, or do you have to pay out of pocket and reimbursed after the repairs are complete?
- How long do I have to wait for the company to approve the shop doing the repairs?
- Is the contract transferable if you decide to sell your car?
