Maintaining your car with an Extended Warranty

With an Extended Warranty, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that should your car suffer major mechanical damages or electrical problems, you are covered and the costs will be paid for up to the limit on the option chosen. Usually, these breakdowns include items that are not covered by a Service or Maintenance Plan.

Cars have definitely become more expensive over time and buying a brand-new car, covered by the new manufacturer warranty, is not for everyone. When buying a secondhand car with a warranty that is close to expiry, it doesn’t really mean that you have to start worrying about unexpected mechanical failures as soon as the existing warranty is no longer valid. Today, there are a few trusted institutions that provide solutions to motorists in the form of warranty, service and maintenance plan extensions. 

Generally, an Extended Warranty is an insurance product that offers cover against the cost associated with labour and parts following mechanical breakdowns or electrical failures of a covered part.
