You’ve taken the right steps toward buying a new car – researched safety reports, compared prices and taken the final test drive.
It may feel like the hard part is over, but this is when the selling really beings. You’ll be offered paint protection, maintenance plans, theft-recovery and tire care.
With so much information flying at you, it can be hard to keep up. One service the salesman is likely to recommend is an extended warranty (or service contract).
Extended warranties begin once the typical manufacturer warranties expire. While an extended warranty can provide peace of mind and freedom from future expenses, it’s important to make this decision with a clear head.
Considering the service won’t kick into gear for years after the initial purchase, it helps to know someone is on your side walking you through the process.
There are 3 ways the ASE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Weatherford make extended warranty service easier.
1. Find out what your extended warranty coverage includes
While your salesman may have presented the extended warranty as a complete cure-all, this isn’t quite the case. Often, the components most likely to wear out are the parts left out of coverage. Purveyors of extended warranties also provide different levels of protection, which may cover different parts and maintenance services.
Our experts are used to handling extended warranties across the board of coverage. We ask your provider the right questions and know the steps necessary to ensure you receive the best coverage possible.
2. Make sure you’re protected from the greatest expense
Does the provider cover all repairs in full? Is there a deductible? Do you pay for the services up-front and receive reimbursement later on? It’s usually necessary to read the fine print of your service contract to determine exactly who’s going to be paying the cost for the repair bill.
You are our customer. It’s in our best interest to ensure your extended warranty covers as much of the expense as possible. That’s why we go above and beyond to find out exactly what your extended warranty service includes and who should be footing the bill. We take on the stress so you don’t have to.
3. Determine whether you need extended warranty coverage
Extended warranty service should provide protection and peace of mind. Unfortunately, it often leads to further headaches and frustration. Our employees want to make your life easier.
If your vehicle is brought into our Weatherford car repair shop for a pre-purchase inspection, we’ll let you know whether you need extended warranty service at all. Our experienced staff considers the vehicle’s repair history, record of breakdowns and current warranty coverage.
This information provides a clear answer on whether or not extended warranty coverage will benefit you long-term.
While extended warranty service can be a great investment, it can also lead to unnecessary problems. We’ll help you avoid the major issues associated with extended warranties. Whether you’re from Weatherford, Mineral Wells, Hudson Oaks or Aledo, you can rest easy knowing your car is in our capable hands.
