How Long Can I Maintain a Car Warranty
Securing the right Car Warranty is always a good idea, since the cover can be very helpful in deferring costs associated with malfunctions that are not connected with poor maintenance or some other action on the part of the owner. One question that many people have when it comes to maintaining a car warranty is how long to keep the coverage. The short answer is to do so for as long as you possibly can.
Depending on the make, model, and condition of the vehicle, the issuer of the car warranty may allow the coverage to remain in place for a number of years. This is especially true with cars purchased new and maintained properly. While eventually just about any vehicle will run up mileage as well as wear and tear that make it impossible to keep a warranty plan in force, the best bet is to hold onto the warranty for as long as possible. Doing so means that even if the car is several years old and something goes wrong, the warranty can still help defer expenses.
Every car warranty plan is based on certain standards and qualifications that the vehicle must meet. While those qualifications vary, many have to do with the normal wear and tear on the engine and transmission, the consistency of the maintenance schedule and the total mileage on the vehicle. Until your car no longer meets those standards, make sure you have a warranty in place. All it will take is one major event to make all your efforts worthwhile.
