Getting the Most From Your Auto Warranty

Getting the Most From Your Auto Warranty Image

While having an auto warranty in place is a good start, that warranty will not do any good unless the car owner knows how to get the most benefit from the terms and provisions provided as part of the deal.  This is where reading the warranty terms, including what must be done to lay claim to those benefits, is very important to the process.  Here is an example.

Assume that the terms of the warranty call for only having the vehicle serviced at authorised facilities.  In the event you did not read the terms and assume that use of any repair shop or garage you choose is allowed, this could mean that certain sections of the warranty cover are invalidated.  As a result, there are no price breaks on the routine maintenance and in the event that some major component in the engine or other system should fail, you could end up paying the entire amount of the repairs out of pocket.

Do not jeopardise the benefits contained in your auto warranty.  Make sure you know where to take the car for regular maintenance, and what must be done if a covered event does occur.  Knowing in advance how you must manage the warranty terms will make it easier to claim those benefits when and as appropriate, and save a lot of time as well as a great deal of money.  Failure to do so really defeats the purpose of having an auto warranty, since invalidated benefits are of no use whatsoever.
