Should you buy an Extended Auto Warranty for Your Teen's Automobile

Should you buy an Extended Auto Warranty for Your Teen's Automobile Image

One of the questions that parents have to deal with when buying a first car for a teenager, apart from the issue of securing car insurance, is what type of warranty to secure for the car.  Some people wonder if there is any point in getting an extended auto warranty, especially if there is a good chance that the teenager will be replacing the car themselves in a couple of years.  Actually, getting the best possible extended warranty is a good approach, regardless of your teenager's plans.

The whole idea of an extended Car Warranty is to obtain the most comprehensive benefits possible in the event that some major component should fail for any reason other than user negligence.  To this end, you can see investing in that extended warranty plan as a way of safeguarding yourself from a significant amount of expense down the road.  Since there is a good chance that you would end up paying for any work done on the car anyway, why not take out a warranty plan that will help keep expenses to a minimum?

As a side benefit, most extended auto warranty plans will require the owner to be responsible in terms of maintenance and upkeep.  This can help you teach your fledgling driver how to properly take care of a car, ensuring that it is dependable and lasts for a decent amount of time.  Should some covered event take place during this period, this is only one more way to demonstrate to your youngster why an extended auto warranty is worth the cost, and what benefits it really does provide in the long run.
