What Constitutes Good Auto Warranty Coverage

What Constitutes Good Auto Warranty Coverage Image

Auto warranty coverage is something that any car owner should maintain.  The problem is that coverage of this type is not uniform.  Simply put, some warranties are superior to others, in terms of the scope of the cover and the out of pocket expenses that the owner incurs.  For this reason, it is a good idea to know what distinguishes good auto warranty coverage from warranties that are somewhat mediocre.


One of the first things to look for in any auto warranty coverage is terms and conditions that are easy to understand.  This means that the provisions must be relatively straightforward rather than vague.  Ideally, the terms will be very precise in what is covered, how much of a discount is provided with various covered events, and what the owner must do in the way of maintenance and upkeep in order to claim coverage in specified events.  This helps to prevent miscommunications that could leave the owner with a major expense at a later date.


Keep in mind that many dealers will offer more than one auto warranty coverage plan when selling a new or used vehicle.  Along with making sure the terms are precise, make it a point to compare the benefits provided by each plan.  In some cases, you may find the basic plan provides everything you will need, based on your typical lifestyle.  At other times, a more comprehensive plan that costs a little more will be a better fit.  Go with the plan that is right for you and your budget, and chances are that the warranty will serve you well for a number of years.
