Why Should I Get an Extended Warranty?

March 14th, 2018 by

2018 Double Acura

Drivers from Farmington Hills to West Bloomfield visit our dealership every day asking, “Why should I get an extended warranty?” An extended auto warranty provides extra coverage that lasts after your original warranty has expired. Not only does this prevent drivers from dealing with the stress of an unexpected trip to the service department, but many extended auto warranties are transferable – which can lead to better resale value!

Perks of the Extended Auto Warranty

An extended warranty may be offered by the original manufacturer or a third party, so the exact list of benefits will vary from plan to plan. However, here are some general guidelines to keep in mind during your research:

  • Extended warranties offered by manufacturers, like Acura Care, extend your original warranty past the expiration date. This means you can continue to  schedule your service with your certified dealership.
  • Third-party warranties may be honored at a variety of locations, so you have some flexibility if you find yourself stuck in Troy or Detroit unexpectedly.
  • Not only are components like the engine and transmission often covered, but you may get perks like towing and trip interruption benefits, too.
  • Be sure to see if your extended auto warranty is transferable. If you sell your vehicle, potential buyers love the peace of mind of an extended warranty package.
