How To Claim an Extended Warranty for Used Cars

An extended car warranty is a warranty plan you can purchase to ensure coverage of repairs and replacements of certain parts of your vehicle. The extended warranty covers a specific period or mileage and extends beyond the limited manufacturer warranty.

If you’re wondering whether an extended warranty for both new and used cars is worth it, we will help you make a decision and show you how to claim your warranty in five steps.

What Does an Extended Warranty Cover on a Used Car?

  • Repair and replacement coverage
  • Gas delivery
  • Towing
  • Diagnostic fee coverage
  • Rental car services
  • Roadside assistance
  • Trip interruption service
