Like any other type of insurance policy, what will get covered on your car will largely depend on how much you are willing to spend. The one obvious benefit that a used car warranty gives you is peace of mind, something that most people will agree, money can’t buy. When a car gets to a certain age the chance of something going wrong increases and the probability of having to get it to a garage and spending a sizeable amount of your month’s income, maybe even more, is likely.
Whilst a car warranty is unlikely to cover wear and tear or entertain the idea of covering an already failing car, if you have a car that is worth covering then it is important to take the time to find a reputable company. Look for one that will offer you a detailed warranty, one that can cover everything from all mechanical, all electrical and all electronic parts. Often, the only part you have to play in gaining such a comprehensive warranty is to ensure you service the car in question annually and there are no known problems or faults with the car prior to signing up, this along with actually paying for the warranty.
If this criterion is honoured you will find that the engine, gearbox, clutch, drive train and running gear, braking system, fuel system, cooling and heating systems, electrical systems, instruments and oil seals gasket are all covered. In fact, cover will include some things you may never have heard of and the good thing about a comprehensive warranty is you never will need to, in detail that is.
