How to choose an extended auto warranty in Buffalo

Buffalo Skyline

When you purchase an extended auto warranty, both your car and pocketbook will stay in better shape over the long run. In Buffalo, severe winter weather and potholed roads can damage the parts and systems in your car. An extended warranty may pay for repairs and replacement costs.

An extended auto warranty is likely beneficial to you if any of the following is true:

  • You drive fairly often.
  • You plan to keep the car after the original manufacturer’s warranty ends.
  • You drive on roads that are not well-maintained.
  • You don’t want to pay for unexpected repairs.
  • You care about increasing the resale value of your car.

Note that extended auto warranties are not the same as an original manufacturer’s warranty, which often expires before many vehicles require repairs. Though a dealer may offer an extended auto warranty during a vehicle purchase, there are advantages to buying from a third party. Often there are fewer servicing limitations, and the cost is less.

Extended auto warranties in Buffalo can be purchased for both new and used cars, and can cover different car parts such as the engine, transmission, cooling system, electrical system and brake system. Coverage can also include roadside services, towing, rental cars and more. Companies offer these services to different degrees.

The deductible for an extended auto warranty usually is $100 or less, in most cases. Ask how much the deductible is and when it’s applied.

When choosing an extended auto warranty in Buffalo, consider how long you want the coverage period to last based on how long you plan to keep the vehicle. Warranties begin after a short waiting period. Determine when you are and aren’t covered and where you will be allowed to get service. Confirm that you can transfer the warranty to a new owner if you choose to sell the car. Finally, make sure customers have reviewed the company positively and recommend it.
