An extended warranty for your purchase of a luxury used vehicle is coverage for parts and repairs that kick in after the manufacturer warranty expires. You may be wondering why spend extra for an extended warranty beyond the bumper-to-bumper manufactures warranty? To begin with, an extended warranty can stabilize the costs associated with repairs, a breakdown and can even offer extended coverage for emergency roadside assistance and beyond.

Even if you don’t decide to get the extended warranty at the time you sign your agreement, you still have the option to purchase an extended warranty at any time before your factory warranty expires. You are, however, likely to see a considerable spike in the price if you purchase a third-party warranty after the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty. Here are the top 5 reasons to get an extended warranty on your luxury pre-owned vehicle purchase.

#1 Parts and Repair Coverage Beyond the Manufacturer’s Warranty

Vehicle repairs for luxury cars such as  LexusBentleyMaseratiLand RoverBMWMercedes-Benz or Porsche can be expensive. Beyond your original manufacturer’s warranty, a major repair can still cost you big bucks. The actual cost of repairs and parts with an extended warranty can easily save you money after just one major repair. This is especially true if your vehicle’s factory warranty only covers a limited number of repairs. The purchase of an extended warranty will save your pocketbook in the long run and you will know exactly what is covered.

#2 Vehicle Repairs at Your Preferred Licensed Garage

In many instances, your car’s factory warranty will require you to take your car to a dealer for all service and repairs. With a third-party warranty, you have the choice to get ASE certified repairs, service and parts from the repair facility of your choice. This is an important feature for luxury import automobile owners whose local dealership is not a convenient distance from where they are located. iAUTOHAUS of Arizona proudly serves customers in Tempe and surrounding areas including Chandler, Gilbert, Phoenix and Queen Creek.

#3 Roadside Assistance and Other Valuable Extras

The purchase of an extended warranty not only provides coverage for repairs and parts after the factory warranty expires and can provide worthwhile roadside assistance. In any instance that you cannot safely drive your vehicle or if you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, a full-coverage extended warranty can provide these valuable additional services:

  • Lockout Service
  • Fuel Delivery Service
  • Battery Jump Start Service
  • Flat Tire Repair
  • Towing or Winching Service

#4 Increase Your Vehicle’s Resale Value

The decision to extend your vehicle’s warranty coverage after the factory warranty has expired is a sound decision for buyers who want to protect their automobile investment. But what happens if you decide to sell the vehicle before the extended warranty expires? Well, the good news is that, for a small fee, extended warranties are usually transferable to the new owner. This can be an attractive addition to the buyer, and increase the resale value, by offering an extra piece of mind when buying a used vehicle.

#5 Peace of Mind
