Auto Repair Warranty?
If you are one of the few people that have never had to deal with auto repairs, you can count yourself as one of the lucky ones. It is not fun. The confusion and hassle are enough to make you want to stop driving. In today's society, however, giving up driving is simply not possible for most people. Our lives have become very vehicle-dependent. You have kids to shuttle around, commutes to and from work, and your own social and community commitments to keep up with.
What happens when that very dependable auto that we rely on so much has the nerve to break down? Wasted time and energy, added stress, and either a lighter wallet or a higher credit card balance, that's what happens. On the other hand, you may have made the smart decision to purchase an auto repair warranty also known as:
- a vehicle service contract
- an extended auto warranty
- or mechanical breakdown insurance in states like California and Oregon
In this case, you have significantly reduced the hassle by purchasing valuable protection to provide you with both financial security and peace of mind.
Financial Security Against Costly Auto Repairs
Let's face it, in today's economy it's getting harder and harder to hold on to our money. Cutting corners has become the norm for nearly everyone. Most people think of coupons when trying to cut corners, and that's fine if you are only out to save a few bucks. But when it comes to something major like an auto repair that can cost you thousands of dollars, saving a buck or two isn't going to make too much of a difference.
If you're considering buying an auto repair warranty, it is important to know that the cost of repairs has increased significantly in the past few years. Vehicles are becoming more and more complex, resulting in escalated parts costs and higher labor rates than we've ever seen in the past. Unfortunately, this trend is likely to continue. After all, vehicles probably aren't going to be simpler in the future, and repair facilities aren't expected to charge less, are they?
To prepare yourself for these future rising costs of both parts and labor, you can purchase an auto repair warranty at today's prices to cover the increased costs of parts and labor that tomorrow will bring. Not only will it ensure your financial security against tomorrow's high parts and labor costs, but it will be there for you when you need it most: vehicle breakdown. The bad thing about auto repairs is that they never seem to occur when you are financially ahead of the game. It always seems to happen three days before your next paycheck, or when five bills are due. Making sure your vehicle is protected with an auto repair warranty is one way you can afford to get the vehicle back on the road as well as pay those bills.
I realize it may not be easy to come up with the full cost of a good auto repair warranty, but there are companies out there (like autoPOM!) that will allow you to pay month-to-month, so you're not financially strapped. Just another thing to keep in mind while researching auto repair warranties!
Peace of Mind Knowing You’re TCO
There are no words sweeter in the English language than "Taken Care Of", and to hear it uttered by your mechanic is like music to your ears. I'm pretty sure it's something I will never tire of hearing! It's especially nice to hear it when you are facing a crisis, such as when you're far from home and stranded on the side of the road with a vehicle breakdown. An auto repair warranty worth its salt will be able to cover all of these problems:
- With one call you should have 24-hour Emergency Roadside Assistance to tow your vehicle to the nearest repair facility
- Trip Interruption to take care of your room and board if you're stranded overnight
- Rental Car coverage to get you in another car and on your way
- Contract provisions that will cover the cost of both parts and labor for your repair
