What are vehicle service contracts and do you need one?
Vehicle service contracts, also referred to as extended car warranties, are written agreements between a dealer or third-party and a vehicle owner. Depending on the type of contract and its coverage, the contract specifies that the company will pay for any repairs that the car might need, if it breaks down while the contract is valid. Of course, the VSC seller will only pay for the parts/components of the car that are covered in the contract.
Most vehicle service contracts also include 24/7 emergency roadside assistance, rental vehicle reimbursement, travel reimbursement, the possibility to transfer the contract to someone else (in case you sell your car) and the possibility to pay for the contract in several installments.
Vehicle service contracts offer coverage for 3, 4, 5 years or more, varying from company to company and depending on your car’s make, mileage and age.
Most car owners want to continue using their cars after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. The original warranty is usually available for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first) or maybe 4 or 5 years, depending on the car make. After that, your vehicle is left exposed, unless you buy a new warranty to keep it protected. And as cars get older and gather more miles on the meter, they become more prone to breakdowns. Repairs can get quite expensive, which means you’ll have to come up with a lot of money at once, if your car suddenly breaks. That is why a VSC is very useful, because it can save you a lot money.
