Extended Service Contract vs. Extended Car Warranty
Q: What is the difference between an extended service contract and an extended car warranty?
A: The two often get confused, but technically speaking only a manufacturer can provide a warranty and only they can extend it. The products and services offered by American Automotive Service Solutions are extended service contracts. These contracts work like insurance to protect you against the cost of covered repairs. A reasonable premium covers you against breakdowns and repair bills.
Q: When should I invest in an extended service contract?
A: While there is no bad time to invest in a vehicle protection plan, one of the best times to call American Automotive Service Solutions about an extended service contract is right before your manufacturer’s warranty expires. This allows us the time to get you set up with a new set of coverage before anything goes wrong with your vehicle. Often times, this is seen as an extended car warranty from the manufacturer, but in fact, most of our plans exceed the warranties provided by the manufacturer.
Q: Will an extended car warranty really save me money?
A: If your extended car warranty is provided as an extended service contract through American Automotive Service Solutions, yes it will save you money. Each vehicle service contract that we furnish not only protects you from car repair costs; it also comes with roadside assistance and trip interruption coverage that can save you on towing and expenses incurred with even minor problems.
Q: Why does my new extended service contract or extended car warranty have a waiting period?
A: The waiting period was designed after careful consideration and feedback from our customers. Many of our customers have told us that they are too busy to schedule a vehicle inspection to take place before their policy can take effect. So, in order to save everyone time and money, we instituted a simple waiting period to ensure that every car is in good working order. This protects our company from scams and helps ensure our loyal customers can still get the service they need.
