When researching a company to do business with, it's important that you do your own comparisons. When comparing auto warranties, ask to see the contract since coverage varies greatly from company to company. Don't just compare an auto warranty by referencing a brochure ... always read the contract! We recommend you do your own research, and this auto warranty comparison checklist should help you get started. Whether you purchase a warranty from us or another company, your ultimate goal should be finding a company you can count on and trust.
When you purchase an auto warranty, compare the following:
Claims Paid History
Ratings & Reviews
Some important questions you should ask and compare before purchasing an extended auto warranty.
30 Day Review Period
Do you have 30 days to review the contract? Most companies offer a 30 day review period. This will give you time to review the auto warranty terms and discuss it over with your mechanic or family members. If your not happy with the contract, simply cancel for a full refund.
Be sure to check out the reviews and ratings of the business your buying from. Is the administrator an Accredited Member of the BBB? Are they in good standing? Do they have an excellent rating and review?
Everyone has to start somewhere, and we understand that. However, don't buy from a company who has no track record or can't provide you with a sample auto service contract. Chances are, they'll be gone in a few months and so will your money.
What exactly is covered or not covered on your vehicle? Do they offer both exclusionary and name component auto protection plans? What is the limit of liability? Is the plan backed by an A rated carrier? Review the contract!
How financially sound is the administrator and insurer? Do they have a history of paying for valid claims? Do they have enough set aside in reserves to pay for future auto repair claims? Look for a company that offers A rated auto plans!
Auto Protection began selling extended auto warranty plans to the public in 1997. The industry has changed since then -- more regulations, better coverage and more companies offering plans.

We offer flexible payment options, so you don't have to pay up front for the entire cost of the contract. At this time, we have chosen not to participate with the BBB, as they are a paid service, and do not monitor or help regulate false complaints. However, our Administrators has an A Rating with the BBB!
