Frequently Asked Questions


General Questions

Before purchasing an auto warranty, ask the following questions:

What Is An Extended Auto Warranty?
An extended auto warranty (service contract) is an agreement between the owner of the vehicle and the Service Contract Company, obligating the Company to pay for repairs covered by the contract for a specific period of time. Your vehicle is a major investment. With a service contract from Auto Protection, you are protecting yourself from the unexpected cost of mechanical breakdowns. One major repair often ends up costing as much, or even more than the entire cost of the service contract. A service contract will ensure that your vehicle is always in the best mechanical condition.

What Types of Warranties Are Available?
Technically, there are two types of auto warranties available: The 1st type is called "exclusionary plan" (New Car Warranty) and the second type is "name component plan" (Used Car Warranty / Older Car Warranty) that offers multiple levels of coverage. The exclusionary coverage plan covers everything on your vehicle except components specifically listed in the agreement as being excluded. The list of excluded components consists mainly of routine maintenance items. On the other hand, the name component coverage plan covers only those components listed as being covered in the agreement. A name component coverage plan is intended to cover the major items on the vehicle compared to the exclusionary coverage plan that covers virtually everything.

Why Do I Need a Warranty For My Auto?
The cost of repairs (both parts and labor) is on the rise! Can you afford not to have an extended service contract for your vehicle? If you would like to stop paying for auto repair bills, then you are a perfect candidate for an extended service contract from Auto Protection. In addition to the high cost of repair bills, vehicles that have protection with us, are kept in much better shape, which increases the resale value. Peace of mind is only minutes away.
