What happens if you wait to extend your manufacturer’s warranty?
You will pay more for that same factory-backed coverage….
There are a lot of people who wait to extend the coverage on their vehicle, what many don’t realize is how costs can increase has time goes on.
Your car depreciates every day especially as you tack on miles so one way for that service contract to cost more is by adding more miles or years since your in-service date.
The more your car deprecates the high the repairs costs become which in turn causes the extension of your factory-backed warranty to cost more. Even before you reach 36,000 miles there are increases within that, one at 12,000 miles, one at 24,000 miles and the big one at 36,000 miles and beyond when you no longer are eligible for the new car plan and have to explore yours options with a used factory-backed service contracts. This can cost you hundreds of more dollars. Another way the price increase is just by Mopar’s annual price increase which typically come twice a year, but we do not have exact dates of when those will occur.
Most manufacturers offer a decent basic warranty, ranging from three to five years of bumper-to-bumper coverage, with some longer warranties on drivetrain and roadside assistance. But, in order to take advantage of more competitive payments, the car payments now often stretch beyond the coverage of a standard warranty. This might leave you paying for a car that’s started to incur out-of-pocket repairs or replacements of non-maintenance related failures. Adding optional protection plans on your new car purchase might be a great additional peace of mind.
