Woman Standing Outside of Car With Keys

An extended warranty provides extra vehicle protection that could be ideal for your driving needs and lifestyle. To help you make an informed decision before heading to our Milton Martin Honda dealership in Gainesville, review the following guide! Then, contact us to schedule a test drive!



Extended Warranties, Defined

If a driver purchases an extended warranty along with a new or used vehicle, they enjoy ongoing maintenance coverage once the OG powertrain warranty ends. An extended warranty is subsequently an additional protective measure or a “parachute” that covers maintenance expenses in the event of an accident or any other incident calling for major vehicular repairs. Depending on the type of repair, the extended warranty covers some or all of the cost.

So, Are Extended Warranties Worth It? What Do They Cover?

When figuring out if you should buy an extended warranty, keep in mind that plans vary by vehicle manufacturer and dealer. However, they typically cover services such as:

  • Towing
  • Roadside assistance
  • Engine and transmission maintenance/repairs
  • Safety restraint replacements
  • And more!

New & Used Vehicle Extended Warranties

While extended warranties apply to new and used vehicles, there are several considerations about both options to keep in mind. Before getting behind the wheel of your new ride and driving around Flowery Branch and Buford, review these factors:

New Vehicles

  • Vehicle Swap: If you will replace your new vehicle over the next decade, you probably can forgo the extended warranty. Why? Because vehicles are more reliable than ever and are less likely to break down with the right care.
  • Long Haul: Should you expect to drive your new car, truck, or SUV for 10, 15, or more years, an extended warranty helps protect your investment and provides peace of mind.
  • Insurance Coverage: Your insurance coverage helps you answer the “Are extended warranties worth it?” question. Depending on the amount of specific coverage your plan provides, you might not need an extended warranty.

Used Vehicles

  • Inspection: Getting a used vehicle inspected tells you what to expect regarding maintenance and whether an extended warranty is necessary.
  • Ownership Length: Depending on how long you wish to keep the vehicle, it might be best to purchase an extended warranty.
