Most automobile warranty companies will cover you car after a mechanical breakdown but what about wear and tear? A automobile warranty offering wear and tear coverage would pay for items like worn belts and damaged hoses. You can find wear and tear coverage, but it's almost always paired with mechanical breakdown coverage and it isn't typically offered on high-end cars or cars with lots of expensive parts. For those cars sometimes your only option is to buy a policy directly from the dealer or to start a savings account specifically for car repairs. Both mechanical breakdown warranties and wear and tear warranties are best bought as soon as you buy your car or as soon as the dealership warranty ends since they are cheapest this way.
Look for specific coverage, such as mechanical breakdown, for your car, truck or RV with automobile warranty key terms as well as the following resources:
1. Warranties offered for mechanical breakdown
2. A discount extended car warranty covering wear and tear
3. Extended vehicle warranties and special terminology for RVs
Read the fine print in automotive extended warranties for basic coverageMost of us can handle paying for common wear and tear repairs like oil changes or new hoses. Basic coverage for mechanical breakdown will cover high-dollar repairs but, if you're not careful, you could be signing up for automotive extended warranties that don't cover things like fluids and labor charges involved in mechanical repairs.
Get even more from your extended auto warranty with wear and tear coverageIf you have a little extra to spend on your extended auto warranty, consider buying from a company that also offers wear and tear coverage. More often than not, tacking wear and tear coverage onto your car warranty increases the price only minimally. And buying wear and tear coverage in addition to mechanical breakdown coverage from a reputable company will make your warranty truly hassle-free.
Find RV-specific vehicle warranty services onlineBuying vehicle warranty services is a whole other ball game than buying a discount extended car warranty. Because recreational vehicles are used for extended travel, the wear and tear happens faster than it would on a traditional vehicle. But the sometimes-expensive coverage for RVs is a wise purchase if you plan on doing lots of traveling, especially if the policy comes packaged with roadside assistance.
- Most extended auto warranties are not insurance policies though they are routinely sold and purchased as such. The insurance industry is highly regulated, whereas the auto warranty industry is not, so buyer beware.
