3 Reasons Your Used Car Should Include an Extended Warranty, St. Peters, Missouri

There are many benefits to purchasing a used car, including lower sale price and less depreciation that keeps your investment budget-friendly. If you plan on purchasing a pre-owned vehicle soon, consider the benefits of an extended warranty. Also known as service agreements or contracts, these warranties extend past standard warranty expiration dates that typically come from vehicle manufacturers.

3 Ways an Extended Used Car Warranty Benefits You

1. Saves on Auto Repair Costs

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of an extended warranty on your used car is the money you will save on auto repair costs. This is especially important if the car you’re buying is older and requires more maintenance to remain in safe, drivable condition. Extended warranties can also include roadside assistance services to help you sidestep a variety of costs following a breakdown, including oil and tire changes as well as towing.

2. Prolongs the Life of Your Vehicle

If you need wheel alignment services but are on a budget for the month, for example, you might wait several weeks to schedule maintenance work, leaving your vehicle’s tires vulnerable to premature wear and your car to poor handling among other problems. Extended warranties help you stay on top of maintenance and repairs so your vehicle lasts longer.

3. Provides Peace of Mind

Purchasing a used car doesn’t have to be a gamble when you work with the right dealership and opt for an extended warranty. It offers invaluable peace of mind because you know you won’t pay out of pocket for repairs, and you don’t have to keep your fingers crossed that your purchase isn’t a “lemon” that will fall apart over the next few months. Instead, you get to feel confident about your budget-conscious investment.
