When thinking about buying a Warranty for your used Vauxhall or extending your current Warranty whether you bought it through a dealer or privately bear the following in mind..
There are a wide range of mechanical breakdown policies (Car Warranty) available today. All are designed to protect buyers against the costs of sudden and unforeseen failure of a specified list of components on your vehicle. The covered components may vary according to the age and mileage of the vehicle, ranging from policies that provide wide protection on newer motors or used vehicles that are only a few years old, through to more limited covers for much older or higher mileage vehicles (50 000 miles or 60 000 miles is a fairly common benchmark here).
It is very important that you are offered the correct policy for the vehicle you are buying. Therefore you should really understand the level of you cover need for the particular model of vehicle you are buying to ensure that you actually do buy cover for the parts that are prone to failure. Generally, with a used car warranty the more extensive the level of cover i.e. protection includes a big range of components, the more you should expect to pay.
You should generally pay less for a policy with a restricted list of parts covered. Find out what the weaknesses are for the model of vehicle you are buying and get a policy to protect yourself armed with this knowledge.
More About Extending A Car Warranty
When buying a new Vauxhall car you will automatically be given a manufacturer’s warranty. The Manufacturer’s warranty can be valid for a period of between one and three years. Now there is a point which can often cause confusion so here is our chance to clarify for you. Under a standard manufacturers warranty you are free to get your car serviced at any service station / garage in the UK and still benefit from the manufacturer’s new car warranty, providing the service is carried out to the car manufacturer’s recommendations and you have informed the policy provider who you will be using. A used car dealership could also offer a warranty which extends a two year warranty to three years for you.
Such a dealer based warranty may have many more restrictions in the small print over the original manufacturer’s warranty, so be aware of this. Some of the restrictions could be things like limiting the mileage to a maximum of 60 000 miles or that services must be done by the same dealer who has given you the warranty. Policies May Also Have Other Limits. Warranty Policies will often have a maximum amount payable for any claim; this may range from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds. You are advised to check the adequacy of these limits bearing in mind the cost of breakdown for major components when deciding on the upper limits of your cover.
Some warranty policies have a betterment clause, in which case you would have to pay something if your vehicle was improved following repair. They may also have a maximum amount payable during the life of the policy. There may be an excess that you will need to pay yourself if you have to make a claim on your vehicle warranty. Some automotive components may have specific claim limits or excesses applied to the as well.
Wear and Tear
Engine failure can often be attributed to ’wear and tear’ as parts often wear down rather than break. If you do not want your warranty provider to reject a claim on these grounds you should ensure that it is clearly stated in the terms and conditions that both "mechanical breakdown" and "wear and tear" are covered by your policy.
