FAQ: Should I buy an extended warranty on a new car?

Typically, you don’t need a car extended warranty when purchasing a new vehicle from a dealership. However, if you buy a used car from a dealer (that’s new to you), the decision whether or not to buy an extended warranty can be made based on several factors. It’s important to consider the cost of the extended warranty, the reliability of the car, and your driving habits. The cost of an extended warranty will vary depending on the make and model of the vehicle, and the length of coverage.

Before purchasing an extended warranty, carefully consider the cost and determine whether it is worth it for your particular situation and your budget. It’s also crucial to consider your vehicle’s reliability. If the car is known for being dependable, then an extended warranty might not be necessary. On the other hand, an extended warranty can provide peace of mind if the vehicle is known for having mechanical issues or breakdowns.

Finally, your own driving habits should be taken into account. If you drive a lot, then an extended warranty is beneficial because chances are something will go wrong. On the other hand, if you are a more conservative driver and only drive a few thousand a year, then an extended warranty may not be necessary.
