Extended Auto Warranty Prices: Finding a Balance Between Cost & Worth

average price for extended warranties

One of the most important things that we’ve learned over the time that we’ve been in business is the difference between cost and worth. Many people will argue that they are the same thing, but they are actually quite different. And we cannot stress this difference enough when it comes to extended auto warranty prices.

We’ve explained what goes into extended auto warranty prices and why they’re so important but this article will demonstrate why the cost is worth the price.

Difference between Cost and Worth:

We’ll be brief on the subject. Now cost is the amount of something you must give up in order to gain something. Cost could mean money, time, and various other things. But the worth that this cost can bring to somebody can be different from person to person. Worth is the value that something brings to a person.

Think of it like you’re waiting in line to get into a hip night club. You want to get in as soon as possible but there is a very long line. The bouncer at the front is charging $20 to skip the line and go right in. So is the cost of paying $20 worth getting to skip the long line? In most cases, it depends on the person’s opinion whether it is worth it or not.

When it comes to extended auto warranty prices, the worth far outweighs the cost.

You see, over time your vehicle will eventually break down. We hate to say it, but it’s true. Your vehicle will not last forever. And as you put more wear and tear on your vehicle, you push it closer and closer to needing repair.

You might scoff now, but you don’t realize the severity of the situation until you see that repair bill. When you’re staring at a $3,600 engine replacement or $2,800 transmission repair bill, you’ll see why worth exceeds cost when it comes to extended auto warranty prices.

In reality, there isn’t a whole lot for worth to outweigh because extended auto warranty prices are surprisingly affordable. When you factor in the fact that parts, labor, and taxes are paid for in the event of a mechanical breakdown, in a couple uses you will have already gotten your money’s worth. Add in the fact that roadside assistance, complementary towing, and other bonuses are included at no extra cost, you really benefit from extended coverage.

*A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty”, but is not a warranty.  A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not. Endurance is an administrator of VSCs and does not sell warranties.*
