Labor rates to work on vehicles are at an all-time high. Right now the average labor rate per hour is around $120. In some states it runs even higher! The average repair cost is close to $900 per repair. If you are planning on keeping your vehicle having a warranty on it is not just worth it, it’s a necessity.
Yes, factory warranty usually lasts 3 years and 36,000 miles. Most people plan on keeping their cars past 36,000 miles and 3 years which is when majority of car repairs happen. Cars usually won’t have issues when they are brand new, it happens when after the factory warranty expires.
Each plan’s cost is based on 4 things: state in which you reside, how old your vehicle is, how many miles it has, and what type of car it is. The plans cover the cost of parts and labor rates and are created to save you money when the unexpected happens. Call 800-986-3608 to see what it will cost to cover your vehicle.
Yes, each plan typically has a deductible of $100 per visit. It is referred to as a shopping list deductible, meaning you only pay per visit, not per item.
You can take your vehicle in to what dealership or mechanic of your choice. As long as the shop has an ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) mechanic you are allowed to use whichever facility you are comfortable using.
We recommend you take your vehicle into the shop right away, that way hopefully they can catch a small repair before it turns into a big one. From there, you will hand the service department your I.D card and pay them your deductible. The service department will contact us and let us know how much the labor and parts will cost. Once we approve the repair we will pay the facility directly with a credit card. Once the car is fixed they will contact you letting you know it is done, by the time you pick it up your repair has already been taken care of.
