Sometimes used cars will come with coverage (this is rare) if they are certified pre-owned or car dealers will sometimes offer to sell you an extended with your vehicle.  If you buy a car from a person it generally will not have an extended coverage on it. Find out how to check if your car has an extended coverage with this quick and handy guide.

Do the following to CHECK if your car has an extended coverage plan:

1. Check the paperwork that came with the purchase of your vehicle. It will say either VSC or Vehicle Service Contract. If you do not see any paperwork, you can also call the dealership where you purchased the vehicle and ask them if you have one.

2. Look for the expiration of the policy.  The expiration of the policy will be listed as years OR mileage on the odometer whichever comes FIRST.   

3. Check the odometer on your car to see how many miles your car has. If you are beyond the expiration date OR mileage your warranty is expired.

It is very important to know that the expiration is date or miles whichever comes first. For example, if the car’s original warranty is 5 years or 100,000 miles on the odometer and it has been 5 years since purchase, it is expired even if your odometer is only at 85,000 miles.

Do not wait until your vehicle’s current warranty is expired to take out a new policy. New policies will have a waiting period before you can make your first claim, typically at least 30 days and 1,000 miles on the odometer.  You do not want a lapse in protection, that is usually when something will go wrong.
