How To Protect Your Vehicle Beyond Basic Insurance
Have An Extended Auto Warranty? Gold Wing Motors Works With Them All!
When it comes to vehicle coverage, most car owners only think of insurance. Unfortunately, insurance only covers things like accidents and theft, but not mechanical breakdowns. As you know, cars have a multitude of important mechanical parts needed to function. The good thing is there is a very simple and effective solution – an extended auto warranty. Most people don’t get an extended warranty on a new car until the manufacturer warranty expires. This protection plan keeps you covered beyond the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty.
Extended Auto Warranties
An extended auto warranty is the ultimate protection for your vehicle. In the event that your car suffers extensive damage, you’ll need additional coverage to have it repaired. This kind of contract is also called a service agreement, maintenance agreement, or service contract. It mitigates repair costs on a new or used vehicle. Keep in mind that an extended auto warranty is not the same thing as a manufacturer’s warranty. Extended warranties become active when the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. It’s necessary to obtain an extended warranty before your manufacturer’s warranty expires. If your car’s warranty has expired, you may be able to still get an extended warranty depending on the type of car you have. An extended warranty can cover your car bumper to bumper or only cover certain components of the car. Life is full of surprises. Give yourself the best protection possible ahead of life’s undetermined events.
Gold Wing Motors Accepts Your Auto Warranty
If your vehicle has been damaged and you have an extended auto protection warranty, you can take your vehicle to Gold Wing’s ASC certified facility for service. Your claim will need to be made prior to the service performed on your vehicle. As a repair facility, Gold Wing Motors will contact your contract administrator and report that the claim needs to be made. If your plan includes a deductible, you will need to pay back first. The deductible is usually reasonable and it can be anywhere from $100 to $0. Never make the mistake of taking your vehicle to a repair facility that is unlicensed.
A normal warranty typically lasts 36,000 miles or three years while extended coverage goes beyond this. The most valuable option is long term protection that covers many years and many miles. There is a lot of information to sort through when it comes to choosing coverage options for different vehicle components. Contact professionals at Gold Wing Motors for assistance choosing the best option for you.
Think You Have Bumper To Bumper Coverage?
This type of coverage will include wiper blades, brakes, tires, and other components that wear out quickly. Often, batteries are not included within a warranty. Outside influences that damage the vehicle are not typically covered; for instance, a rock hitting your windshield and causing a crack. If your car is keyed, this is also considered an outside influence that may not be covered. Other than normal wear and tear items, a bumper to bumper policy covers nearly every component between the front and rear bumper that breaks down.
Wear and tear is considered as the typical deterioration incurred from regular vehicle use.
Normal wear and tear items are:
Windshield wiper blades
Endurance Auto Warranty
Even the most dependable cars break down. Manufacturers continue to make increasingly complex cars. Endurance offers warranties that help you protect one of your most important investments, your car. Endurance is a popular provider that offers different levels of coverage according to your vehicle use. The Premiere Plan is intended to protect important components on high-mileage cars. The Secure Plan takes care of only the vital components and the Superior Plan provides the greatest amount of coverage for your car. Lastly, the Supreme Plan offers exclusionary coverage or “bumper to bumper” protection. Endurance is a strong company trusted, and depended on, by many vehicle owners over the years.
The Endurance Auto Warranty covers parts and labor on the following parts:
Drive axle assembly
Front & rear suspension
Seals & gaskets
Take note that the seals and gaskets are only replaced as a part of a larger repair or replacement. Endurance offers 24/7 support in case you have any questions. To get your contract, you can request an online quote from Endurance to get the process started. Gold Wing Motors happily accepts warranty plans from Endurance. The very day your car’s protection from the manufacturer runs out, repairs are your responsibility. You can avoid paying high repair costs by getting an extended warranty with a low-cost deductible. The mechanic will be paid directly from Endurance for all labor and parts.
Carmax Easy Care Is Accepted At Gold Wing Motors
Carmax offers extended car service plans to car buyers. Easycare coverage transfers to the new owner of a car. So, buying a car with Easycare means the plan transfers to the new owner after a few documents are sent to the manufacturer verifying the warranty. You can potentially increase your car’s resale value by having a transferrable warranty.
This coverage includes essential components, such as:
What Makes an Extended Warranty Different?
It’s highly likely that a car buyer is offered an extended warranty. For starters, the extended warranty is meant to provide you coverage above and beyond what an owner receives with a basic warranty. This is the ideal type of plan for covering all bases. Whether your engine or other internal components are in need of repair, you’ll be taken care of. After the vehicle’s warranty from the factory has expired, the vehicle will be eligible for an extended warranty.
The plan offers protection based on the amount of miles or years. In some cases, the plan is based upon both miles and years. In an exclusionary policy, the car owner is given a list of uncovered parts. All parts not included in the list will be covered. An inclusionary policy is very similar. This type of policy provides a list of everything that will be covered.
This coverage is extra protection in the event that you need repairs on your car. This type of plan is ideal if you plan on keeping your car for at least five years or more. Review how reliable your vehicle brand is online. Reliability ratings will provide you this information. This may give you an idea of problems the brand has experienced with your model.
Different Types of Deductibles
You may have to pay the deductible on your vehicle either per occurrence, per part, or per visit. You can plan on paying no more than your deductible if you need repairs, which gives many car owners peace of mind. If you pay your deductible per occurrence, no matter how many times you have to visit the shop, you will only ever pay that amount.
How much can you expect your deductible to be? This is contingent on the agreed amount in your contract. This amount ranges, and can be $50, $100, or $200 depending on which component needs repair. In most cases, the deductible doesn’t exceed beyond this amount. A deductible that is higher than this could indicate that your coverage provider doesn’t have the cash reserves to pay more for your repairs. The deductible is designed to be affordable and make it easy to pay your repairs you may not have expected. Just about every car owner would rather pay $200 rather than $2,000 to have the transmission replaced. Your aftermarket extended warranty is powerful and can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Aftermarket Automobile Extended Warranty
Rather than getting basic coverage that lasts a few years, you can choose coverage that lasts seven or eight years. Extended coverage goes beyond the 36,000 mile per year mark, protecting you for 120,000 miles. This is a wise choice because as vehicles age, they certainly require more repairs. You can be almost certain that your vehicle will visit the service center at some point. A VSC or extended warranty plan helps you stay within the parameters of your budget too. For example, you suddenly have an issue with your engine which is covered by your policy. You’re not paying out of pocket for these unexpected costs. The price of your aftermarket warranty varies.

When purchasing your aftermarket warranty, consider how much you will be using the car and how many kilometers you will be traveling. Is this a summer car? Will you be using this car all year round? If you have a high end car such as a Porsche or BMW, know that this type of car requires special care offered by an extended warranty. To keep your warranty in effect, keep your records of maintenance and repair. Also, get your vehicle serviced in regularly scheduled intervals. Follow the maintenance schedule for your particular make and model, since each car varies. For example, the timing belt needs to be replaced every 50,000 to 70,000 miles. You may want to check the condition of the timing belt every 25,000 miles.

Aftermarket Warranty Benefits
Obtain your extended warranty from your Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or a third-party company.
Here are some examples of the benefits your plan offers:
Reimbursement for meal and lodging
What is a Powertrain Warranty?
The term powertrain refers to the engine, transmission, and suspension. Without a warranty, an engine that needs repair will have to be paid for out of pocket. One benefit of having this type of auto warranty is that the costs are passed to the manufacturer and not you. The repair company will be paid by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
It can be quite costly to pay out of pocket for parts and labor. You can save yourself the stress of wondering how expensive a repair will be by protecting your vehicle. Rather than paying for car expenses as they arise, you can proactively take care of repairs with an aftermarket warranty. Examples of what will not be include in your coverage are tire rotations and oil changes. As cars inevitably get older, it becomes increasingly likely that it will break down. Make your life easier by taking care of mechanical failures and breakdowns before they happen.
If you plan on driving a used car for more than three years, an extended warranty plan is an ideal option. Many car buyers today plan on keeping their vehicle for a decade. A long term investment like a car deserves long term care. An auto warranty is an excellent way to get the utmost coverage for your car.
