A: The best time to purchase an extended auto warranty is while your car is still under the manufacturer's warranty. That's because as your car ages and accrues miles, the cost for the warranty increases as does the likelihood of mechanical breakdowns and the cost for automotive repairs. It may sound counter-intuitive, but the same coverage up to 100,000 miles for a car with under 20,000 miles is usually less expensive than buying 40,000 additional miles of coverage at 60,000 miles. It's kind of like life insurance. It costs a lot less to purchase when you're 20 than when you're 60.
So, before your factory warranty lapses and you're faced with inevitable repair costs and higher rates, it makes sense to lock in the best rate for your extended warranty. It's better to buy now to sleep better later.
A: EasyCare "extended warranties" are really vehicle service contracts. Vehicle service contracts are often referred to as "extended warranties", "car repair insurance", or "breakdown insurance" by customers, but they are actually contracts between you and EasyCare under which EasyCare agrees to pay your repair facility for covered repairs. You buy and own your EasyCare vehicle service contract for a single fee which can be financed, and then EasyCare pays for all covered repairs for the life of the contract.
A: Bring your car and your EasyCare vehicle service contract to Steve Padgett's Danville Honda. We will call EasyCare for pre-authorization before work is performed, and EasyCare will pay us directly on your behalf by credit card. It's that simple!
A: No. EasyCare pays the repair facility directly. Your only out-of-pocket expense is the deductible, if applicable, and any charges not covered under your contract, such as maintenance work or non-covered repairs.
A: Yes, you do not have to have a copy of your paperwork or ID card to get coverage. Simply visit Steve Padgett's Danville Honda and ask us to call the EasyCare claims line and reference your VIN number (this is a permanent number located in your vehicle) to obtain authorization for any covered repair.
A: Absolutely. Each EasyCare plan has a 30-day full money-back guarantee (provided there are no claims). After 30 days, upon your written request, EasyCare will refund the pro-rata unused portion of your warranty.
