Take the time to ask these questions when looking at warranty cover for your car:
Is the warranty insurer Australian owned?
Is the cover an insurance warranty?
Does the insurer manage the claims process?
Can I really claim up to the purchase price of the car?
Can the policy be cancelled?
Is the policy refundable?
Can I choose my own mechanic for servicing?
Do I only have to service the vehicle as per the manufacturer guidelines and no more?
Can I choose where I have my car repaired in the event of a claim?
Is the policy transferable if I sell the car to a private buyer?
Is there a cooling off period following purchase of the cover?
Is it a manufacturer type warranty?
Is there no excess on claims?
Will they not use second hand parts?
Does the cover have other financial benefits?
If you're considering a competitor product, the answer to some of these questions will be NO!
Why risk saving a few dollars if you can't get all these benefits.
