Extended Car Warranty – what does it cover?
What is extended car warranty and what does it cover are some of the most common questions we are asked here at Obvi. Been given a detailed policy but still don’t know what the small print means? We’ve had the same experience. That’s why we decided to completely change the way that extended warranty and gap insurance were sold in Western Canada, making the process better for Canadian consumers.
At Obvi, we understand that it can be confusing to sift through pages and pages of policy information with complicated jargon, when all you really want is the facts written in the clearest possible way. That’s why Obvi has a no jargon policy written in simple terms, and an easy to understand exclusion list; if it’s not excluded, it’s included.
What is extended car warranty?
When you purchase a new vehicle, it will come with a manufacturer’s warranty which typically lasts for between 3-5 years. Extended car warranty is something you can choose whether to purchase or not, and can come in different forms, see previous blog explaining the differences.
The main reason why people buy extended warranty is so that they save money and don’t have to worry about sudden expensive car repairs. For some drivers, having large car repair bills can be too much of a strain on their finances. For others, they just want to save money and have peace of mind in knowing that they are covered.
