Although the terms Used Car Warranty and Extended Warranty are inaccurate phrases, we recognize that most consumers commonly use these terms so you’ll find them used within the CARCHEX website. Bottom line, after the manufacturer’s warranty expires on your vehicle, you have nothing to protect yourself from expensive vehicle repairs, unless of course you have Extended Vehicle Protection.
CARCHEX’s Extended Vehicle Protection assures that all covered parts, labor, and sales tax (if specified in the extended warranty) required for replacement or repair of covered parts in your vehicle will be paid on your behalf by the administrator of your Extended Vehicle Protection.
In addition CARCHEX is the exclusive Extended Vehicle Protection (Used Car Warranty) provider, is recommended or is endorsed by the following companies: CARFAX, Edmunds.com, LendingTree.com, RepairPal, GetSmart.com, BuyingAdvice.com, DMV.org, myCarStats.com, PriceQuotes.com among other well known brands.

After you purchase an Extended Vehicle Protection Plan, you must continue to maintain your vehicle in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.
In the event of a mechanical breakdown, you call your pre-assigned toll free number provided for claims support. Take your car to any licensed repair facility and have them call the claims administrator to get the final claim authorized. Once the claim is approved, the repair shop will repair or replace the broken part(s) and the repair bill will be immediately paid with a corporate credit card. You will be required to pay your deductible directly to the repair facility (if applicable).
In the event of a breakdown while on the road, just call the number on the back of your roadside assistance card for 24 Hour Emergency Assistance.
