Why Choose a CARCHEX Warranty?

Great Prices and Great Service

Many drivers purchase their warranty plans from their car dealership. Don’t make this mistake. Car dealerships often:

  • Provide fewer warranty options
  • Include high markups
  • Haggle over every last penny
  • Apply lots of pressure
  • Limit your choice of mechanic and replacement part options

CARCHEX offers a better customer experience and a more competitive price on its warranties. We leverage our immense buying power to bring you the most affordable, comprehensive protection plans on the market. This equals great savings for our customers.

Thousands of Repair Shop Options

When your car needs a repair, visit the licensed auto repair shop of your choice (dealership, local mechanic or national repair chain such as Goodyear, Firestone, or Pep Boys). With over 30,000 covered repair facilities in the US, you’ll have access to many convenient service locations.

Direct Payments of Claims

With CARCHEX warranty coverage, covered claims are paid directly to the repair facility. That means our customers do not need to wait for a reimbursement. It’s fast, easy, and convenient.

Save Money with a CARCHEX Warranty

Are you one of the 63% of Americans who cannot pay for a $500 car repair? You’ve likely learned that $500 can add up fast at the auto mechanic — parts and labor can easily cost more than that. An extended vehicle warranty from CARCHEX can save you from hefty unexpected bills at your car repair facility.

  • If you have a used or certified pre-owned vehicle, do you have any protection against a surprise repair bill?
      • The longer that your used car has been on the road, the more you’ll need to prepare for the cost of unexpected repairs.
  • If you bought a new car at the dealership, you may have a factory warranty covering your car. While factory coverage many seem adequate, review the fine print on your plan to understand exactly what repairs are covered — and more importantly, which repairs are not included.
      • Also remember that after your warranty expires, you’ll be on the hook for all repairs to your vehicle.

Be prepared for surprise, expensive car repairs. An extended car warranty from CARCHEX will give you peace of mind that you’ll be back on the road in no time.

Additional Benefits from a CARCHEX Warranty

CARCHEX warranty coverage is not simply about the protection from paying for expensive car repairs. Here are some additional benefits to purchasing an extended vehicle warranty from CARCHEX:

  • Resale Value. An extended warranty will usually increase your car’s resale value. That means more money in your wallet when you sell your car.
  • Support at the Repair Shop. With a CARCHEX warranty, you’ll know that you’re not alone at the auto mechanic. CARCHEX provides customer support in dealing with car repair facilities, so you can rest assured that you’re getting a fair deal from your mechanic.
  • Extra Benefits. With a CARCHEX warranty, you’ll get additional benefits such as fully transferable warranty terms, vehicle history reports, free road service, and trip interruption protection.
