Hopefully by now, you already know that purchasing an extended vehicle protection plan when your warranty has expired can save you thousands of dollars should a problem occur. You should also know that an extended vehicle protection plan should not keep you from maintaining your car. It’s very important that you still get the regular vehicle maintenance that is advised in your owner’s manual.

Such maintenance includes the following:

  • Oil changes
  • Filter changes
  • Tire Rotations
  • Other suggested services

Ignoring these items will result in your car running inefficiently. Most extended warranties require that you maintain your vehicle in order for the agreement to be valid. If you neglect your car and a mechanic can see that, your claim can be denied. You should also know that if you fail to get your oil changed on time, your extended vehicle protection plan will be canceled. This just means that you should continue to take good care of your car.
