What is a Vehicle Service Contract / Extended Warranty?
Most new vehicles come with a 3 year /36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper (comprehensive) manufacturer's warranty. Once the manufacturer's warranty expires, extended warranties take over - if you have one. A extended warranty provides for repairs of covered components during a specific period of time or a certain number of miles driven.
What is the "Original Manufacturer's Warranty"?
The 'Original Manufacturer's Warranty' is the initial warranty period provided by the vehicle manufacturer. This is usually a three year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, though some manufacturers have longer periods and/or mileage limits. In addition, some components of the vehicle might have longer warranty periods.
Is an extended warranty an insurance policy?
No. An extended warranty is a contract that provides payment for repair and/or replacement of covered parts, including labor.

Do you cover damage due to overheating?
Overheating damage is covered if the overheating was not the result of improper maintenance. We have the following advice concerning what to do in the event your car overheats:
- Turn off the engine
- If you see steam, do not open the hood. Wait until steam subsides.
- If you see smoke, call for help. Do not open the hood under any circumstances.
- Once the engine has cooled a bit and you no longer see steam, pop the hood latch.
- Open the hood as indicated in your owner's manual
- Check to see if you have enough coolant. The method for checking and replacing coolant can also be found in your owner's manual.
- If you need to add coolant, be VERY careful when opening the radiator. Be sure to follow all instructions.
- Close the hood, and start the engine.
- If a large amount of fluid begins to come out of the engine area, you may have a burst hose. Do not attempt to drive the vehicle as damage may occur.
