Is a Service Contract (Extended Warranty) Right for You?

 

When it comes to service contracts, making the right decision hinges on your unique circumstances. Your financial situation, the vehicle you're eyeing, and your driving habits all play a crucial role. To guide you through this decision-making process, consider the following questions:

Financial Considerations

Are You Prepared for Unexpected Repairs?

Malfunctions, breakdowns, and faulty parts seldom occur at convenient times. If your vehicle payment is $500 and you face a $1500 repair bill, that month your investment jumps to $2000. Would you prefer peace of mind with a slightly higher monthly payment, or the uncertainty of unexpected expenses? Jansen Ford offers deductible options from $0 to $200, and even a "Disappearing Deductible" option if you choose our service locations.

Vehicle Insights

Understanding Your Vehicle's Longevity

Are you purchasing a new vehicle with plans to drive it until 100k or 150k miles? Is the model prone to specific malfunctions? If you're buying a vehicle with 80k or 100k miles and no manufacturer warranty, our team at Jansen Ford can provide detailed information often overlooked by phone or mail sales pitches.

Driving Habits

Aligning Contract Terms with Your Driving Patterns

Consider your annual mileage – 10k, 15k, or 20k miles? Ensure your service contract matches your usage; otherwise, you might pay for coverage you can't utilize. Jansen Ford offers a range of customizable options to match your driving habits, including terms, miles, and additional benefits.

Additional Considerations

Beyond Basic Coverage

  • Roadside Assistance: Does the service contract include it?
  • Rental Reimbursement: Will you be covered if your vehicle is in the shop?
  • Trip Interruption: What if your vehicle breaks down out of town?
  • Price Lock: Lock in current prices to shield against inflation.
