Russ Van Arsdale was in for this week’s Consumer Contact talking about extended vehicle warranty protection.
Russ told us about a website that helps when comparing warranties and what are reliable warranty protection programs and which ones you should stay away from. The website that Russ suggested consumers to us is edmunds.com. He says search warranties on the website to get a list of manufacture warranties that are available. You can compare the costs and coverage of these warranties also through this website.
If considering third party warranties, Russ gave these tips. He said to compare the costs and terms carefully. Don’t hurry into making a decision, there are no “blacklist” of cars that don’t qualify for extended warranties, disregard robo-calls, and never give personal information or financial information to cold callers.
