Best Warranty Types for Used Cars

on June 8, 2022

If you just recently purchased a used vehicle or are looking around actively to purchase a used vehicle, there are a lot of different things to look out for when it comes to purchasing a used vehicle.  You want to find a car that is going to last a long time, and not have a ton of issues.  

Many people don’t consider the vast amount of additional problems and costs when it comes to purchasing a used vehicle such as maintenance, repairs, and of course unexpected malfunctions and breakdowns.  If you purchased a used vehicle, or plan to purchase a used car, we highly recommend purchasing a DriveSmart extended car warranty so that you never have to pay out of pocket for unexpected repairs.  

Are Extended Warranties on Used Cars Worth It?

At DriveSmart, we always recommend equipping a used vehicle with a protection plan.  This is because no matter how well you take care of your vehicle, the mechanical parts are going to experience wear and tear eventually, which could lead to repairs.  By purchasing an extended auto warranty through DriveSmart, not only do we cover your vehicle from repairs, but we also include an introductory maintenance package that includes oil changes, tire rotations, windshield wiper replacement, and brake pad and shoe replacement.  This introductory maintenance package will help keep your vehicle moving, without paying out of pocket for simple maintenance that is required on all vehicles.  

Used cars are typically older, and the older the vehicle the more likely they are going to experience issues.  Vehicles that are over 10 years old can start to fall apart if they are not properly taken care of, and these repairs can get very expensive.  Having a protection plan through DriveSmart will help cover the most important components of your vehicle, so you can receive the peace of mind needed to stay on the road.  

DriveSmart with Our Protection Plans

If you purchased a used vehicle, DriveSmart has you covered by offering multiple different coverage options to fit your vehicle and budget.  Our Voyager and Voyager+ plan is our powertrain equivalent option that is designed with budget in mind.  It provides coverage for the most expensive and important parts of the vehicle such as the engine, transmission, drive axles, air conditioning, and fuel systems. This is the best option for an older used vehicle with high mileage.  

If you have a newer used vehicle, DriveSmart would also recommend our Travelers protection plans.  These plans offer the same coverage as Voyager, along with more key components such as Steering, Electrical, Brakes, and More.  The Travelers plan is the most comprehensive coverage for your vehicle.  

A DriveSmart protection plan does more than just protect you from out-of-pocket repair bills, all plans come with emergency roadside assistance, car rental assistance, trip interruption reimbursement, and more benefits to keep you on the road.
