Why Buy a Warranty for Your Vehicle?

In today’s world, reliability and dependability are more important than ever. It’s one of the top qualities looked for in a vehicle, and buying an extended warranty helps cement those qualities in your vehicle for years to come. Buying a vehicle can sometimes be a costly purchase, and it’s easy to overlook extended warranty as an additional cost that you don’t want to pay. Make certain to really think about everything that’s included in the cost of that warranty, and all the benefits, both in peace-of-mind and real-world coverage, that come with it. At Southside Dodge, we encourage you to think about buying a warranty for your vehicle, so we’ve outlined a few of the top reasons why it’s a smart decision.

Drive with Peace of Mind

There’s a lot of worries that come with modern life, but the health and condition of your vehicle shouldn’t be one of them. A need for service, maintenance and repair may pop up at any moment, with or without warning, and being covered by a warranty means you don’t have to worry about how any of that work will be covered. This also eliminates any hassle of trying to negotiate a price for substantial repairs, along with dealing with a mountain of paperwork, thanks to a warranty with coverage spelled out in plain details.

Coverage for Repairs & Maintenance

If something goes wrong on your vehicle your mind automatically jumps to how much it’s going to cost, and with maintenance, and especially repairs, that can get pricey. Depending on your vehicle’s manufacturer warranty and coverage, you won’t have to double-check your finances wondering if you’ll be able to cover it thanks to your warranty. This is doubly important with a warranty through us with a Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram, where you can be sure you’ll be getting the right parts for your vehicle, genuine and factory-approved for a reliable fit.

Beneficial Manufacturer Warranty Coverage

An FCA manufacturer warranty through a Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram dealership like ourselves ensures your model of said brand gets the absolute top-level of care and attention it deserves. Our extended manufacturer guarantee means that only qualified technicians, with years of experience working specifically on vehicles like yours and with tools and technology fit to serve their needs, will repair or service your vehicle. Being a certified dealership like ours means we only use genuine OEM parts and can source them better than off-make dealerships. Buy a Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram and get a manufacturer extended warranty to match for the absolute best level of care and coverage.

Resale Value

While extended warranties come in many different shapes and sizes, what one can do is help improve the resale value of your vehicle. If you’re looking to get rid of your vehicle, and it still has warranty coverage attached to it, that can be a great boon for a buyer. Again, car buyers crave reliability and knowing that they can depend on a vehicle for years to come, knowing that a warranty comes with the vehicle they want helps smooth over some of that weariness when buying and putting up their money. For you, the seller, it can help you sell it faster and at a greater price with a warranty coming along with the vehicle.
