extended car warranty estimate

Extended warranty powerplant (basic)

Protection that covers the engine, transmission, differential and the most expensive components. This warranty should be mandatory. If the engine breaks, for many of us, it will not be possible to pay the repair costs ($8,200 - $11,200) and we will have to sell the car. Except that, without a working engine, the car is worth only 10% or even 13% of its real value.  

Price: between $1,240 and $1,720; duration of 3 years / 60,000km.

The powertrain warranty protects you from major problems. In case of breakdown, a courtesy car is included and if you are far from home, a hotel for up to 5 nights.

Extended warranty privilege (powertrain + mechanical + electronic components)

If you want to avoid any unpleasant surprises and have peace of mind, then you might be interested in a more complete car warranty, also called privilege. It is possible to guarantee all the parts of your car, from the mechanics to the electronics.

Price between $2,270 and $3,680; duration of 3 years / 60,000km.

Expert advice on extended car warranty

Some cars have known recurring problems, so it makes sense to cover those particular parts. Protection plans are customizable.

Not all warranties are suitable, seek advice.

For a 2013 Nissan Rogue, warranting the powertrain and sensitive mechanical components like the CVT transmission is sufficient. While a 2018 Nissan Rogue equipped with "ProPilot" driving aids requires a more comprehensive Privilege warranty.

Buying a car is a big expense, it is possible to finance your car warranty extension. Pay every 2 weeks and drive with peace of mind.

How much costs an extended car warranty?

To give you an idea of the average cost of an auto warranty, we quoted a 2015 Nissan Rogue for a 3 years/60 km protection plan.

When make an estimate ?

When buying a car

When you buy a vehicle, it is common to purchase a warranty. At the dealership, you go to the "F&I" office, which is the name of the automotive financial products. If you are buying from a dealer, ask for a Kiwiz quote to compare. We are 20-30% cheaper for the same extended warranty product.

When selling a car

Selling between individuals is not easy and the last thing you want is to receive a call from the buyer a few days after the sale asking to pay for the repairs. Taking out a warranty before the sale allows you to sell at a higher price than the market price and reduces the time it takes to sell. Warranty contracts are transferable between individuals. This means that the buyer will be covered by the warranty.

When all is well!

We often think of purchasing a car warranty when we have problems with our vehicle. However, the purchase of a warranty is only possible in the days following an inspection that validates the good condition of your vehicle. When a breakdown occurs, it is unfortunately too late.  

 

More warranty information

Gasoline, diesel, hybrid and electric vehicles are eligible as long as they are less than 10 years old (2012 and older) and have less than 180,000 km. From small city cars to motor homes, we have coverage plans for all vehicles.  

In fact, it is recommended. Our prices are 20% to 30% lower than those of a dealer. It is also possible to contact our consultants to ask your questions. Our mission is to guide you towards the contract that suits you and your vehicle.  

All warranties expire once the maximum term or distance is reached. For example, a 3-year/60,000 km contract expires after 3 years or when the vehicle has been driven 60,000 km since the contract was signed. All warranties expire once the maximum term or distance is reached. For example, a XNUMX-year/XNUMX km contract expires after XNUMX years or when the vehicle has been driven XNUMX km since the contract was signed. 

In general, a new vehicle is guaranteed for a period of 3 years / 60,000km. Some warranties can go up to 5 years / 100,000 km. Once this contract expires, it is recommended to purchase a new warranty.  

You can go to the manufacturer's website and search using your VIN (number visible on your registration card). If necessary, do not hesitate to contact us.  

The main difference between the manufacturer's warranty and private warranties lies in the places available to make a claim and the maintenance. If you plan to do all your maintenance at the dealership of your car's brand, then the manufacturer's warranty is attractive. If you want to keep the freedom to choose where to do your maintenance and be able to make a claim at the garage of your choice, then the private warranty is recommended.

What is an automobile warranty?

A guarantee is not mandatory but recommended. She It covers technical malfunctions and breakdowns.

The most widespread warranty protects the “power train” group. In other words, we are talking about the engine and transmission, which are the most expensive parts.

If you want to avoid all unpleasant surprises and have peace of mind, then you might be interested in a more comprehensive warranty. It is possible to guarantee all the parts of your car, from mechanics to electronics.

However, depending on your car, not all guarantees are suitable. For example, there is little point in guaranteeing the electronics of a car from the 2000s. Also, some cars have known recurring issues, so it is a good idea to cover these parts in particular.

How much does a warranty cost on average?

For a 3-year powertrain warranty, most are priced at $ 510. 

Kiwiz is committed to offering the cheapest guarantees on the market. Indeed, we only take 20% of commissions unlike a rate of 30% to more than 100% among competitors. We challenge you to find a cheaper one elsewhere. If you find it, we offer you 1 kg of kiwis fruit. Deal?

To give you an idea, I just made a quote on 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan: the price is $ 744 for 3 years and $ 1344 for 5 years. 

What will mainly change the price of your warranty is whether you want to include electronics in the warranty. It's up to you to choose the level of guarantee that meets the peace of mind you want. 

When to make a quote?

For a used vehicle, a mechanical inspection must be carried out in a certified garage or via the network of Kiwiz inspectors, and have a favorable opinion from the inspector following the inspection. Your vehicle will then be eligible for the warranty.

Oh, and be careful to check if the used vehicle still has an effective warranty affixed (only applicable between private individuals cars).
In other words, if the vehicle owner's warranty is still in effect, and you buy the vehicle, you can transfer it to your name.
