If you hate the loose price structure that normally comes with buying a car, you will like the no-haggle, transparent pricing available with CarSaver. You can even shop sales prices by monthly payment, lease, or cash prices.
When you get a qualified car from a CarSaver Certified Dealer, it comes with a lifetime warranty, with unlimited time and miles, at no cost to you. This covers the engine, transmission, and drive train, for as long as you own the vehicle. There is no deductible. Labor is covered at 100 percent.
To be eligible for the CarSaver Lifetime Warranty, there are a few qualifications:
Please note that it doesn’t include roadside assistance or a replacement rental vehicle, unless you upgrade to a CarSaver Protection Plus+ agreement and the liability limit is the NADA average retail value when you do the claim.
You can even use your purchased car as a ridesharing driver without voiding the warranty.
Car buyers can download a mobile app that goes along with the powertrain warranty.
Shoppers can call or request a callback from an auto advisor through the CarSaver website if they have any questions while shopping for a car. This is a great customer service resource for people with questions about the car buying process, trade-in values, insurance quotes, leasing, and financing. You can get some help with car buying questions before even visiting local dealers.
Once car shoppers select a vehicle they are interested in buying, they are connected with the dealership’s express sales manager at the local dealership. This is a specialized salesperson who can even help with financing pre-approval and trade-in appraisal in advance. Shoppers can get in and out of the dealership quickly.
The CarSaver lifetime warranty is not available to consumers in the state of Illinois. Additionally, some vehicle models may be excluded per dealer.
To stay within the terms of the lifetime powertrain warranty, you can’t do your own repairs or oil changes to save money. It voids the warranty.
On the CarSaver site, users should know that there are both Standard Listings and Recommended Listings.
Standard Listings — not offering the special warranties because they aren’t from certified dealers.
Recommended Listings — from certified dealers, meaning they come with a lifetime warranty
It is pretty clear when browsing through the company’s website which cars will come with the warranty and which are just dealer listings. Be sure that you understand which you are looking at.
