CARCHEX offers vehicle protection plans that reduce costs of mechanical breakdown repairs. CARCHEX offers several levels of coverage, which makes it easy for car owners to find a warranty that meets their coverage needs. By offering good warranty options, CARCHEX helps its clients keep new and used vehicles in good running condition.
When a car manufacturer warranty expires, the owner is responsible for the costs of subsequent auto repairs. Having a vehicle protection plan can save car owners from expensive repair costs and provide peace of mind. CARCHEX plans offer different levels of warranty cover, which is great for clients looking for a protection plan that offers good repair coverage and is affordable. Interested car owners should reach out to a CARCHEX representative to understand more about how much you'll need to pay for a service contract.
Founded in 1999, CARCHEX has served automotive consumers for close to 20 years. By partnering with other warranty companies that administer extended service contracts, CARCHEX can offer payment plans on extended car warranties that fit a wide range of consumer budgets at a competitive price.
CARCHEX offers five kinds of extended warranty coverage options through warranty administrators like American Auto Shield and Royal Administration Services. Each type of warranty plan offers a different level of protection. CARCHEX's extended car protection plans are:
Titanium coverage plans are the most comprehensive because they offer bumper-to-bumper coverage. These plans offer similar coverage to a factory warranty when the factory warranty has expired. CARCHEX offers five Titanium extended vehicle warranty plans.
CARCHEX offers three Platinum coverage plans. These plans offer the second highest level of coverage. These plans are not bumper to bumper. However, they do cover each major vehicle system and more.
CARCHEX’s Gold coverage plans are ideal for cars with more than 60,000 miles. These plans offer coverage for major vehicle systems. CARCHEX offers three plans at this level.
Silver coverage options offer basic coverage for a car’s major systems. CARCHEX offers three vehicle warranty plans at this level.
The Bronze plans focus on coverage for common engine and transmission repairs. CARCHEX has two extended car warranty plans at this level.
For more details information about specific CARCHEX extended warranty plans, potential clients can view sample vehicle service contracts on the company website.
The range of plans and high level of transparency means that potential CARCHEX clients can research their options thoroughly to find a service contract that meets their budget and coverage needs.
Quotes are easily obtained from CARCHEX and vary depending upon year, make, model, and mileage of the vehicle. The company offers its customers interest-free financing for up to 24 months with no down payment required and also accepts all major credit cards. Per industry norm, each protection plan usually includes a deductible.
Working with a customer service representative, potential clients can receive answers to their questions regarding cost.
Unlike some car warranty companies, CARCHEX is transparent about the length of coverage that is available for each service plan. Most of the vehicle service agreements sold through CARCHEX can be purchased for a maximum of seven years.
There are also shorter terms of coverage available. Not all plans are renewable, so CARCHEX customer service representatives advise potential clients to purchase the term with the longest length.
The flexibility in contract length is advantageous for a customer because it makes it easy to find an extended vehicle protection plan that fits their needs.
Each CARCHEX warranty covers the engine, transmission, drive axles and other parts of a vehicle’s powertrain. The extent of coverage for these components varies by vehicle service contract and company.
Founded in 1999, CARCHEX has served automobile customers for nearly 20 years and has earned and maintained an A+ rating and accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.
CARCHEX offers a variety of different extended vehicle protection plans to fit each consumer’s specific driving habits, needs, and budget. All of the available car warranty plans featured include:
Car rental benefits offer a refund, typically up to a certain amount, for rental car expenses resulting from a covered repair. Similarly, trip interruption assistance is a refund of a certain amount (specified in the extended warranty) for lodging if a trip is interrupted for covered repairs.
Car owners with a CARCHEX vehicle service agreement can also choose any licensed repair shop, which means that clients can avoid the high cost of dealership repairs and choose a mechanic and repair facility they trust. Additionally, consumers have the option to obtain the following car warranty services:
These additional features enhance the value of CARCHEX extended warranties because what the warranty covers can be adjusted to client needs.
CARCHEX protection plans do not cover vehicles that have frame or suspension modifications such as lift kits, oversized/undersized tires or wheels, trailer hitches, or any other modification to the vehicle’s system that were not factory installed.
While other extended warranty providers also have this limitation, car owners should be aware of this limitation, especially if they are considering making modifications to their car.
CARCHEX policies state that protection plans do not cover basic car maintenance procedures or basic car repairs, like oil changes, wiper blades, tires, spark plugs, etc.
This limitation is fairly standard among warranty providers. It is something that prospective clients should be aware of.
