Car Warranty Guide

The lowdown on car warranty deals

The grimace on the face of the mechanic - the one when he's about to break the news to you about how much it's going to cost to get you back on the road - that's when you know it's not going to be cheap. Unfortunately this is one of those stereotypes that are given plenty of opportunities to reinforce themselves.

If you rely on your vehicle for work or for your family, or if you live remotely, you might have no option but to pay up. And it could be thousands.

To get the right policy for you and your vehicle, there are a few things you need to bear in mind when you look to compare.

Firstly, price is clearly going to be a major driving force before behind your decision, but the cheapest is by no means necessarily best. You have to decide what you want cover for - all deals will cover 'wear and tear' and engine malfunctions, but suspension and brakes won't necessarily be included on the cheapest deals.

Next up, check how much you can claim for if you do need to get reimbursed for repairs. Some policies will cover you up to the maximum value of your vehicle; some will set a standard limit - whether that's above or below what your car is worth.

Thirdly, you'll need to check how many miles you've got on the clock. Some warranties won't cover you if your car's been round the block too many times. Don't worry though, unless you've been to the moon and back you should be able to find a deal, but it will cost you more. The same applies to the age of your vehicle too.

Like with other insurance products, you'll usually have to pay a small amount as an excess payment when you make a claim. The level will differ from product to product - make sure you include it in your comparison.

Before you settle on a deal, check what the process will be for getting you back on the road: where will the car be taken to be fixed? Will you have to pay the transportation costs for getting the car to the garage? Does the company make any guarantees on time? Will you be supplied with a temporary replacement vehicle while yours is out of action?

Don't forget about breakdown cover too, in case your car decides to leave you stranded on the hard shoulder. Click here to see the latest deals for roadside recovery deals.
