One question that often comes up is, “should I buy extended warranties?” The answer relies on your Los Angeles lifestyle and your plans with your vehicle. Learn all about extended warranties, how they work, and what they cover with our financial experts at Rusnak/Pasadena Porsche.

What is an Extended Warranty?

An extended warranty is a supplementary warranty that can often be purchased when financing a new Porsche or used model. This coverage would be in addition to your factory warranty, and would cover you after it lapses. Plans may vary depending on your desired coverage, duration, and vehicle. In many cases, you can add extras like towing or roadside assistance.  An extended warranty can be looked at as a safety net in the event your major powertrain warranty ends, and a significant repair is needed. The extended warranty helps cover the cost of the repairs, so you can keep enjoying your drives through Arcadia and Alhambra.

Extended Warranties for New & Used Vehicles

Extended warranties can be added to both new and used vehicles, but coverage varies depending on vehicle, condition, and age. Whether you want to add an extended warranty on a new or used car, consider the following differences:

New Vehicles

When it comes to new vehicles and extended warranties, it’s important to consider how long you plan on owning your vehicle, and how often you plan on driving it. If you plan to trade-in the vehicle in less than 10 years, then an extended warranty may not be the right choice. This is especially true if you don’t plan on driving your vehicle every day. If you do plan on keeping the vehicle for 10 or more years or want to drive it daily, then an extended warranty is an options you should heavily consider.

Used Vehicles

Used Porsche models are certainly enticing value propositions, but their repairs do not depreciate alongside the value of the vehicle itself. When you visit the Rusnak/Pasadena Porsche service center, we’ll have the vehicle inspected and potential issues estimated. From there you can decide whether or not you would like to purchase an extended warranty. Like with new vehicles, consider how long you plan on having that used vehicle before deciding.
