Should you get an extended warranty for your car, truck or SUV or a Good Sam Extended Service Plan?
When it comes to vehicle repairs many people do not realize they have more than one coverage option.
While warranty and extended warranty options are offered by most dealerships, you may not have heard of
mechanical breakdown insurance from Good Sam. An Extended Service Plan from Good Sam is an insurance policy,
not a warranty. Let's take a look at some of the key differentiators.
Mechanical Breakdown Insurance
A Good Sam Extended Service Plan offers peace of mind and security without the up-front costs associated with extended auto warranties.
Plus, an Extended Service Plan from Good Sam can help cover costs after your car warranty expires. It's a true insurance product dedicated
to covering parts, labor and repairs and is 100% backed by an A+ rated insurer.
Never Worry Over Major Breakdowns Or Repairs
Whether your car, truck or SUV is new or used, it qualifies for Good Sam Extended Service Plan if it's 15 years old or newer
with less than 100,000 miles. When it's time for necessary repairs, you'll be worry free knowing it'll be fixed immediately,
without waiting to save up for the bill. You can choose the size of your deductible: $100, $250 or $500.
A Smart Investment
Eighty percent of Good Sam Extended Service Plan policyholders file a claim for covered repairs within the first year.
If you're towing a camper or 5th wheel trailer, you know it can put a lot of stress on the drivetrain.
The most common auto repair covered by a Good Sam Extended Service Plan is the transmission,
which can be very expensive. For this reason, mechanical breakdown insurance from Good Sam can be a wise investment,
paying for itself in just one or two claims.
