If you’ve been considering investing in an extended car warranty, you probably have lots of questions. Unfortunately, there have been shady companies/practices in the auto warranty space, and stories of bad actors have received lots of media attention.

Acknowledging problems is good because it means the industry can improve. That’s definitely happened for extended car warranties, and here at Circle Auto Protect, we’re proud to be part of the movement of trustworthy vehicle service policy providers 

We’ve even received a rating of  “Excellent” on Trustpilot, a leading customer review platform that’s open to everyone to share their experiences, good or bad.

We want to shed some light on how extended car warranty claims work so that you can be confident in making a decision that can literally (and legitimately!) save you thousands of dollars on otherwise costly auto repairs:

1.    How an Extended Car Warranty Works

Many people wonder exactly how an extended car warranty works. Admittedly, this can be tricky, because what we offer at Circle Auto Protect is not, technically speaking, a warranty.

Technically, Circle Auto Protect is a provider of Vehicle Service Policies (VSP), which are often referred to as warranties, even though they’re different from manufacturer’s car warranties. A VSP, though, does provide auto repair coverage after the manufacturer’s warranty expires.  

How it works: once you sign up for one of our coverage plans, Circle Auto Protect will be there every step of the way when your car breaks down and needs repairs. We provide 24/7 roadside assistance and will bring your car to any local ASE-certified repairs shop of your choice.

We’re known for offering the fastest possible turnaround time, it’s part of our commitment to getting you back on the road ASAP. We even provide rental car reimbursement if you need it!

2.    How Your Auto Repairs Get Paid

An extended car warranty (or vehicle service policy) is essentially like insurance, not for car accidents, but for car repairs. You pay a deductible, and, based on the coverage plan you’ve chosen, we cover the repair expenses.

At Circle Auto Protect, we take pride in providing the best possible coverage at payment terms our customers can afford. We offer flexible plan options that can be customized to fit your individualized needs.

With one of our coverage plans in place, you won’t have to worry about paying thousands of dollars out of pocket when your engine breaks down or your brake system fails. You can get the repairs you need right away and only spend a fraction of the cost overall.

3.    Why It’s Rare for an Extended Car Warranty Claim to Be Denied

Some of the horror stories in the extended car warranty space involve customers who pay for coverage, but then have their claims denied.

Here at Circle Auto Protect, that is rarely the case, because we make sure to communicate clearly exactly what you can expect from each and any of our coverage policies. 

Our experienced staff is always eager and happy to share our knowledge with you, and will work with you and your budget to offer you the best coverage options possible!
