When you’re looking for the perfect Porsche in our inventory, there are so many different car buying options to consider. Finding the perfect sports car or SUV in our inventory is only one facet of the experience on the whole. One question that often comes up is, “should I buy extended warranties?”

The answer relies on your Westlake Village 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/Westlake 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.

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+ years, or want to drive it every day, then an extended warranty is certainly recommended.

Used Vehicles

With used vehicles, it all about reliability. Visit the Rusnak/Westlake Porsche service center and have the vehicle inspected and potential issues estimated. Then 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.

Do I Need an Extended Warranty?

Extended warranties are excellent for drivers who want to enjoy their drives through Agoura Hills and Oxnard in their new Porsche every day. As we mentioned above, extended warranties are an extra precaution in the event an unpredictable maintenance problem arises, giving you superior peace of mind Malibu roads.
