First off, you have to know something about warranties.  They are kind of like insurance.  You want to make sure that before you buy any auto warranty that you look over the fine print.  If you don’t, you could find that your auto repair that you thought was covered wasn’t.  For the record though, power train components such as your transmission are usually covered under warranty.  Again though, check to be sure.

MYTH: Warranties are rip-offs.  Some are, yes.  Some warranties sound good on paper until you realize that they cover about 20% of your parts in your car, and some won’t cover power train components at all.  If you get one of these warranties, you are in a bit of trouble where repairs come into play.  The key is to look over your paperwork carefully.  Some warranties require you to either pay a deductible, a portion of the repairs, or both.  However, don’t balk at the word deductible.

Warranty Transmission Repairs

A transmission is a complex piece of machinery within your car or truck.  Repairing it takes a lot of effort.  All auto repairs that are from reputable transmission repair shops, like us, are a combination of parts and labor.  That’s where a warranty and a deductible can work in your advantage.  Sometimes the deductible is $100 or less to fix your $2000 repair.  Hmm, a 95% savings?  Sounds like a bargain to us.

Just remember, be sharp.  Look over all of your warranty paperwork when you’re getting a car, and follow the table of scheduled maintenance so you don’t void the warranty.  Then get it into an auto repair shop that takes your warranty.
