If you got an unsolicited call for an auto warranty/ service contract it's very likely a scam / crappy deal.

Before spending $2000 for a warranty/ service contract my preference is to set that money aside and pay for any repairs from that cash.

If I was going to buy a warranty I would do it from a reputable dealer via a very financially sound warranty company. Here's why: Lifetime Warranty Myths - That Lifetime Warranty May Not Be Worth What You Think!

Never in this lifetime or the next would I buy a warranty/service contract from someone soliciting via the phone or direct mail. If for no other reason than I registered my phones on https://www.donotcall.gov/ which means just their calling is a violation of the law. If they can't get that part right, what are the chances anything else goes as promised?

Some light reading and a video...


More than likely, these pitches are from unrelated businesses that want to sell you extended warranties — more accurately known as service contracts — that often sell for hundreds or thousands of dollars. If you respond to a call from a business pitching so-called extended warranties, you’re likely to hear high-pressure sales tactics, as well as demands for personal financial information and a down payment, before you get any details about the service contract. And if you buy a service contract, you may find that the company behind it won’t be in business long enough to fulfill its commitments.

Beware of Auto Warranty Scams

The FCC Consumer Center noticed an increase in complaints and inquiries from consumers who received calls about renewing their automobile warranties. During the calls, which are usually automated or pre-recorded, the consumer is told that the warranty on his or her automobile is about to expire and is instructed to press a number to renew it. The callers often pose as representatives of a car dealer or manufacturer, and may or may not have specific information about the consumer’s particular car and warranty.

Many of these calls may violate FCC Do-Not-Call rules. Many may actually be fraudulent—if you press a certain number or stay on the line, you may be asked to provide several types of personal information, including your credit card number, which can be used to defraud unwary consumers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed suit in federal court against companies suspected of making these calls. The FCC also investigates potential violations of FCC rules, and some states and telephone companies have sued companies that make these types of calls.
