The Truth About Car Warranties

 

When people consider buying a vehicle, they often grapple over whether to buy a new or used one to fit their needs. Often times, they try to weigh the benefits of paying more for a brand new car, van, SUV or truck over a used one, with one of those highlighted benefits being the safety net of a warranty accompanying that purchase. But If you’re one of the 71% of Americans polled who are considering buying a used car over new, you might be asking yourself if you truly have to sacrifice a warranty in order to save money?

Many people are completely surprised to find out that it’s possible to save thousands by buying a quality used vehicle from Broadmoor Motors that also comes backed by a FREE 30 Day/3000 Mile powertrain warranty. In addition to our standard 30 Day Warranty that’s offered on nearly all of our vehicles at our Caledonia, Hastings and Wayland locations, we offer our customers the ability to purchase an Extended Protection Plan, which offer varying levels of coverage to meet both their needs and their budget.

Before we talk about what makes Broadmoor Motor’s warranty different than other dealerships, it’s important to understand what are extended service plans. Extended Service plans are essentially insurance plans that safeguard against possible unexpected and expensive repairs that might arise in the future. They cover certain repairs which are agreed upon in the plan for a specific period of time or mileage once the vehicle and extended plan are purchased, and they can offer the buyer peace of mind that they won’t be out thousands of dollars in the future should problems arise.

 

Unlike many Extended Service plans which are handled by outside parties, our Broadmoor Motors options are all locally administered so you won’t ever have to deal with needing to call a strange 1-800 number only to be told you’ll have to take your vehicle to some remote dealership you have no relationship with. Our customers need only to contact us and then repairs are handled by us. Our service products have been built with the primary focus of our customer’s needs in mind and are not an attempt to just try to sell them something that is completely unnecessary. Unlike an outside party, we feel like we are familiar with the history of our vehicles and our customer, making us far more capable of providing the right coverage to fit them individually.

A common misperception is that a hassle-free claim is not possible with an extended warranty but at Broadmoor Motors, it’s our goal to provide it for our customers! We offer our customers a complimentary car rental during the entire repair of the vehicle so they can still live their lives with a minimal amount of inconvenience while the claim is being handled. We also provide complimentary towing to our dealership so we can get to work resolving any problem. In addition, our warranties are transferable which means you have an added plus for anyone buying the vehicle from you privately in the future. PLUS, our warranties are backed by a locally owned and operated company who has built a trusted reputation while being in the automotive business for over 60 years in the Grand Rapids area!!
