Exclusive Benefits of AAA’s Extended Warranty

If you are buying a previously owned vehicle or you plan to keep your new car for a long time, you should consider getting an extended warranty. Today's automobiles are loaded with sophisticated technology and electronics and most warranties supplied by the manufacturer expire long before you're ready to sell your car. AAA offers exclusive extended warranties to members with four different coverage options, each custom designed using one month and 1,000-mile increments to meet your driving habits and budget. Here is a breakdown of each plan:

AAA's best coverage is under the Exclusionary plan. Under this plan, coverage is similar to the original warranty and includes all original mechanical and electrical components, except items listed as excluded. Vehicle maintenance such as lube oil and filter changes, tires, light bulbs, and brake pads are also excluded from this plan.

The Comprehensive plan covers 15 major systems. These include the engine, transmission and transfer case, front and rear wheel drive systems, 4WD/AWD systems, front and rear suspension, steering, brakes and ABS systems. This plan also covers electrical, air conditioning and heating, cooling and fuel systems, turbocharger/supercharger, and audio system.

The Essential Plus plan covers 14 major systems. These include the engine, transmission and transfer case, front and rear wheel drive systems, 4WD/AWD systems, front and rear suspension, steering, brakes, and ABS systems. This plan also covers electrical, air conditioning and heating, cooling and fuel systems, and turbocharger/supercharger. The Essential Plus plan does not cover the audio system.

Intended for older, higher mileage vehicles, the Essential plan covers 10 major systems. These include the engine, transmission and transfer case, front and rear wheel drive systems, 4WD/AWD systems, and electrical. This plan also covers air conditioning and heating, cooling and fuel systems, and turbocharger/supercharger.
