When your car was new it will have been protected by a warranty supplied by the manufacturer. Typically this will cover you for 3 years or 60,000 miles after the date of manufacture against defects that may cause your car to malfunction. The manufacturer will then replace or repair the vehicle at no cost to you. After the manufacturer’s warranty expires you can choose to extend the warranty cover on your vehicle with an extended car warranty. The Warrantywise extended car warranty is designed to offer similar protection to that which your manufacturer supplied when your car was new. In effect you are extending your protection against mechanical or electrical breakdown and protecting your bank balance if your car goes wrong.
