Extended Warranty

What is an extended warranty?

An extended warranty takes over when your manufacturer’s warranty expires and covers largely the same components. It limits your exposure to the costs of unexpected repairs, giving you peace of mind for years beyond the standard warranty for your vehicle.

Extended Warranty

Don’t foot the bill for failure

Your new car could be covered by its manufacturer’s warranty for as little as three years or 100,000km. After that, you’ll be left to pick up the tab for any major failure of critical components. An extended warranty takes the burden of major repairs off your shoulders, protecting your financial security for years to come.

Common questions about Extended Warranty

To qualify for an extended warranty, you must be:

  • Over 21 years old
  • Purchasing a car for personal use.

In addition, your car must be:

  • Registered in Australia
  • Less than 15 years old
  • Have done less than 250,000km.

The cost of your extended warranty will depend on your level of coverage, the length of the extended warranty, and the type of motor vehicle you are covering.

Benefits under an extended warranty are limited to the market value of the vehicle.

To make sure you remain covered by your extended warranty, you must not:

  • Use your car for business purposes, including UberEats, etc.
  • Use or test your car for motorsports
  • Modify your car in a way that effects the covered components.

You also need to stop driving your car immediately if you suspect that it has a fault.

Depending on the kind of extended warranty you purchase, you may be required to have your vehicle serviced every 10,000km or 6 months, whichever comes first. You will also need to submit evidence of each service to the insurer.

You are welcome to select your own (licensed) mechanic to perform regular servicing and maintenance for your vehicle. However, any repairs covered by your extended warranty will need to be conducted by a mechanic approved by the insurer.

You can cancel your extended warranty for any reason within 30 days from your application date. Any premiums you have paid will be fully refunded.
