OCEAN, N.J., Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Palmer Automotive Service wants to be sure that your used car has as much warranty protection as your new car. Whether you are purchasing a second car for your family or one for a child headed to college, you don't want to face expensive auto repairs.
"If you are buying a vehicle for a young person or teenager, you want to be sure they are safe when they are on the road," said Thomas Scott, a Palmer Administration employee. "If there is a breakdown, you don't want them sitting on the side of a deserted road with no way to get the vehicle to a safe place where it can be repaired. Extended service contracts provide benefits like towing, roadside repairs and even overnight stay compensation." Mr. Scott said these benefits alone can provide parents with peace of mind that their child will not be stranded on a dark road if their car breaks down.
There is no question that some used car models are more reliable than others, but even those with the best repair history can break down at inopportune times. According to Consumer Repairs, battery malfunctions cause the most breakdowns in older cars, followed by fuel injector systems, ignition systems as well as wheels and tires. Many extended warranty plans will send someone to change a tire, jump start a battery or add gas if the vehicle has run out. Even though these breakdowns are not actually covered by most service plans, roadside repairs are covered as a safety feature.
If your used car will be used by a young person, you also don't want it to be out of service for too long. Many extended service plans offer rental cars if the repair will take more than a day or so, allowing your child to get back and forth to school, work or other events they must attend.
Automobile service plans are almost a necessity if a teen or young person will be the primary driver. They can provide peace of mind to parents and help keep children safe when they are driving an older car that could develop mechanical problems.
