Car.co.uk car warranty
To put it simply, our car warranty will cover the bill whenever any electrical or mechanical part on your car fails (that’s a lot of parts). Knowing that we’ve got your back will make any breakdown or repair stress-free. We pride ourselves on providing a bespoke premium warranty, so that no matter which level of cover you choose, you know you’ll be receiving a first-class service. All of your repairs will be done by approved repairers, main dealers and local garages, so you know your car is in safe hands.
If your car stops working and requires an immediate repair or replacement part, we’ve got your back. If a part isn’t quite working as it should after 30 days or travelling 1,000 miles after you took out your policy (and up to 12 years old or 120,000 miles) and is likely to break down before your policy expires, we’ve got you covered with that too.
Levels of cover
To ensure that we can offer a range of policies to suit all needs, we offer three levels of cover. We provide warranties for vehicles that range from four to 12 years old and 40,000 miles to 120,000 on the clock. Each level of cover will provide protection up to the retail value of your car at the time you took the policy out and there is no limit on how many repairs you can claim for.
When choosing your policy, you’ll find that we will cover more parts than most car warranty providers. We never want to leave you unprotected, so we provide cover for all mechanical and electrical parts from your traction control and ABS to power steering & turbochargers. On top of that, we’re partnered with Autoguard; an industry-leading provider. So no matter which level you choose, you’re picking a warranty you can trust.
Breaking down, especially away from home can be a stressful experience. But with our car warranty, it doesn’t have to be. With roadside assistance and vehicle recovery of up to £250 per claim for a maximum of three years, your car will be taken care of no problem. But we’re not going to leave you stranded, so we also offer:
- 24-hour car hire up to £100.
- The cost of bed and breakfast up to £280.
- Onward travel to your destination or home.
- Unlimited protection anywhere in Europe.
Sometimes your car may require diagnostic tests to reveal any problems with the car, such as the engine or brakes, or dismantling work. If this is assessed to be essential for the repair of your car, then your warranty with us will cover it.
Cover for consequential failure
When a part fails, it often doesn’t end there, it can also affect other parts of your car meaning further repairs will need to be done. This is called consequential failure. Many car warranty policies don’t provide cover for this, but we don’t think that’s fair. If you take a policy out with us, we will provide protection for the consequential failure of parts too.
Parts replaced in pairs
For certain parts, for example, brake drums, brake discs, shock absorbers and coil road springs, it is best engineering practice to replace them in pairs even if only one has failed. Since we provide a high level of protection, then we will cover the cost of both parts that are being replaced so you’re never out of pocket.
What may affect your policy?
We do our very best to provide warranties for all vehicles. And although we cover more parts than any other car warranty provider, there are a few exceptions. Take a look at which circumstances we may not be able to offer you cover for.
