There are always limitations with these rip-off extended warranties. Generally, they trumpet that the warranty is, "bumper-to-bumper"
, misleading the consumer into believing that anything and everything is covered. This is an all out lie!
Any parts that are considered normal wear and tear items, which includes most of the parts on the car such as tires, struts/schocks, wiper blades, spark plugs/wires, bulbs/lights, hoses, belts, filters, coolant/antifreeze, brakes, exhaust system, etc., etc., etc., are not covered under extended warranties as these items are, "Normal wear and tear items", that are expected to eventually need replacing and are not covered
by these rip-off, "Bumper-to-bumper", extended warranties! Generally the only thing these rip-off extended warranties cover are catastrophic engine/transmission failures and just how often does that occur?
Read the fine print before you toss your hard earned money into the toilet!
