Are Automotive Protection Products regulated?

Yes. In many states, automotive protection product providers are required to adhere to the same or similar regulatory guidelines as vehicle service contract providers.


If your task at hand on today's to-do list is "buy extended car warranty," we've got some important news for you. Firms in our industry have moved away from this terminology. Instead, look for a "vehicle service contract" or a reputable automotive protection product. With a vehicle service contract, you are covered when your vehicle experiences a mechanical breakdown or failure that is addressed by the vehicle service contract. You can purchase a contract that suits your needs and your budgetary constraints and then rest easy knowing that you are protected from unexpected vehicle repair expenses.
