How big is the market for Automotive Protection Products?

There are millions of vehicles on the road in our country that do not have automotive protection. A large percentage of these vehicles will not qualify for traditional vehicle service contract coverage, and these vehicle owners deserve the opportunity to purchase protection for their cars or trucks. This is the market that is addressed by the automotive protection product industry.


Need a used auto warranty? We can help but, first, a point of clarification. The correct term for what you want to buy is a "vehicle service contract" -- the industry is moving away from use of the word "warranty" in order to avoid confusing consumers. Firms that offer to sell an "extended warranty" are likely not VPA members and may not be following many of the VPA best practices that are designed to protect consumers.
