Do you need a Motor Warranty for a brand new car?

You’ve just bought a brand new car, but do you need a Motor Warranty? Read on as Bidvest Insurance explains.

What is a Manufacturer’s Warranty?

When you buy a brand new car, it includes an original Manufacturer’s Warranty. The Manufacturer’s Warranty covers the cost of repair or replacement for defective parts. Defective parts are parts that have failed from a defect in material or workmanship. The Manufacturer’s Warranty is usually limited to between 3 and 5 years. Once the Manufacturer’s Warranty falls away, you will need to buy your own Motor Warranty.

It’s important to check the conditions of the Warranty that is included with  your new car. Coverage can vary between manufacturers and models. A Manufacturer’s Warranty is often limited to only certain parts.

What is a Motor Warranty?

A Motor Warranty covers you should you suffer a mechanical or electrical breakdown. A Motor Warranty is separate from a Manufacturer’s Warranty. A Motor Warranty provides cover for various components of your car. A Motor Warranty can give you extra coverage on top of a Manufacturer’s Warranty. A Motor Warranty gives you a range of extra perks, including roadside assistance and car hire benefits.

You could suffer a mechanical or electrical breakdown at any time. That’s why you need a Motor Warranty.
