MANILA, Philippines — A key to a car’s longevity is maintaining it religiously. But sometimes, even with the utmost attention and care, a car still breaks down due to mechanical problems.

Here is where a car warranty comes in. Most carmakers offer warranty for the first three years since purchase, while extending it in the years to come is an option. It covers repair costs for minor and major mechanical breakdowns.

A car part that could use a better warranty is the engine, which powers and runs the car. Here are reasons why an assurance is worth securing:

1. It gives peace of mind.

There’s no need to worry when your car's engine experiences faults. Even if a check-up at the mechanic ends up with a replacement of parts, be assured that a warranty already covers what could have been a significant expense. This also gives you freedom to have it serviced at your warrantor’s shop immediately.

2. It keeps the car in tiptop shape.

Fortunately, warranties from carmakers, independent dealers and mechanic shops may now cover comprehensive mechanic faults not just on the engine but also on suspension, transmission and airconditioning, among others. Just make sure to check the list of covered repairs and services. 

3. It saves you money.

A complete engine overhaul may cost up to P20,000 while prices or parts like pistons, bearings and cylinders range from P1,000 to P8,000. With a warranty, the burden of paying for these on top of regular maintenance costs is lifted.

4. It teaches about responsibility.

Your car is your responsibility and having a warranty does not take this away. It only means that you should still take care of the engine through tests and oil change, as well as regularmaintenance checks.

5. It lets you make a choice.

If you are confident that you can save up for car repairs regularly, then don’t extend your warranty. But if you prefer to pay for warranty now so your future savings will stay intact, then do so. Weigh down which option best suits you.
