Yes, Allstate offers a type of extended warranty. The Allstate extended warranty program is called Extended Vehicle Care, and it covers the cost of repairing the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, and steering, among other things. The cost of Allstate Extended Vehicle Care varies depending on the vehicle, but it averages about $25-$60 per month.
In general, extended warranties are meant to keep drivers from paying out of pocket for sudden repairs, since mechanical problems are not covered by other types of auto insurance.
Allstate Extended Warranties Cover:
- Drive Axle
- Fuel System
- Engine Cooling
- A/C & Heating
- Convenience Tech
- Safety Tech
- Tire & Wheel (optional)
- Windshield and Dent Repair (optional)
- Roadside Assistance
- Alternate Transportation
- Trip Interruption
Coverage details can vary depending on which Allstate plan you choose. Additionally, since Extended Vehicle Care is designed to supplement the original manufacturer’s warranty, cars must meet certain requirements to qualify.
Extended Vehicle Care Eligibility Requirements
- Up to 7 years and 100,000 miles
- Must have an Allstate car insurance policy or purchase the coverage through a select dealership
Coverage and eligibility details can vary by state. It’s also worth noting that Extended Vehicle Care is technically a vehicle service plan, which provides the same coverage as an extended warranty. However, vehicle service plans are offered by car insurance companies, whereas extended warranties are generally sold by dealerships or third-party companies.
