Because your mechanic will be on the phone all day trying to get someone to approve the work. And when they do approve it, you will only get about 50% of the cost back. They will claim the part costs much less than it actually does, and the labor will be a lot less that it actually is. This is a very bad company. DO NOT USE THESE GUYS. If you can, get coverage from the factory, like a GM extended... Read more

I take my car in for a "clunk" fix. They found a bad "bushing" (Wikipedia defines a bushing as a type of bearing). I called them this morning for clarification, they still denied coverage based on a technicality. My contract states under the DRIVE AXLE coverage section the "Lubricated internal part, including bearings" are covered. Well they did not stand up and cover this part! Why, because it... Read more

I have been a member since September 2012. According to the salesperson and my agreement, my vehicle is covered bumper to bumper. NOT SO!!!! My transmission failed as I was driving to work. I had pay to have it towed to a local dealership (even though it suppose to be covered via Warranty Direct). Upon arrival, I'm suppose to receive a rental (via Warranty Direct-didn't happen). The...

Like most other complaints here I purchase a 'bumper to bumper' extended warranty. The first and only claim I attempted to make was for the fuel pump in my desile truck. Called customer services and talked to a individual who obviously has been trained in claim denial not customer service an has no knowledge of vehicle parts. I'm not prone no raising my voice but by the time I was done talking... Read more

This place will take your money and not uphold to its Peace of Mind plan. Don't get sucked into their words because when you have an issue with your car they will find a reason why your issue is NOT COVERED. Tom and his pompous attitude was not a help. Made me look like I was wrong. I don't know how these people can work for a company knowing they are taking money from people who think they are... Read more

Powershied Enhanced coverage is not a Bumper to Bumper coverage. It is a coverage tht covers only about 35% of the vehicle when a Mechanical Breakdown has occured. If they determine that the failure is due to normal wear then it will not be covered, the claim will be denied. I wish people who purchase used vehicles with very high miles would stop thinking that the warranty will cover the engine... Read more
