When shopping for a car or any other major purchase, it's important to make sure you get what you're paying for. There are lots of commercial companies out there that offer what's called an extended warranty plan, which is usually touted as an added-value addition to your purchase. However, these companies often take advantage of consumers when it comes to their contracts and warranty policies. You see, these companies want to be in business, so they need to provide a certain amount of coverage for their products. However, when you get into the details of their contracts and policies, you'll quickly find the terms that are most favorable to them. That's because, generally speaking, these warranties are riddled with loopholes that leave consumers on the hook for a lot of money.

The problem is that these companies use marketing tactics to deceive consumers into believing they're getting more than what they pay for. Check out below how some of these companies play every consumer for a fool:
1. You won't have any coverage if your car experiences damage due to lack of wear and tear or accident-related damage 2. You won't have any coverage if you don't pay your bill on time, or respond to their calls. 3. In the event the car is damaged beyond repair now, they will require you to fork over a large amount of money to fix it before they'll give you any assistance. 4. You won't have any coverage in the event of a liability accident if the car was already damaged prior 5. You won't have any coverage if your vehicle is stolen 6. In some cases, these companies will even take back claims after you've paid for repairs already 7 . 8 .

"You are not only going to get sued, you're going to be sued several times by different law firms who are all claiming that their clients were injured by the same product. The problem is, you won't know which of them is right and which is wrong. You also won't know who's responsible for exposing the client to the danger in the first place. All you'll have is a lot of lawyers making a lot of money without doing any actual work."
