YAA Extended Warranty
KIMBERLY “THE FINANCE GURU”
Avoid the Markup
The inventory of new and used vehicles is at a historic low nationwide, so protecting what you have is more important than ever before. An extended warranty, also known as vehicle service contracts (VSCs), saves you from paying for expensive repairs and keeps your vehicle safe and on the road.
Extended Warranties 101
Watch and learn before you sign.
Why should I purchase YAA’s Warranty Coverage?
Easy! You shouldn’t pay more for the same exact coverage.
Here’s the scoop: Extended warranties from dealerships are administered by a third party. Most dealerships will give their plans a brand name to make you feel more confident. Honda does it; Subaru, Toyota, Ford, and others do this, too. Dealerships can then mark up the price for their extended warranties, in some cases by thousands of dollars.
We don’t believe in that. Instead, we apply a flat $500 markup to every warranty we offer. We can do this by cutting out the middle-person … the insurance brokers.
Read the contract HERE.
Where can I use my extended warranty coverage?
You can take your vehicle to any dealership, AAA or ASE certified mechanic. Simply search online for “ASE Certified mechanics near me.”
Is YAA's extended warranty the same as the dealership’s?
It’s identical. The only difference is price, and ours is significantly lower. More details below…
Isn’t it better to buy a manufacturer’s extended warranty?
No. There’s no difference! Their extended warranties and ours offer identical mechanical coverage.
Here’s the scoop: Extended warranties from a manufacturer are administered by a third party. Some manufacturers will give their plans a brand name to make you feel more confident.
Protect yourself before you protect your vehicle. Check the coverage and price before making your final decision.
Should I buy an extended warranty before my three-year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty is up?
A warranty’s price and choice of term is based on the vehicle’s age and mileage. It’s most affordable for new vehicles and offers the widest selection of terms. Your coverage will overlap, but if you wait until your bumper-to-bumper warranty matures or ends, the prices go up and choices of term shrink. This explains why they’re cancellable. So, if you’re thinking about purchasing a warranty, act fast to get the best price and term.
Coverage and Repairs
MARIO “THE RESEARCHER”
Know before you buy
I recommend keeping your vehicle’s maintenance records, especially if you have it done outside of the dealership where you purchased it.
What's not covered under my extended warranty?
- Normal wear and tear
- Tires and wheels
- The interior
- Glass, rubber stripping, squeaks, and wind noises are not covered; see Section #8 on your contract (“What is Not Covered”)
Is my LCD screen covered?
It may be covered, depending on the issue. If the screen was punctured or scratched, like when it’s been tampered with or accidentally damaged, it’s not covered.
But if your screen isn’t functioning properly, don’t worry. The mechanic will take your dash apart to see if you need a new LCD screen. If you do, it’s covered along with all computers and electronics. So, if other electronics stop working, like your radio, the repair is covered. But if it’s damaged, such as when a radio knob is accidentally snapped off, it isn’t.
Should I call in to AUL each time I need repair? What do I do if my vehicle needs a repair? What can I expect?
Never. Your service advisor will do that for you. When your vehicle isn’t working properly, go to a certified service center and bring your policy with you so they can call in the claim.
Below is our recommendation on the steps you should take to make a claim:
- First, go to a dealership, or AAA or ASE certified service center
- Bring your policy with you to show to the service advisor
- To determine the issue(s), a diagnostic assessment will be made and the info will be given to you and AUL
- If the repair is covered, you’ll only pay the deductible
- Learn more about the process on YouTube
Do I pay first and then get reimbursed?
No. Like most dealership administrators, AUL makes a direct payment to the repair facility for you.
Do I pay a deductible for every repair?
No. There’s a standard $100 deductible paid per repair order (RO). So, if there are four repairs on your RO, you pay one deductible.
Should I get my vehicle inspected if I purchase an extended warranty from you? If so, why?
You only need to provide us with a copy of your pre-purchase inspection report (PPI) if your vehicle is outside of its original factory bumper-to-bumper warranty. You can take your vehicle locally or use a national inspection service.
YAA makes this easy! We have partnered with LemonSquad to help our customers obtain a PPI in no time and at no cost! If you decide to move forward with YAA’s coverage, we will deduct their $179 cost from the total cost of your coverage.
NOTE: VSCs don’t cover pre-existing conditions. If the inspection report shows a window isn’t operating, it won’t be covered since it’s a pre-existing condition.

What are you waiting for?
We have the best coverage in the industry. If you’re going to buy an extended warranty, get a free quote from YAA.
Who administers your extended warranty?
Our plans are managed by AUL Corporation, a nationally recognized, award-winning plan administrator with over 30 years of dealership experience and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. AUL is contractually backed by an “A” rated carrier with over $32 billion in assets. After an extensive vetting process, we had the most confidence in AUL.
How does an extended warranty subscription work?
Our subscription works in two ways:
- Pay upfront for the entire cost of your YAA warranty coverage.
- Pay monthly, over 36 months, for the cost of your warranty coverage. (NO Interest!)
How do I subscribe or purchase your extended warranty?
For either option, first create a free YAA account and get a free quote. Then – if you want to – schedule a 15-minute consultation call with us. We’ll walk you through your options, even if you don’t choose our plan. You can schedule the call from your account or by using this link.
Bottom Line: We want you to select the plan that’s best for you. Whether that means through YAA or elsewhere, you should feel confident in knowing that you have the best coverage. This might mean doing your research around other third party options OR walking into the F&I office with your YAA coverage already in hand for them to match. Either way, YAA is here to help get you prepared.
Do you have any surcharges?
Yes, in two cases surcharges may apply:
- A business use surcharge if you use your vehicle to work for Uber, Lyft, delivery services or if your vehicle is in a business name
- A lift surcharge if you have a lift kit that was professionally installed before you purchased the extended warranty
Can I cancel my extended warranty?
If you cancel your extended warranty and paid up front, you’ll receive a prorated refund based on time or miles, whichever is greater.
If you cancel your extended warranty and are paying monthly, you will simply need to give us 30 days notice so we can cancel your contract. No refund will be issued.
If you cancel your VSC within 60 days of purchase and no claims were made, you’ll receive a full refund. A $50 administrative fee will apply.
