Why buy it now? I'm still covered by the manufacturer.
Your service agreement is less expensive the earlier you purchase it. As the vehicle ages and accrues mileage, the price for protection rises. Prices may also rise due to increasing labor and parts prices. Why not lock into today's low prices and protect yourself from tomorrow's rising repair rates?

What if my repair facility won't take your plan?
It is rare that a repair facility will not accept our plans as we pay them immediately and utilize industry standard manuals to determine pricing. When they find out they do not have to bill us, they are eager to accept the business we refer to them. In addition, they also want your routine maintenance business so it is rare that they will turn down the rest of your business. We would be happy to call your repair facility to establish a relationship before you buy. We also maintain a database of thousands of repair facilities that have already accepted our plan; yours may already be there. In the rare event a repair facility will not accept our direct credit card payment, we will reimburse you promptly for the authorized amount.

If your insurance company has deemed your vehicle a total loss as the result of an accident, Route 66 will refund the entire premium back to you or the financial institution on your behalf if you have purchased the Total Loss Refund option.
Is my warranty transferable?
Absolutely, you can transfer the warranty to another private purchaser of your vehicle. Vehicles with extended warranties typically offer much higher resale values because the buyer knows they are not going to get hit with huge repair costs.
