Re: Maxcare Service Contract?

Re: Looking for recomendations for Extended Warranties

Anyone know if the max care warranty rental benefit applies for recall repairs? I have a recall that I need to get addressed and would like to be able to rent a vehicle if it takes time to do.

Re: Looking for recomendations for Extended Warranties

It bears repeating, lest it get lost in the discussion, that the unlimited/unlimited plans are NOT transferable unless you purchase in NC or FL. Caveat emptor and all that. :)

Re: Looking for recomendations for Extended Warranties

Oh, and one other thing: because I purchased in NC, the lifetime max warranty is transferable to another owner. It's one of the few times living in NC has provided me with an actual benefit!
