More than 1 million customers trust CarShield. Here’s what some have to say.

“I have a Ford truck that I love, with over 200K mileage, and plan to drive for upwards of half a million miles if it lasts that long. I first came across CarShield when looking for extended warranties. I was a little skeptical at first, but when I crunched the numbers, I realized that this service was worth it for me.

Sure enough, within a year I had a major transmission problem, and not only was my repair covered, but my tow and rental car were taken care of as well. Without CarShield I would have had to wipe out my savings, or worse yet, give up my truck. I can’t recommend this service enough!” – Dave G.

Ava D. switched to CarShield after her manufacturer’s warranty expired and used it to fix her transmission. “I’m so glad I got CarShield or else I would have been out of thousands of dollars! The process to submit was claim was fast easy with no hassle at all.”

Crossing your fingers and hoping an expensive repair won’t come your way is a losing gamble. Protect your wallet and get peace of mind with CarShield.
