Tell me more about CarShield

If you’ve had car problems in the past, you know the headache that comes with any repair. On top of the final cost, you have to deal with all the worries along the way. And you may even be on the hook for your rental car, which adds even more injury to insult.

Starting at only $99 a month, CarShield offers customizable and flexible payment plans with no long-term contracts. CarShield has helped over 1 million customers. It’s America’s No. 1 auto protection company, for good reason.

If you have an extended warranty on your vehicle, you’re probably wondering how CarShield is different. Simply put, it picks up where your warranty drops off or to fill gaps in coverage.

It’s also different from your auto insurance policy. In general, auto insurance covers collision or accidental damage to your vehicle. A CarShield service contract covers the mechanical parts of your car. Your engine, transmission and other vital parts are protected anytime they break down or malfunction.
