What is a warranty and why do I need one?
We would all like to think that we live in a perfect world and that our cars will never let us down but unfortunately the reality is sometimes a little different. No matter how well you maintain your vehicle, components can still fail resulting in costly repair bills.
AA Warranty Mechanical Breakdown Insurance has been designed to help protect you against the cost of such repairs.
Should a covered component suffer unforeseen mechanical failure, we could help to cover the cost of repairs. We even cover wear and tear on
Below is an illustration detailing the average cost of repairs (including parts and labour, with VAT shown) to some of the more common component failures from the AA Warranty Claims Database during 2012.

What to ask your salesperson?
Ask your sales person if the vehicle you want to buy has any remaining manufacturer’s warranty remaining. If so, your AA Warranty cover can be deferred until your manufacturer’s warranty has expired ensuring continuous protection. If not, ask if the vehicle is eligible for immediate AA Warranty cover.
Your salesperson will be able to explain the cover in more detail and help you decide the best level of cover to suit your vehicle.
