Will I have to pay a deductible or any other “hidden costs”?

Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the warranty holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Every Consumer Priority Service warranty carries a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with a Consumer Priority Service warranty there are no high upfront costs and we are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.

Does my CPS Warranty cover the removal of my car stereo from the dashboard?

An extended warranty is generally an extension of your original manufacturer’s warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Most Consumer Priority Service warranties lengthen your product’s coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to ensure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
