Do Extended Warranties Cover Hybrid Batteries?
By Adrian Castillo
What’s better than having a warranty on your hybrid vehicle? Having an extended warranty on your hybrid vehicle! There are plenty of advantages that come with driving a hybrid and you surely don’t want to say goodbye to those any time soon, so it’s nice to have longstanding coverage for anything that goes wrong with your car. But what are you covered for? Do extended warranties cover hybrid batteries? Well, the answer is a bit complicated.
Standard warranties for the typical hybrid vehicle cover the battery for eight years or 100,000 miles. The bad news is, your extended warranty most likely doesn’t cover your hybrid battery. Why? Because the battery is one part of your vehicle that is expected to wear out over time and eventually be replaced. So, most extended warranties exclude those types of wear-and-tear parts. But the good news is, it’s very possible that the manufacturer of your car covers the battery with its own warranty rather than the vehicle’s warranty. In that case, you can enjoy coverage if anything goes wrong and you need a replacement.
