According to Asia Warranty Services (AWS) Director and Chief Executive Officer Nasser Watar, extended warranties provide Filipino motorists with superior value-for-money service long after the manufacturers’ warranties expire- which is important as Filipinos keep their cars longer than average Europeans and Americans. 

AWS said that as a leading global provider of extended warranty service, it has partnered with leading Philippine vehicle manufacturers and distributors to provide innovative and reliable warranty after the normal coverage expires. The common warranty in the local market is a three-year or 100,000-kilometer deal, which AWS said it will extend to five years and additional mileage, if necessary. 

The company said its one-stop shop concept delivers valuable insurance solutions through an extensive network of manufacturers, dealers, distributors, retailers, leasing and financial institutions, Its automotive extended warranty, for example, features a protection plan that covers all costs related to mechanical, electrical and electronic breakdown after the manufacturers’ warranty expires. It is an exact duplicate of the manufacturers’ warranty AWS said. 

AWS said its extended warranty also includes a 24-hour roadside service that covers towing and assistance.
