Norcross, GA – EasyCare®, the leading independent provider of automotive ownership benefits, was featured in an article on vehicle service contracts in the April 2013 issue of Car and Driver magazine.
The article’s author, Steve Cole Smith, praised EasyCare. After warning that buying an aftermarket extended warranty can be tricky, he cited EasyCare as an example of a trustworthy benefits provider. Smith wrote:
“To avoid a scam, look for a company that has been in business for a long time. EasyCare, for instance, has been around since 1984. It was formerly purchased and owned by Ford, but the company’s employees and equity partners bought it back in 2007. The company sells its contracts outright, or through more than 2000 dealers, and while it recommends that you use the selling dealer for service, any licensed repair facility is acceptable. There are four different levels of coverage, and price varies by the level, the vehicle, and its mileage. The costs, however, are often negotiable.”
“Our goal at EasyCare is to deliver leading edge benefits combined with world class service to the dealers and consumers we serve,” said Larry Dorfman, Chairman/CEO of EasyCare. “We truly believe that every driver deserves to enjoy buying and owning their vehicle. EasyCare benefits can play an important role in making that a reality, while also providing automotive dealers with the benefits their customers need and want.”
Dorfman added, “Our adherence to a high standard of ethics and dedication to always doing the right thing for our customers and our partners is a part of how we deliver more. It is gratifying to be singled out by Car and Driver for these qualities.”
EasyCare plans cover the cost to repair or replace covered parts that fail after the manufacturers’ warranty expires. All plans come with 24/7 roadside assistance, rental car reimbursement, and towing reimbursement.
