I know firsthand that this company stands behind their product. A lot has to do with the dealership that the Zurich contract was purchased through. I used their service to fix my tire, where I hit a pothole, and the rim bent. Not only did they tow my car, they replaced both rim and tire.Read Full Review
Filing a claim was pretty easy. I got a rental car the same day my car got taken care of. It was pretty crazy because it happened on the week of Thanksgiving, but they paid everything and I was back on the road coming 1,500 miles back. I was shocked that they got done as quick as it did.Read Full Review
Zurich vehicle service contract cost
Costs for an extended auto warranty are not available on Zurich’s website. The best way to get an accurate price is to speak to a Zurich representative at a dealership that sells Zurich extended auto warranties. They will be able to talk to you about what you need covered, what benefits you would like and what fits your budget. Prices vary by dealership location and the make, model, year and mileage of the vehicle.
With Zurich, you will only have to pay a small deductible for repairs. Extended auto warranty deductibles can vary, but a typical deductible is $100.

Zurich Vehicle Service Contract coverage
Repairs can be made at any ASE-certified dealership or the dealership where you originally purchased your Zurich extended auto warranty. Make sure to have the repair facility verify their coverage. Next, call Zurich for a repair authorization number. Once the repair has been done, just submit a repair order to Zurich. You’ll pay the deductible, and Zurich will pay the rest directly to the repair facility.
All plans include emergency roadside assistance, rental car reimbursement and trip interruption coverage. Rental Plus offers rental coverage for two days. Powertrain, Standard, Preferred and Comprehensive have six days of rental coverage. The rental coverage reimbursement is $30 a day. Trip interruption reimbursement is $100 a day for three days. Customers can qualify for trip interruption reimbursement if they have a breakdown more than 100 miles from home.
Plans are transferrable, meaning the plan can move to a new person if the vehicle is sold. This is a great way to add additional value to a vehicle when you’re trying to sell it.

I am really happy with the service from Zurich and I have had a wonderful experience with them. I got a service contract because I have a used vehicle. They got the best rate and they were not expensive. The coverage I got for my vehicle repairs met my expectations. I called the dealership and took my car in the next day to the dealer. They had my car within the same day so I was satisfied. I also did not pay anything to the dealership. Zurich did a good job.
Had a great experience using this warranty program to have my alternator replaced. Everything was quick and easy-can't ask for more than that! The dealer worked seamlessly with Zurich to have my car repaired and back to me within 2 days.
Thanks for the feedback!! We're so happy you are pleased with your experience and your claim was handled to your satisfaction.Thank you again,

My vehicle service experience was awful because they, at first, told me I didn’t have any warranty. And then I had to wait for somebody to get there. And then I had waited for a while, then I left, and I just drove around the block, took a quick trip around the corner. The next thing I know, I had a complete flat tire. It was a bad experience. Thank God I was right next to the Kia place, so my husband took it around and told them that they needed to fix the tire because they actually put my tires inside out. The outside of the tire says, “Inside.” And they said it only really matters during weather. But my tires were on wrong, my AC wasn’t working, and my check engine light came on a couple of days ago. It randomly went off.
I just got the car but my AC wasn’t working. I didn’t have to use it for the while that I had it this couple of weeks. So, I had to take it in, and I had to pay $200. I was given a printout, and it said it was gonna be like 680 and that I was only gonna have to pay 200 for the deductible. But when I got the receipt, it was only gonna be like 5-something, and I’m paying 2-something of that, and Zurich was paying the rest. I was just confused why I had to pay anything seeing how I only had the car for a short time.
I purchased a new Corolla in December and the dealership went over the different auto warranty packages. Having the extra coverage and protection for the wheels, tires, windows, all the paint, and all that was a good deal for only a few dollars a month. One time, I spoke to Zurich because I was getting a lot of pushback from Toyota. I was really irritated because I called and told the dealership that I needed to get my wheel fixed and tried to schedule the appointment. They allowed it at first and then they called me to say that I needed to get authorization through Zurich first. So I told them that when I purchased the policy, I was told that they would do all that. Still, they told me that they weren’t gonna take my car.
I then called Zurich to make sure that I wasn’t crazy and the guy I spoke with was really good. He said that I absolutely do not need the authorization and the dealership is the one who should initiate and needs to go through any claim. He told me to tell them that and if that doesn't work then I should take my car to somebody else then Zurich would take care of me. So I called Toyota back and finally, they listened, and they were able to get it all covered. I had to take it back a week later to get the new wheel put on but it all ended up being fine. Although I got the hubcap not included within the warranty, which was weird, it wasn’t that much extra to replace. The coverage met my expectations for the repairs for the most part and I didn’t have a balance at all when I picked the car up.
Thank you, Yolanda, for sharing your experience. We are pleased the coverage met your expectations. And thank you for your business!

I bought the Zurich warranty for my Jeep through the Westbury Jeep dealership and when I needed a repair, the dealership submitted it for me. I expected to be covered completely but I still had to pay a fee for it. Then, when I looked on to CARFAX, the jeep has been serviced previously for a tire rotation. Even when I was at the dealership, they told me that my insurance didn’t cover the repair. So the people at the dealership sent me away the first time. It was not a very big issue to begin with. I had to contact other people though in order to come back a second time. The second time, they told me what was wrong and sent me home because they told me I have to schedule it and pay out of pocket myself but they didn’t even know about my warranty. I paid a deductible at the service center and they went through the warranty that was purchased with my vehicle. While my experience with the dealership is a completely different story, Zurich was great.
The salesperson that I was buying the car from or the finance person offered me not only the insurance but the remote starter as well, so for the money, it was well worth it and that was why I purchased the vehicle service contract from Zurich. And living in the New England area, it never hurts to have tire insurance. I had an incident a couple of months ago and used Zurich's service. It is not easy to get the tire and I have the insurance. I called the dealership and they told me to bring the car right in. They said they'd probably take a day or two to get the tire. I was scheduled to go on a business trip, so as soon as I got to the dealership, the tire was in transit to the shop, so they ended up doing the service that day. They took my information and saw that I was insured. They fixed it and I was on my way.
I was happy with the service of Hyundai but not of the road service. I called the Hyundai road service, but I was way behind in line. I was on a timeline to get to New York and I didn't have much time, so I ended up changing the tire myself and driving into the dealership. It took the road service too long, but it was no big deal. I didn't have any issues getting one tire replaced or Hyundai doing the service. They did it very quickly and it worked out that time. The experience was stressful, but it all worked out between the tire insurance/Zurich and the dealership. It helped and I had no problems with it. I had an excellent experience with Zurich.
Took my 2015 Ram 1500 truck in to Ram dealership in Tomah Wisconsin for electric power steering assist that was inoperative, dealership found corrosion on some wires by steering module-cleaned and repaired, called said it was ready to go, went to pick truck up, seemed to work fine, paid the 100 dollar deductible, next morning, was inoperative again. Called dealership, took truck back, found out that the corrosion on the connector to the steering module was just the start of the issue, the module itself was also faulty, Zurich did not ask me to pay deductible again as I had already paid it once.
I found out at dealership that it must have been a known problem and that Engineers from Ram/Fiat were re-engineering the issue and that it would be almost 2 months for the dealer to receive updated parts to repair my truck. Happens to be the only vehicle we have that the whole family can fit into (crew cab) wife, kids, stuff. Never batted an eye, they gave us a brand new 2018 Ford Supercrew F150 4x4 to drive until the repairs were made on the Ram 1500. No problems, Ram is fixed, had new truck to drive for a month and a half, (free) Zurich paid for parts and labor. Will be updating the Ram truck in a few years, will be buying truck from Brenengen in Tomah Wisconsin and will be buying extended auto warranty from Zurich, Won't hesitate.
David, we're so pleased you took the time to tell us about your positive experience with Zurich. Thank you for your business!

I tend to keep cars for a long time and the cost of service made me want to get a vehicle service contract. The dealer recommended Zurich and my experience with them has been excellent. The coverage met my expectations and when I took my vehicle in, Mercedes filed the claim on their computer and it worked. Zurich did a good job.
I've got a Cadillac and it needs an auto warranty. I had a flat tire and it took the guy 10 minutes fix it. The service was great. They handled it quickly and got it done. Zurich paid their portion of the claim.
Everybody oughta have an auto warranty and I do Zurich every time. When my wife was driving our car, we ruined the tire and they replaced it. It didn't take time. The coverage I received met my expectations.
Honest and feel can trust. Little on expensive side, but, all dealerships are. Fast service and good communication. Was able to get a rental car, for free, under my policy. And that is a great plus. Also they offer rides.
Well the dealership we chose was terrible. The warranty company was helpful until we needed more extensive work done. Instead of fixing the pistons and rings as a preventative measure they insist that a person blows the motor in order to get a new motor. I feel that it I more expensive to replace the motor. I feel fixing the problem before it happens would be much better.
I always purchase a vehicle service contract when I purchase a BMW. This time, I got one from Zurich. I had a good experience with their service. I knew there was something very bad with the tire because when I turned it on in the morning, it was very low. I filled it up with air right next to the house and by the time I got to work, it was back down. I've never had that happen before. It usually goes down while the car is parked, never while I'm driving. So I dropped it at Patrick BMW in Schaumburg. They called me back and they said that there was an actual hole in the tire. Zurich's coverage met my expectations and they paid their portion of the claim before I picked up the car. I was very satisfied with them.
I brought my car to Hansel Honda. My tire light coming on. This happened to me 3 times too. The first time they patch my tire had a nail in it. The 2nd time they patch it again not sure if it was the same tire tho. The 3rd time got a new tire. It was super easy. I love your service. Thank you.
Very unhappy with Zurich NOT West Herr Ford! Purchased my pre owned Ford Mustang from Northtown Hyundai and purchased an extended warranty contract from Zurich. Had a issue with the satellite radio. Antenna Fault. Thinking the best place to get a repair was at a Ford Dealer so I took it to West Herr Ford. They were great went over the car as I asked them to do and found the problem with the satellite Radio. There was a broken cable from the radio to the antenna. When West Herr Ford called Zurich for approval to do the work Zurich only approved so many hours of work but not the number of hours the Ford Dealer needed to complete the work. The only option I had was to pay for the additional hours needed by the dealer to complete the work properly. So I’m Out over two hundred dollars out of my pocket. Why did I purchase a extended service contract if Zurich is going to nickel and dime every claim. I’m very disappointed with Zurich!!!!

I have a Chevy and I got a Zurich vehicle service contract on it. I was told by the salesperson that if I ever had a problem with tires, they would fix them for free and if I ended up with a hole in it, they would replace them. So once, when both my back tires kept losing air, I took the car in and had them checked. I was told that there was something in one of the tires, and on the other one, the problem was around the valve stem, which then had to be replaced. I thought that it would all be covered but Zurich didn't cover the valve stem. Because of that, they only paid half of the whole job. It was $97 to do the two tires and I paid $38 for the valve plus labor of putting that in out of pocket.

I purchased a 2013 from the Mercedes Benz dealer and car was financed through Mercedes Benz dealership in Atlanta GA. I got Gap coverage insurance directly from the dealership, (no third party). My car was totaled Dec 28, 2019. Mercedes and Gap took nearly 3 months to close my case. I find it ridiculous to be made to pay for a vehicle that has clearly not operable and no longer in my possession. I received two late markings on my credit report and I am not happy about paying for a service I no longer have in my possession. Gap made me pay $2600 for three months that I was without a vehicle. I want my money back because this is clearly wrong and GAP coverage covers the remainder balance no matter what.

All the computers on the system need to be protected so I decided to get a vehicle service contract from Zurich. When I go to the dealership, they take care of things. In fact, when I took the car to the dealership, the people there called Zurich, got an okay and I picked up the car. But I didn't realize that Zurich had to have the person that the contract was under, come and sign for the paperwork. I ended up getting my husband added to the policy so in case he got out somewhere and I wasn't around, he can actually use it. My husband was informed that that was the way it was until after we took it to the dealership. That should've been explained a bit. Nonetheless, Zurich reps were fine. They announced that I was supposed to pay and I paid. I just wished there was a card that I can carry that had all the information on it.
I have new vehicles and the parts are so expensive if something goes wrong with them. It pays to get a vehicle service contract so I got Zurich’s contract for 6 years and I also got a 3-year extension on it. It is important that if something goes wrong, it’s covered. Then, when I had a problem with the front tire, I got road hazard on it. I was told that I needed a new tire as there was a bubble in it. The guy ordered it and told me to come back the day after tomorrow to get it. I came back the next day and it was done. They put a new tire on it and Zurich must have paid for it. I can’t ask for better than that as it’s gotta be a $300 tire. I was satisfied it was taken care of.
Thank you, William, for taking the time to share about your experience with Zurich. We are so pleased you are happy with your service.

I had purchased the vehicle service contract as part of my vehicle purchase from the dealership just over 2 years ago. Recently I had to have some work that was going to be significantly costly and the vehicle would not shift into gear. I took it back to the dealership I purchased it from (Within last 6 months the dealership changed names due to an acquisition). I had informed the dealership that I had coverage and was told during the sale to simply bring it back to the dealership and it would all be taken care of.
Being told that my service work will not be covered because there was no pre-authorization or having an adjuster come visit to see the work prior to approving. I have had warranties in the past and never heard of having to go through that especially when taking back to the selling dealership. The dealership even called Zurich to explain the situation and that THEY did not have the paperwork on file as they acquired another dealership and were still told no.
So I am out of pocket for the repairs as well as the initial "comprehensive" service warranty and each time I call Zurich they are reading from a script on how I simply did it all wrong and they will not cover it. When the 1st bullet on the letter they sent me states "Return your vehicle to the selling dealer OR call us immediately." So, Zurich is allowed to pick and choose criteria, but the paying customer is not.

I had a tire repaired on my Lincoln. Sewell Ford handled it for me and the experience at the dealership was acceptable. I just wasn't that impressed their handling of the claim. But I had no issue with the coverage from Zurich. It met my expectations and I didn't have to pay anything out of pocket.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. And thank you for your business!

The service at Rockland Chrysler Jeep was excellent. The coverage for the repair met our expectations. Zurich serviced the car and we paid nothing out of pocket.

I got a big vehicle and I wanna keep her safe all the time because I got my kids in there so I purchased a vehicle service contract from Zurich. I had a service repair which the dealership handled and it was a really good experience.
I had a flat tire and the manufacturer, Pirelli, claims and says on their website that the tire cannot be repaired. I had a tire repaired at a local shop to get me back on the road, then after that was done, I called Pirelli USA and they said, “The tire can’t be fixed. It’s not safe.” I called Zurich to get my claim moving so I could have the dealer order me a tire. Zurich said, “Is there air in the tire?” I said, “Yes.” They said, “Well, then it’s fine.” And I said, “No. It wasn’t supposed to be repaired in the first place, but we didn’t know that at the time.” Zurich's rep took a bunch of notes and put it on my account. I called the dealer and the dealer said, “We’re just gonna order you a tire and we’ll deal with Zurich at the time.” And so, when we get the tire in, I called Zurich, and there was nothing, just, “Okay. Fix it. Here’s the credit card. Pay for the tire.” So, it was up and down experience, like a yo-yo.
The tire eventually got done. It was just a little bit frustrating when I was told that if it’s holding air, it’s fine. Because it was not fine. I’ve had a lot of bad luck but we got it done. Eventually, Pirelli replaced the tire but not without an argument. It’s a brand-new Pirelli tire. It’s full of noise-canceling foam, which I didn’t even know was on the car. The whole process took two weeks because the tires are not easy to find and not easy to get, although that’s not Zurich’s problem. This is my second flat tire in the six months I’ve had the car. The first one was a total tire failure and that was seamless, where the tire took a week. I called Zurich and they gave the dealer the credit card over the phone, and I was on my way. My experience with Zurich at first was real complicated and then it got uncomplicated because I got the dealer involved. At the end, Zurich met my expectations.
I took my car to Al Serra Buick GMC for four different times and they contacted Zurich for me. The first time Al Serra couldn't figure out the issue. Then the second time, they told me the wrong issue. The third time, one of my injectors was popping up on the sensor. The fourth time, they found the issue and it was a system update. That experience was very hard and I had four rentals in a month. But Zurich did great and covered their part.
Thanks for sharing information about your experience with Zurich. We're so happy you are pleased and that your claim was handled to your satisfaction.Thank you again,

I decided to purchase a vehicle service contract from Zurich for the security, knowing that I can get things taken care of, and everything was outstanding. My car wouldn't turn on and I couldn't drive it so I had to have my car towed to the Honda dealer. By the time I got there, the mechanic there had already called Zurich and got everything sorted out, figured out what was the problem with the car. I just had to pay my deductible. Everything was quick, easy and simple. I was glad that my car was running perfectly. So, it was a good experience.
I have a leased car, and I thought it’d be smart to add a vehicle service contract really quickly. I got rim and tire protection and ding and dent protection from Zurich. I recently used it. Something was stuck in my tire when I drove over it, within like the first month of having my car, so I needed a new tire immediately. I dropped my tire off at Pride Chevrolet, and the next day, it was done. Zurich paid for the claim and I didn't have to pay for anything.
When I called Zurich, their reps let me know of any licensed dealerships or auto body shops I could go to with the Zurich contract. They were pretty fast. Thereafter, I went into a dealership, told them I had the contract and they took care of everything. When I went in again afterwards, the dealership guys just gave me my key and told me to have a good day. The coverage has been far and beyond my expectations thus far.
I only used my warranty twice in 6 years but I can definitely say that the coverage was fast, easy and convenient. I brought the car in for a tire pressure sensor and a door handle(covered). The dealer discovered some problems that I wasn't aware of and everything was covered and paid with no problem. Thank you.
Zurich covers a couple of things on my Kia car. Once, I had an issue with a tire and I had to get my car to a small Kia company to get it fixed. That company was the one who contacted Zurich for me. Then they were able to get the issue fixed and everything went fine. I was very happy. I didn't have to pay for anything.
Zurich was recommended by a Ford dealer and I have been with the company since I bought the truck. It has been a couple of months now and so far, they've been good. I have bumper-to-bumper and I haven't had any trouble. If there is a problem, I take the truck to the Ford dealer who figures out what the matter is. Then, they call Zurich and Zurich says approved or not, and away we go. I have a $100 deductible and I understand all that. I hate to use that kind of stuff, but the way vehicles are today, it will pay for the policy.
I purchased a vehicle service contract with Zurich to build my credit. The coverage for vehicle repairs that I received from them met my expectations. When I filed a claim and my car was being repaired at Mitsubishi, the vehicle service experience was simple and the response time was quick. My payment was quick as well and Zurich paid their portion of the claim before I picked up the car.
Thank you for sharing your experience. We're pleased you had a positive experience and your claim was paid promptly.
Thank you for your business!
