▪ An extended warranty provides protection for breakdowns of products after the standard guarantee expires.
▪ Before paying an additional cost for an extended warranty, consumers should carefully read its terms and conditions of use.
▪ Consumers are responsible to shop around and compare products with different standard warranties as these may provide the same benefits as extended warranties.
▪ An extended warranty should only be purchased when it provides additional protection than that established at law.
▪ Consumers cannot be obliged by sellers to buy an extended warranty.
▪ Legal action may be taken by consumers if sellers fail to provide any of the benefits promised in the guarantee.
