Only Dealers can Sell Warranties

“Consumers should be careful when purchasing warranties like Vehicle Service Contracts over the phone or online,” said Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara. “If something seems too good to be true, most of the time it is. I urge consumers to look into any company offering a vehicle warranty and make sure they are licensed by the Department of Insurance and sold through dealers licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Contact the Department of Insurance for help. We are here to ensure companies are delivering on their promises and are doing so in compliance with our consumer protection laws.”
