How do you know which one is good or bad? These 3rd party auto warranties should the attorney general have these on file and would BBB have a rating on them?

The dealership that sold the policy should also be accountable.
They made a profit and should back up what they sell.
When I buy something like this I overwrite on the terms to what makes me happy.
Then I tell the seller sign on my dotted line!
Most of the time they will sign just to get the sell.
If they are confident in thier product, they should back it up.

A good friend of mine had a 3rd party auto warranty from a company that has gone bankrupt and disappeared.

That's a different wrinkle on this situation.

What is the point of this article? What the customer bought was an extended service CONTRACT. A contract is a legal document binding 2 parties. First of all, what idiot pays nearly 3 grand for something and doesn't even read it and secondly, legally this company "Warranty America" cannot pay this claim. It would be a breach of contract. These warranty companies are owned by insurance companies, which in turn pay the claims out of a central fund. If the contract doesn't cover a repair, they cannot get the necessary funds to cover the claim. Come on dude, did you serious spend 3 grand on a contract and not read the fine print. You're stupid, stop blaming the warranty company, they did nothing wrong/illegal/unjust. They are just adhering to the contract you paid for and agreed to.
