RoadStar Services, providing a new take on extended vehicle service contracts for car owners, announced the results of a survey revealing the sentiments of over 1,000 car owners on extended vehicle service contracts for their vehicles. Of note, nearly 64% of respondents would either consider purchasing an extended vehicle contract (57%) or already own one (7%). In addition, when asked to rate options that would make them inclined to purchase an extended service plan, respondents overwhelmingly chose roadside assistance, which was rated number one by nearly half of all respondents.
“Knowing what is valued by our customers allows us to focus on providing the right service at a realistic and reasonable price point,” said Anders Steele, VP of Communications for RoadStar Services. “Additionally we were interested to see that over half of car owners would consider purchasing an extended service contract.”
