What is a service contract on my used car?

A service contract provides repair or maintenance for a specific period of time. Unlike a warranty, it is not covered in the cost of the vehicle; therefore, you will pay extra for it. Read it carefully and keep asking questions if you need to, until you fully understand the terms.
