CarShield is a big name in the extended auto warranty industry, in large part thanks to their robust TV ad campaigns featuring celebrities like Ice-T (love you, Ice!). We found them to be friendly and helpful and to have reasonable options for the kinds of plans we were looking for. Unfortunately, CarShield is a reseller rather than a plan administrator, so the company’s support only goes so far and, as with many of these companies, we ran into some smoke and mirrors around pricing. Nonetheless, it was one of the better reseller options we tested, thanks to its helpful customer service, easy-to-use app, and month-to-month options.
