Driver beware, perhaps you got this letter in the mail. It says you need to extend your vehicle coverage, immediately.

Instead of paying up, one Springfield woman steered the notice to On Your Side.

"It's very economical to drive it and also a lot of fun," said Shirah Miriam Aumann.

She takes care of her car. Her Mom even gave it a special name.

"She couldn't remember Suzuki, so she always called it a Zucchini," she said.

We met up with Miriam Aumann and Zucchini at Rick's Automotive. It's tune up day for an upcoming road trip. Meantime, she got this notice that states:

"Due to the nature of this program, your ability to receive this highest level of coverage is very time sensitive."

The notice says she needs her vehicle service contract updated.

On Your Side called the number. They couldn't give Ashley Reynolds a price tag, but said she's covered.

"It's not a for sure thing," said Micah Blake with Rick's Automotive.

Put the brakes on. Do your homework.

"I have never heard of anything like this. Usually in our area there's different extended warranty programs that are local," said Blake.

The letter come from Plano, Texas.

There are a few different versions of this notice. Some say coverage. Some say warranty.

If you have questions, call your manufacture directly.

Some notices show the make and model of car you drive. Don't be alarmed by that. That's public information from property tax records.
