What You Need To Know About Your Car Warranty

The cost of the new motor vehicles keeps rising and this has led to individuals opting to purchase the used vehicles. You, as the buyer, should take the time to know the type of warranty that is on the vehicle that you are looking to buy. Some of the dealers will offer the limited warranties on the used cars, while some will not.

You should know that the vehicle warranty does not guarantee that your vehicle will not get any issues. Even when a bad vehicle has a warranty, you will find that it will still spend a lot of time in the garage and you will also find that you are stranded several times. You should research on the history of the car that you are looking to purchase. You also need to ask the dealer if the vehicle was ever returned under the lemon raw or in an accident. Before you even think of signing any papers, you will need to find a mechanic you can trust and take the vehicle to them for a checkup.

As the dealer if the car has any valid warranties from the manufacturer and whether the dealer offers any warranty on the car. You should verify any original manufacturer warranties from the manufacturer instead of taking the dealer’s word for it. What is being covered by the warranty should be given to you when written and also detailed.

Even when the car does not have any remaining warranties and the dealer does not offer any, you still have other options for the used car warranties. You will find that some dealerships will still offer some add-on warranties for a separate price. These warranties tend to be more extensive than the used car warranties. More types of repairs and also the replacement of parts are covered by these warranties. In other case, the car dealer may also have an agreement with a third-party warranty provider who provides an extended warranty for every purchase. The third-party will deal with the warranty service or it will be fully paid for. You will find that the warranties will provide more extensive coverage and will be more costly.

If the dealer does not offer any warranties and does not resell the third-party warranties, you should find a third-party warranty service. Some companies will provide used car warranties even on the cars that are purchased from the private car owners. As these warranties are quite costly, you will need to ensure that they offer all the services that you may need.
