What You Need To Know About Your Car Warranty

Most of the people are now choosing to purchase the used vehicles as there is a rising cost of the new motor vehicles. It is vital that you get to know the kind of warranty that the car you are hoping to purchase has. You should keep in mind that some of the car dealers will tend to offer the limited warranties on the vehicles while others will not offer these warranties.

You should know that the vehicle warranty does not guarantee that your vehicle will not get any issues. Even when it has a warranty, a bad car will spend a lot of time in the repair shop and also leave you 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. If you have a mechanic you can trust you can take the car to them for a checkup before you can sign any papers.

Take the time to ask the dealer if they are offering any warranty for the vehicle and whether there are any warranties that are still valid from the manufacturer. Do not just take the word of dealer but you need to confirm any manufacturer warranties from the manufacturer. 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. Compared to the used car warranties, you will find that these warranties tend to be more extensive. You will find that they will provide for more types of repairs and replacement of parts. 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. You can find that the warranty servicing has been paid for completely or the third-party company will deal with this. These warranties will cost you more but will offer more extensive coverage.

If the dealer does not offer any warranties and does not resell the third-party warranties, you should find a third-party warranty service. You are sure to find the companies that will be ready to offer the used car warranties even when the vehicle you have bought is from a private car owner. These warranties are usually costly and you should be sure that they offer all the services you need.
