Most of the people are now choosing to purchase the used vehicles as there is a rising cost of the new motor vehicles. As the buyer, you need to know what kind of car warranty is available for the vehicle you are looking to buy. 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.
Just because you have a car warranty, this will not mean that your vehicle will not experience any problems. 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 will need to take the time to research on any vehicle that you are hoping to buy. It will be good for you to ask the dealer to tell you if the car has ever been returned under the lemon raw or even 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.
It is also recommended that you ask the dealer if there are any warranties on the car that are still valid from the manufacturer and whether the dealer will offer any warranties on the vehicle. Do not just take the word of dealer but you need to confirm any manufacturer warranties from the manufacturer. You will need to ensure that you get a written and detailed description of what is being covered.
There is still a chance for you to find options for the warranty even when the dealer does not offer any warranties and there are no warranties remaining on the car. For an additional price, you will find that some of the dealerships can offer the add-on warranties. 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. You can find that the warranty servicing has been paid for completely or the third-party company will deal with this. 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. 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. As these warranties are quite costly, you will need to ensure that they offer all the services that you may need.
