Used Cars Have Warranties, Too

Are you in the market for a new car, but want a warranty to cover repairs? Many new cars come with a warranty deal, but you might not realize that a warranty is not limited to new cars; used vehicles have them, too. What types of coverage you get with a used car will vary. Used-car warranties are generally a mix of typical areas covered, and range from 30 days to 100,000 miles of coverage.

The simplest warranties are called basic used-car warranties. These typically include a pre-determined percentage of coverage for repairs and parts for a pre-determined amount of time, anywhere from 30 days to one year after purchase. The components included in the basic package are also specified.

Extended-length warranties are a step up from a basic package, giving you more coverage for longer. They are offered by auto manufacturers or third-party vendors, and also range in depth and duration. Some may provide coverage for up to 100,000 miles, though you can also choose a plan that only fixes major engine failures.

One of the best options, coverage-wise, is a certified pre-owned warranty. These are essentially two warranties in one: the original manufacturer’s agreement plus additional coverage from the dealer. Perks of the pre-owned choice often include roadside assistance, bumper-to-bumper coverage, and extended power-train warranties.
