Cars today are more reliable than ever before. However, this still doesn’t mean they will last forever and that things won’t break down. One important thing that can protect you is having a warranty on your car.

Most car buyers think warranties only come with brand new cars, but that isn’t true. In fact, many used cars still have at least a portion of the original factor warranty. Plus, buyers always have the option of purchasing an extended warranty, whether they buy their car new or used.

Benefits of a Used Car Warranty

There are numerous advantages to having an extended warranty. For one, buyers can choose the exact type of coverage they want. For example, if the used vehicle has a long powertrain factory warranty, but the bumper-to-bumper warranty is near expiration, you can just add more coverage for that, or vice versa.

Another benefit to having a warranty is the fact that it can cover expensive repairs. Vehicles are more complex than ever with numerous mechanical, electrical, and computerized systems. If any of these systems fail, it can be costly to diagnose the problem and get it repaired. Make sure you choose warranty coverage that includes the technology features you want to be covered.

When you purchase a warranty through a dealership, you get the added convenience of having all the paperwork and payment information processed in the same location. In addition, OEM-backed warranties allow you to get any warranty repairs done at any dealership in the country that sells that brand of car.

By getting an additional warranty on your pre-owned car, you can gain an extra boost of confidence knowing you are protected in case something does go wrong with your car.
