How do

Car Warranties work?

Just so you know, we’ll handle your info according to our privacy statement.

When you buy a new vehicle, usually you’ll receive an automatic warranty along with it. Warranties are great, but you should keep in mind what is and isn’t covered as well as how long the warranty lasts. 

Learn the Details of Your Specific Warranty

You should never assume that the word “warranty” means that every single thing is covered. Every warranty covers specific things, and you should refer to your papers to see what those things are. Usually, a warranty covers problems that are at the manufacturer’s expense rather than collisions. This could be a factory defect or faulty part. And even then, warranties have what is basically an expiration date. Most lose effect after three years or after you hit around 35,000 miles.  

If the company you purchase from is generous, your warranty may cover your first two oil changes at their service center as long as it’s within a certain time frame or mileage. An oil change doesn’t usually come cheap, so if you can get them for free don’t let those slip by!  

If you’re not sure what is covered with your vehicle, you can always call and ask. The dealership where you bought your car from will have your information on file. They’ll be able to tell you if your problem can be fixed at their service center and how much you would have to pay (if anything).

Some factory warranties don’t last a long time, but you have the option of opting in for an extended warranty if you would still like to keep your coverage. It may cost a little extra, but it could be worth it in the long run.
