Used Car Warranties & Pre-Existing Conditions

When purchasing a used vehicle is important to be sure that the vehicle is in excellent working order before finalizing a deal or taking delivery. It is obvious that purchasing an auto warranty when you have a vehicle it is no longer covered by the manufacturer is an excellent idea to protect you against any unforeseen repair expenses that might arise. It is not uncommon to have repairs pop up you were not expecting that can cost $500, $1,500, or even $3,000 or more.

However, many consumers are not aware that unlike medical insurance, automobile warranty companies are not obligated to cover a vehicle’s pre-existing conditions. To prevent getting caught off guard with a pre-existing issue with a vehicle is strongly recommended that you have the vehicle inspected by a qualified used vehicle inspection service or dealership prior to finalizing a purchase. If you are purchasing the vehicle from a dealership do not automatically assume that they have fully inspected it themselves even though they might have. It is worthwhile to have a second opinion by hiring an independent inspector to check the vehicle out. If you are purchasing a vehicle privately it is even more important to have the vehicle checked out by a qualified mechanic or inspection service. This will help you avoid getting caught off guard with a repair that may not be covered by your auto warranty.

Auto Advantage not only provides the highest quality car warranties in the industry, but also has a full independent inspection service that can check out your vehicle prior to the vehicle’s purchase or warranty activation.

What You Should Know About New Car Warranties

A warranty is a guarantee made to a consumer by the seller for the product that is sold. When a warranty is for a vehicle, it is a contract that covers the repair and replacement of car parts for a certain amount of time.

New car warranties offer a variety of benefits. When the consumer purchases a car from a manufacturer, they are provided with a guarantee that if any defects or mechanical failures happen in the car, the cost for repair or replacement of the part in question will be covered. There are two types of new car warranties. The first warranty is the powertrain warranty, which covers the parts of the car that make it run. The second warranty is the bumper-to-bumper warranty, which covers all of the parts of the car from the front bumper to the back bumper.

New car warranties provide motorists with peace of mind when receiving bills from the repair shop.
