What Is Covered Under A Car Warranty??

All major vehicle systems—If you purchase a bumper-to-bumper extended warranty, most parts of your vehicle are covered, including air conditioning.

Normal wear and tear—While factory warranties cover defective materials or workmanship, some extended warranties also cover repairs and replacements from regular use.

What is the purpose of a car warranty?

An automobile warranty is a promise by a manufacturer or dealer that it will repair or replace defects in your car, or that your car will be of a certain quality, for a specified period of time.

What is the difference between car warranty and car insurance?

Car insurance may help cover damage to your vehicle from sudden or accidental causes, such as a collision, theft, fire or natural disaster. A car warranty, on the other hand, helps cover mechanical breakdowns or failure of certain parts of your car, such as the engine or transmission, according to Edmunds.

Can you get a warranty on a used car?

In general, we don’t recommend buying an extended warranty on a used car. Warranty companies are in business to make money, and they’ve usually done their homework. This means you’ll likely spend more on the warranty than any repair costs your car may accrue during the period when the warranty is valid.
