An auto warranty is an obligation from the manufacturer that your car is as factually stated or legally implied and states what repair or replacement will be provided by the dealer or manufacturer in the event that the auto fails to meet the terms of the warranty. When you buy a new car, dealers are required by law to let you know what warranty is offered with each vehicle. The purchase of a new car will generally include at least a 3 year or 36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. Familiarize yourself with the concept of a warranty, so you can ensure that the one that comes with your car will cover everything you need it to.
A full manufacturers warranty provides all service necessary free of charge to the owner. Check to see if your dealer will provide a temporary replacement car for you to drive in the event your car needs repair work. A new car warranty covers two things. The bumper-to-bumper part of a warranty will cover everything except the items which naturally wear out on your car, such as tires or brakes, light bulbs, wiper blades. The powertrain warranty will cover everything that makes your car move - the engine and the transmission. Check exactly what your warranty covers. They can differ and may sometimes be misleading.
Some dealerships will offer you an auto-extend warranty. This may be worth considering. It is like car repair insurance - a service contract that will pay for repairs on the mechanical systems that are covered in the contract. If you buy your car new and you intend to update it every 2-3 years, you probably won't need an extended warranty. The vehicle should be covered in the manufacturer's warranty. If you are intending on keeping your car for a longer period of time, it may be of use to have an extended warranty. Technology is advanced in cars these days, and the car may have a complex computer system in it that can be very expensive to repair if something should go wrong. You can choose from basic, mid-range or deluxe warranties, the deluxe option will leave you far more covered, so this is probably the option to consider if you are buying an expensive car. Ask about what you are not covered in. You will generally not be covered in the following: glass, headlamps, taillights, bulbs, trim, moldings, bright metal, upholstery, paint, exhaust systems (including catalytic converters), tires, batteries, brake rotors, drums, struts, and shock absorbers.
