A used car can prove to be a great bargain for your buck, but you never truly know what you’re getting into. That’s why an extended warranty can be a smart investment for anyone buying a used car.
Here are three good reasons why coupling an extended warranty with a used car can be a good idea.
The new warranty programs offered by manufacturers for new cars typically feature coverages that vary in both years and mileage for different parts. For example, the air conditioner may only be covered for three years while the muffler is covered for five years and the body is protected from rust for 10 years. When you buy a used car and the warranty is transferred, you may end up with coverage for only certain parts of the car.
An extended warranty can be tailored to fill in the gaps left behind by the original warranty and provide coverage for any expired parts or service.
Today’s new cars are being built with an abundance of technology that can be difficult and expensive to fix. An extended warranty that provides coverage for a complex audio system or safety feature can save you from a pricey fix down the road.
Plus, car manufacturers have begun placing patents on replacement parts, which have driven up the cost of repairs.
Many extended warranties are transferable from one owner to the next. So if you’re looking to sell your used car, complementing it with an extended warranty can increase its value and make it more appealing to buyers.
