Manufacturer’s Warranty of a Car

The topic in discussion today is the warranty that is offered by the manufacturer of a car, we will be discussing what it covers and what it does not cover. The thing about warranties is that you cannot be lured in just by hearing the word warranty and you have got to be very alert while the salesperson is explaining the warranty.

The first thing that you need to know about warranties is that they do not cover everything and the salesperson might not go into detail so you would need to ask him/her to explain the points of a warranty fully. Before you go out to buy your car, you should click here and read up about warranties so that you are not unaware of anything. Let us look at the two most common warranties in existence and then we can talk about the things that warranties do not cover.

Bumper to Bumper

This is a pretty common warranty and is generally known as limited warranty as it does cover things like oil changes or any other kind of ordinary maintenance.

Powertrain

This warranty also does not cover regular maintenance but you do get warranty for engine, transmission and other parts of the car that move.

Points Not Covered

The first thing that you need to know is that even though warranties offer general coverage, they do not cover everything. The warranty of your car would not cover anything that would stop working or malfunction because of use as it is the responsibility of the owner and it is not a manufacturing fault and the examples of such things are tires, brakes, batteries etc. Another thing to keep in mind is that the warranty does not include the maintenance of the exterior.
