Earmarks of a Good Vehicle Warranty

When buying a new or used car, it is important to keep in mind that the Vehicle Warranty or warranties that are available with one type of vehicle may not be the same as with other cars on the market. For this reason, it is often a good idea to not make assumptions about what will and will not be covered under the warranty. Here are a couple of things to make sure are included under any circumstances.

First, a decent vehicle warranty will include basic coverage that addresses issues such as the replacement of key engine components. Parts like cylinder heads, pistons, and valves are examples of things to look for. Ideally, the basic warranty will also include coverage of the gear box as well as engine components. Be sure to compare the coverage offered under the basic warranty with the protection offered by an extended vehicle warranty point by point. This will give you some idea of how much extra protection you get for the extra cost, making it easier to determine if the expense is worth it.

Also, consider the duration of the vehicle warranty. With newer vehicles, there is a good chance that the warranty is in effect for a longer period than in the past. Where at one time obtaining a warranty for more than a couple of years may have required going with an extended plan, it is not unusual to find basic warranties on new cars that will cover four years. As long as the terms are clear and strike you as covering the essentials, that basic vehicle warranty will be enough. If there are any doubts, you may find that the extended warranty plan is a better fit for your needs.
