Auto Warranty

The manufacturer's warranty that comes standard with new vehicles typically lasts for either three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Both figures may seem like a long time, but you should not get caught flat-footed when one of those conditions is reached and the warranty expires. Research warranty extension services online to find a plan that covers your vehicle. Also, if you purchase a used car, you are covered by the Lemon law. However, defects that do not substantially impair the vehicle's use, market value or safety are not covered by the law. Defects caused by the consumer's abuse, neglect or unauthorized alteration of the car, or defects that do not show within the first 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever occurs first are not covered, either. Get peace of mind by signing up for an auto warranty.
