How to Check if a Car Is Still Under Warranty
In many instances, when consumers purchase a used car, they want to know if the original manufacturer’s warranty still protects that car. Even if you bought your vehicle brand new, it can sometimes be challenging to keep track of warranty terms.
Moreover, different parts of your car may be covered under separate warranties. For example, many new vehicles come with a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. If your camshaft were to fail, it would be covered under these terms, but the standard warranty would cover an issue with your power windows.
Here’s a quick, concise guide to checking if your car is still under warranty. Before we begin, we should highlight that this guide covers the manufacturer’s warranties only. If you’ve purchased an extended warranty plan for your vehicle, you’ll need to reach out to the warranty provider to retrieve information applicable to your specific terms.
