Why used car warranties are oh-so-worth it!

Why used car warranties are oh-so-worth it!


Don’t miss your chance to get a 3 Year Warranty included on the purchase of your new used car.

Why is having a used car warranty an advantage?

Those familiar with the car industry will know that cars are more durable and reliable than ever before. But that doesn’t mean that nothing will ever go wrong on a vehicle, irrespective of whether it is new or used. These days drivers expect so much more when purchasing a car; digital radio, air conditioning and advanced safety features are to name but a few of the creature comforts so many of us enjoy in our cars. And the majority of these more sophisticated features can’t be fixed with a box of spanners and a “can-do” attitude! Any issue diagnosis and repairs can be very specialised, and as many replacement parts now come as sealed units, it’s often impossible to replace just a small element if something has gone wrong.

Having a warranty in place to cover any problems, can not only be very convenient, because repairs are swiftly and easily arranged, but also great for the bank balance too.


What exactly is a warranty?

A warranty is a written guarantee that is issued to the buyer of an item, by the item’s manufacturer. And it is a promise, by the manufacturer to repair or replace it, the item, if it’s necessary, within a specified period of time, no matter how expensive the repair might be. You can think of a warranty in a similar way to an insurance policy as you are making a payment to insure whatever you have bought.

The great thing about warranties is that they are far more enforceable than a simple “guarantee” and they tend to last longer. So if you have a warranty in place for a vehicle you have purchased, you really can enjoy peace of mind whilst making the most of all the fun of driving. So a warranty is not something you would usually expect to get for free.
