What is the manufacturer warranty?

Every new car comes with a manufacturer warranty. This is a basic warranty also known as bumper-to-bumper coverage. Some vehicles also come with a limited powertrain warranty.

The manufacturer's warranty is a promise by your vehicle's manufacturer to repair or pay for the repair of any damage to your car for a specified number of years and/or miles.

Typical manufacturer's warranties are 3 years/30,000 miles, or 4 years/50,000 miles. The warranty manual will have the specific warranty information for your car.

Chances are when you buy a used vehicle, this manufacturer's warranty will be expired or expiring soon. That's why you should always look into an auto extended warranty for your used car.
