Vehicle Warranty Coverage

Most new vehicles come with a “Bumper to Bumper” basic vehicle warranty, with specific coverage terms determined by each individual manufacturer. The Bumper to Bumper vehicle warranty coverage is different from “service contracts” (commonly called “extended warranties”) as the Bumper to Bumper is provided by the manufacturer as part of the vehicle purchase whereas service contracts are sold separately by the dealer. The typical domestic manufacturer’s vehicle warranty is 3 years/36,000 miles and for vehicles manufactured in Asia, 4 years/50,000 miles. Although this chart seeks to summarize the major manufacturers’ warranty coverage, many manufacturers change or update their warranties from year to year, please refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for information about your warranty and its specific terms and coverage. And also check out our Car Buying Tips; in addition to lemon laws, there are many other federal and state consumer protection laws that can help you before, during and after your purchase.
