Extended car warranties sweetening a used car purchase
Posted on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 3:50:42 PM
According to the Warranty Group, car dealers are finding that consumers are paying much more attention to older used cars than ever before. This substantial increase in popularity is due to more and more vehicles being backed by an extended used car warranty.
For people looking to buy a car, the extended used car warranty is a luring bonus that was often not available in previous years. The extra protection combined with secure auto financing makes it possible for a consumer to buy a car and use it for a lengthy period of time. Before purchasing an extended warranty plan, check with the manufacturer to ensure it is honored by all dealerships.
Just like finding the right auto financing option, make sure to do research on the warranties available. Getting stuck paying for an extended plan with spotty coverage or one that requires a long drive to get to the right dealer can create problems down the road.
