Any time someone buys a car there is always some amount of risk involved. Even new cars aren’t made to last forever but they are not meant to break down the moment you leave the car lot. Unfortunately, there are too many times when this is exactly what happens and the sad thing is that there have even been times when the breakdown was not covered under the new car warranty! Although these instances are few and far between, this is not the case with used cars and why it is so very important to find a reliable used car warranty.
Many car warranties don’t cover normal wear and tear and there are so many exclusions that it almost isn’t worth the paper it is written on. One of the problems is that the car warranty company doesn’t do an inspection on the vehicle and when something goes wrong they say it isn’t covered because of the useful lifetime of the part that caused the breakdown. If you are going to buy a used car, find a warranty that doesn’t have the breakdown, mileage limits, consequential damage or wear and tear exclusions in the small print. If you are being pressured to sign on the dotted line, take a step back and re-read the small print.
There is a truly revolutionary car warranty that was designed with the consumer in mind and as Quentin Willson says, it is a warranty without ‘weasel words’ in the small print. Warrantywise believes that words such as those should be banned from car warranties and that is exactly what they have done. No one knows the automotive industry better than Quentin Willson the award winning journalist, and as an adviser that was instrumental in developing the warranty, you can be sure it was planned to offer the ultimate in cover.
