Invalidating car warranty
Buy a used car from a manufacturer franchised dealer and the warranties are likely to be similarly extensive – only excluding repairs to things like the exhaust, wheels and battery.
Most non-franchise independent used car dealers offer a three-month warranty as a guarantee when they sell a car, while many offer extended warranties at extra cost.
When you buy a used car that's out of its warranty period, dealers will usually offer an extended warranty.
If you’re buying a slightly older car bought out of its initial cover period and not from a franchised main dealer, a warranty could make financial sense for those who don’t want to risk the cost of a major repair.
Approved Used warranties tend to be offered only on the make of car the franchised dealer represents.
