If you have ever had the experience of having to pay for a major repair on your car just out of warranty, you know a great warranty can save a car buyer plenty of money. One way to make sure that your vehicle is covered with a great warranty is to buy a car that comes with one. Warranties vary among each individual automaker and model. Here are some great choices listed by the automaker.
Even though Hyundai vehicles are reliable, they come with great warranties. There is a five-year, 60,000 general warranty on the car. Plus, there is a ten-year Powertrain warranty as long as the car is not sold. And, there is a seven-year anti perforation warranty against rust or similar damage. Seems like a great consideration if you live in a snowy area.
Known for their Lancer SUV, rated tops in safety tests, Mitsubishi also supplies a five-year, 60,000 mile general warranty on a new car. It adds a ten-year Powertrain warranty for the original owner, a seven-year anti perforation warranty, and then throws in a five-year free roadside assistance program. This is a very good deal.
This is not your grandparent’s car anymore. But it is clear the grandparents were very savvy. Volvos come with a four-year general warranty. Volvos also come with 12-year anti perforation and corrosion warranty. The new car buyer also receives three years of free maintenance and four years of a free road hazard service.
All new Infinitis come with a four-year, 50,000 mile general warranty. The Powertrain is guaranteed for six years or 70,000 miles and there is an anti-corrosion warranty for seven years. The company also offers a two-year free roadside assistance program. All in all, this is a lot of insurance against any mechanical issues in the future.
The GM Buick line comes with a four-year, 50,000 mile general warranty. It also comes with a six-year, 70,000 mile Powertrain warranty and a six-year, 100,000 mile anti-corrosion warranty. The new Buicks also come with a six-year or 70,000 roadside assistance service. This is the best deal among US automakers. Buicks do cost a bit more, but they also come with a much longer warranty than most GM vehicles.
Kia offers a number of well-priced vehicles with long warranties. The new Kia comes with a five-year, 60,000 general warranty. Kias also come with a six-year anti-corrosion warranty, and a 10-year Powertrain warranty for the original owner. And, if you break down, they offer a 24-hour roadside assistance service free for six years or 70,000 miles. This little car from Korea offers much to the buyer in the warranty area.
So, as you can see, there is no need to accept the very common, but limited three-year warranty available on many new cars sold today. It is not necessary to sacrifice quality or comfort to purchase a car with a great warranty. Great deals are out there. And, this doesn’t even include buying an extended warranty, which is another option to extend the life of the warranty on your car.
