A car warranty is a written agreement between the manufacturer of your car and yourself, the owner, to pay for the repair or replacement of damaged parts of your car. It is the manufacturer’s guarantee that all the functional components of your car are in proper operating condition. Damages that are covered by a car warranty ordinarily need to be due to faulty materials or workmanship or both. The warranties do not cover accidents, acts of God, vandalism, and mechanical failure. Some car manufacturers offer extended car warranties in addition to the basic warranty.
Basic car warranties typically cover normal wear and tear as well as accidents and damage caused by vandalism. Extensive warranties on the other hand cover everything that is covered under the basic warranty. Some warranties cover only a vehicle’s engine, while others cover just the paint job. There are warranties available for just the transmission and/or engine. A car warranty will usually cover you for damage to the body, roof, interior, frame, wheels and tires as well as any mechanical breakdowns that occur with your vehicle.

Car warranties cover you for an injury that occurs to you or someone else because of the car’s negligence.
Most car warranties also include coverage for rental vehicles that are financed through the dealer’s finance department. This coverage is called ‘pay for it in the event of total loss’.
