Check out the engine

Have a mechanic thoroughly check the used car you are thinking of buying. Better safe than sorry. You should also check the vehicle history report at You will need to have the VIN of your car to do this.

Does it already have a warranty?

Once it’s been checked over and you have established that the car is in good condition, find out whether or not it is still under warranty. Oftentimes, if the car is only a couple of years old, it will still be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. These warranties are great because they cover a lot.

Buy an extended warranty

If there is no manufacturer's warranty on the car, start researching extended warranties. Extended warranties generally cover used cars up to 150,000 miles. Try to find one that covers more than just mechanical breakdowns. Look for one that also includes wear and tear. Be sure that it covers the large repair items, such as work on the engine, transmission, fuel pump, timing belt and more.

Do your research

Used car extended warranties are a dime a dozen. So be sure to search the Internet and price a potential one carefully. With some perseverance, you'll find the perfect deal that will help keep your car on the road, and your cash in your pocket.
