Extended warranty for used cars is basically an extension of the current warranty to ensure that it is covered in the event of a breakdown or if it has any mechanical faults. A manufacturers warranty will only last for a short period of time, at which point, the individual that owns the vehicle will have to pay extra in order to be covered from then onwards.
This will mean that any costs involved with fixing the vehicle will not be the liability of the driver. Depending on the car manufacturer, you get the safety net from just 2 years up to 7 years. On average it will be just 3 years, so if you buy an older vehicle, the cover is already expired and you're on your own facing all the problems related to owning a used car.
After purchasing a used car, it is incredibly easy to get extended warranty. Of course, for many people, they will find that if the car is less than a few years old, there is probably some warranty still left on the car. The majority of warranties can be transferred from one person to another, so it might be that the driver simply needs to extend the warranty rather than paying for it from day one. Drivers can get a quote instantly anyway to gauge how much it will cost in the future.
There is a lot to think about before actually paying for a warranty. For instance, different providers will offer different clauses in their policy and this will affect the price. The cover period on the majority of cars is 36,000 miles or three years, which ever of the two comes first. Once either of these two points is reached, the warranty will end. It is at this point when the individual will need to apply for an extended warranty period.
