The warranties will generally cover the costs of those repairs, parts & labour. There are limitations – you must still pay for normal wear and tear items like new tyres, light bulbs and other general maintenance when required, but the warranty should cover those unexpected mechanical failures.
Most new purchases come with a 2 or 3 year warranty. You can arrange cover for your car or boat for up to 3 more years, commencing from the moment your manufacturer’s warranty ceases. Perfect for those who want to keep their car or boat long term, but without the worry of unexpected mechanical costs.
Sure, you’re buying a car that looks, smells and drives great. BUT, you have no idea how it’s the previous owner treated the car. Was it thrashed? Was it smashed? Was it serviced? (Read our tips on buying a car here).
You may like to consider a mechanical warranty for any used car or boat, even if purchased from a reputable dealer.
