Before paying for an additional warranty (extended warranty), be aware that all used vehicles purchased from a merchant are covered by warranties provided by law.

Information provided by the merchant

Before offering to sell you an additional warranty, merchants must:

  • make you aware of certain legal warranties and their content by reading you the following text: "The law provides a warranty on the goods you are purchasing or leasing: they must serve for normal use for a reasonable length of time." The merchant must also provide you written notice that contains solely the required information (245.5 KB);
  • verbally inform you of the existence and length of the warranty provided at no charge by the manufacturer, if applicable.

Merchants must, upon request, verbally inform you of how to find out about the contents of this warranty.
