Warranties that are still valid can be transferred.
Your car might still be covered by:
You do not need to prove that the car was properly maintained by its former owner to benefit from these warranties.
To transfer the warranties to your name, contact a dealer. Inform the dealer that you are the vehicle's new owner or leaser. Also remember to:
- request the owner's manual if it was not given to you;
- check whether there are recalls or extended warranties on the vehicle.
Thanks to a partnership with the Société québécoise d’information juridique (SOQUIJ), the Office publishes summaries of the most recent judgments that deal with legal warranties, in particular those rendered by the small claims court. These summaries may be used to help support your efforts in asserting your rights with a private vendor.
