June 21st, 2018 by

Here at Glenbrook Chrysler Dodge Jeep®, we have a vast inventory of the best new 2018 cars, trucks, SUVs, and crossovers for sale today. We also understand that a lot goes into the car buying process, and that some of the steps can be a little hard to understand. We’re here to help.

One of the most important aspects of the car buying process is the warranty. Vehicle warranties can be complicated, and we want to give you the tools and knowledge to get peace of mind when it comes to buying a new car from us at Glenbrook Chrysler Dodge Jeep.

When it comes to new car warranties, there are a few terms you should familiarize yourself with. You’ll most commonly hear the word “limited” when it comes to new vehicle warranties. Limited warranties are often the kind of warranty that comes with a new car and specifies that your vehicle will be covered for certain things for a certain amount of time or a specific number of miles. Many new vehicles are covered under a limited warranty that lasts three years or up to 36,000 miles. Under these warranties, your car is covered against manufacturer defects not including components that need replacement every so often like the brake pads and air filters.

A powertrain warranty typically differs from a limited bumper-to-bumper warranty in that this warranty protects explicitly any breaking down of powertrain components such as the engine or the transmission.

Drivers often also get the option to purchase extended warranties. Extended warranties often extend the coverage of car components and the duration for which you are covered. Many drivers who plan to keep their car for several years will opt for extended warranties.

Be sure to speak to our friendly sales staff about which warranties we offer and what the best one is for you. For all your other vehicle needs like parts and Chrysler service, visit us today.
