“Should I get a warranty for this Ford?” Maybe you are asking yourself that question after finally settling on that used Ford car with essentially everything you want. Getting a warranty is going to cost a little extra, of course, but is it worthwhile?
Whether you live in any of Ontario’s prosperous cities like Mississauga or Toronto, every Ford vehicle comes with a warranty. Ford has a long history with the country, so it provides warranties as a sign of its continuing commitment. Like all warranties, though, they only last for a period. Afterwards, it becomes a question whether to get another one.
If you are like some people, you usually get a warranty because you never know what can happen. A warranty typically protects a consumer like you against certain things though that depends on what is detailed in the warranty itself. On the other hand, there are certain reasons why getting a warranty for your used car might be a good idea nonetheless.
Many folks oddly believe that used cars do not have available warranties, but that is not necessarily true. With the more recent used cars having better quality today, their manufacturers also put in better warranties that last longer than the usual 36 months. These warranties commonly include items like extended length, tires, rust protection, and bumper to bumper. They also cover roadside assistance, airbags, batteries and seatbelts, even if it is a Ford in Mississauga.
In Canada, Ford’s car warranties have periods for 3 years or 80,000 kilometers, 4 years or 80,000 above, 5 years or 60,000 onwards, 6 years or 60,000 above, and 7 years or 60,000 above as well. If you buy a three-year old Ford Mississauga dealerships offer that has a five-year warranty, it still has some left in it. You can then look at the extended warranty of your dealership to add longer coverage.
All in all, getting an extended warranty for any Mississauga used cars you are considering depends on its existing one, if any, and the kind of warranty the dealership may provide. Study your options carefully, and you can better decide whether or not to get a warranty for that Ford. Read more about warranties on Ford.ca and About.com.
