Did you know?

Many major auto manufacturers provide bumper-to-bumper factory warranties that expire once a car is three years old or exceeds 36,000 miles, and such milestones are important figures for preowned vehicle shoppers to consider before buying their next preowned vehicle. When buying a car that's more than three years old or one that has close to or more than 36,000 miles on its odometer, prospective buyers should ask for the vehicle's maintenance records before making a purchase. Since many vehicles need their first significant servicing somewhere around 40,000 miles, it's important for preowned vehicle buyers to know what they're buying and just how soon they might be on the hook for repairs after buying a vehicle. Buyers should avoid purchasing any vehicles with suspect maintenance histories and may even be able to cite anticipated maintenance when negotiating the price of the vehicle.
