When dealers ask if want a warranty on a used vehicle should one take or it is
a scam

1 Answer


Normally those are just a waste of money cause they only offer it on vehicles under 100K miles, so of those vehicles have had any kind of normal maintenance you won't be using the warranty. However I bought a truck 2 months ago and something just told me to buy the warranty and not just the normal package, and sure enough the transfer case went bad, just got it back. Then back in 2000 I bought a Tahoe and there was that little voice, so I bought the warranty, sure enough the fuel pump went out had to have it towed to get replaced, then almost a year later went in for service and the Tech found a coolant leak coming out of both heads, when they tore it down they found cracked heads, the warranty tried to say it had been overheated but there was no evidence of it so they spring for a set of heads. after that no more problems. So listen to that little voice.
