US Imported Vehicle Warranty

US Imported Vehicle Warranty

So the question often posed to many of our lenders who are currently importing US vehicles is “does it still have warranty”.  Unfortunately the answer is all over the board.  What I do know for sure is that if a US vehicle is imported to Canada and the warranty in the US is longer than the warranty in Canada, the vehicle is only qualifies for Canadian milage limit for coverage.  If the US miliage limit is longer, the customer can still get the warranty coverage if they take it to a US dealer.

 

That being said, I know that most manufacturers will continue to honor any remaining warranty on the vehicle but it is best to check with the individual manufacturer before bringing in a US car.  Most will require a recall clearance letter and some may require slight modifications.

The best thing to do is buy an extended warranty for your used vehicle.  It will ensure that the vehicle is covered well beyond the manufacturers original.
