Should I expect the used car I'm buying to have a warranty?

Agency: State

No. Don't assume a used vehicle has a manufacturer's or dealer's warranty. Most used vehicles are not under warranty for any period of time. Any vehicle sold "as is" carries no warranty. You must pay for any repairs on a vehicle not covered by a warranty.

If the seller promises to make repairs to get you to buy a vehicle, make sure you get the promise in writing.
