I'm looking at buying a used car --would you recommend buying a used fleet vehicle? I found online a a low mileage factory warranty active close to my price range, and it checks out as a former corporate fleet vehicle. Thanks
My 2001 Pontiac Bonneville that I bought used when it was less than 1 year old and that is still covered by the extended warranty has been in the shop more than it's out. I'm convinced it's not the car (for verifiable reasons too long to list here) but the mechanics at the dealership. When my boyfriend gets involved, problems are solved. When I try to deal ...

I just bought this car and would like to know if this would be covered ...
My 1997 Ford Crown Vic has 210K miles. In the past 6 months I put $2K in repairs into it (shocks, brakes, tires) Now the trans is acting up - stays too long in 1st gear before shifting. My mechanic says a Jasper rebuilt trans(75K/3yr warranty) will cost $2900 which is about $500 more than even Jasper says the total job should cost. A local rebuilder ...
Hi I just purchased a certified used 2004 Honda Accord Coupe back in March. At the time of purchase I also purchased an extended warranty called "Honda Care" for $1,590 for 7 yrs. or 100K miles coverage on replacement of major parts such as Transmission, A/C, electrical malfunctions,etc. The coverage is not for regular wear and tear but malfunctions of ...
