Learn About a Manufacturer Warranty From Top to Bottom
A manufacturer warranty has a few different names. You may know it as a limited warranty, as opposed to the extended, which you have to pay for. Another term is a factory warranty, typically used for cars. What they all have in common is the fact that they come with the product, car, or home. The manufacturer is giving a promise with this warranty that the product will work for its intended purpose.
We’ll go over the manufacturer warranty coverage and the best way to file a warranty claim if your purchased product doesn’t work.
What Is a Manufacturer Warranty?
A manufacturer warranty exists to protect the consumer or user. It is a guarantee that if a product fails within the warranty period, the manufacturer must repair or replace it free of charge.
What Does a Manufacturer Warranty Cover?
Not every manufacturer's warranty is the same. It depends on the manufacturer and on the product itself. For example, a warranty period for a car is typically three years, but for a TV, it’s one year.

What Is a Factory Warranty on a Car?
A manufacturer or factory warranty on a car lasts much longer than other purchases. Car repairs can be a nightmare, so you should understand a car's factory warranty and know what you’re getting yourself into.
New cars usually have a three-year or 60,000-mile warranty. While more and more car vendors have longer factory warranties, ranging from five to seven years, others offer extended warranties, even for used cars.
