Guide to Certified Used-Car Programs

Learn about warranties and roadside aid for your vehicle

Last updated: May 2014

The used-car certification programs offered by auto manufacturers can vary widely. The table below summarizes key provisions. Warranty and roadside aid are given in months and miles, whichever comes first. The deductible is the fee you pay for a warranty repair. Roadside aid terms vary: Some give roadside service, others just towing or towing only for warranty-covered problems. These terms can change without notice, so be sure to double-check them before buying.
