"So, its true that I can get a good warranty on a used car?"<br><br>Yes, and the price is negotiable - just like the car, it's a profit item for the dealer. Last time I bought a warranty on a used car was in Canada - it was about $900 for a 3 year warranty on a 3 year old car - never used it so I can't say if it was a good deal. I'm sure the same can be done here in the US - otherwise I'll have to make fun of this country. <br><br>There are many kinds of warranties available and different prices, so it might be one of the first questions you'll want to ask.<br><br>We just bought a used car here, but we didn't inquire about purchasing a warranty - had to go cheap I was unemployed. So I don't have up to date information.<br><br>
Yes you can purchase extended warranties in the US.<br><br>Example rent a car sales - Like Budget, Avis start at 800 bucks and up depending on the coverage. You can chose plans other plans but they are limited<br><br>New car sales start on the average 1,500 for bumper to bumper coverage. Banks loves it when you elect to extend coverage on their Car <--- after all the bank owns the car until you pay it off, they get all happy and sweaty when you take that extra coverage.<br><br>
Drove a diesel in the UK, averaged about 40mpg. But the advantage there is EVERY gas station has diesel fuel. In the US it seems to me that most don't. To me that limits going anywhere serious, because if you can't find a gas station with Diesel you're screwed. (Oh and a truckstop might not work since the filler nozzles tend to be larger than the filler pipe in the car!!)<br><br>Truth is a 3 edged sword.

If you're buying used, make sure to check out the car first on CarFax.com. We recently purchased a used (1979) Chevy Lumina for our son to drive to school. By using CarFax, we discovered that it was originally a Florida car, which is a good thing if you live in New England. We also discovered that it was originally a leased car for the first three years of its life, which helped to explain the low milage (75,000). <br><br>CarFax will tell you of any major accidents or thefts involving the car, as well.<br><br>That's about the only advice I can offer, considering your mind is already made up to buy something very small and economical. But my father-in-law always says, "Ya'll ain't savin' any money buying them for'en cars. When ya'll have to buy a part for it, ya pay so much for the part that ya didn't save a dime." (He's from South Carolina.)<br><br>
