The question of whether or not a car accident voids the warranty is something that everybody asks when they get into an accident with a new car. This is a fear that everyone has because the warranty is an extremely valuable thing when you buy a car.
Whether or not you have to pay for replacement parts or service during the first few years that you own a vehicle can mean the difference between paying thousands of dollars and paying nothing at all. However, there are only a certain set of circumstances where a car accident can void a warranty.
For the most part, the only way that a car accident will void a warranty is
However, there are some circumstances where a warranty may be voided if the car is in an accident. This is usually only present in warranties that are offered by used car dealerships. If you are buying a used car, you want to check your warranty carefully to make sure that parts and labor are not voided if you are in an accident.
Some dealerships that sell used cars attempt to protect themselves in this way. But if you are cognizant of this and check your warranty carefully before you buy, this should not be a problem. Most of the time, getting into a vehicle accident may require that you pay for the damage, but it will not usually void a warranty.
