How impacting the warranty is can be understood by looking at the figures of sales in the new and used car markets. The warranty gives the assurance that the car will function smoothly without any trouble during the warranty period. Even if there is any fault detected, which can happen even in the best cars, it will be corrected by the manufacturer free of cost.
