Purchasing a Used Car

When buying a used car, you can purchase the vehicle on an as-is basis or with a warranty. Remember that the Missouri Lemon Law does not apply to used vehicles.
When purchasing from a dealer the Federal Trade Commission requires a dealer to display a buyer’s guide in the window of each used car offered for today. A buyer’s guide needs to give basic information about the car and state whether a warranty is included or not.
Missouri does not require a used car to be sold with a warranty. You are responsible for any requires on an as-is vehicle. Make sure you have a mechanic inspect the vehicle before buying any used car.
If a dealer offers a warranty, you need to speak with them to determine what is covered and what is not. Make sure you get a thorough explanation of the warranty in writing from the dealer. Also, ask if the car includes any original warranty from the manufacturer.
