Do used cars come with a warranty?

In general, yes. State laws hold dealers responsible if cars they sell don`t meet reasonable quality standards. These obligations are called implied warranties­­unspoken, unwritten promises from the seller to the buyer. However, dealers in most states can use the words as is or with all faults in a written notice to buyers to eliminate implied warranties. There is no specified time period for implied warranties.
