The AutoMax Fine Print Warranty
A big reason car-shoppers choose new vehicles is the peace of mind that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty.  But it’s buyer-beware when choosing an after-market warranty. Not all warranties are created equal, and unsuspecting buyers can find out – too late — that many repairs or automotive systems are exempt from coverage.

Real People Help You Find Real Solutions

AutoMax’s No Fine Print Warranty sets us apart in the used vehicle marketplace.  We provide no-hassle, peace of mind protection for our customers.

What you’ve really purchased is a familiar face, ready to help you find a solution, should your car break down. There are no impersonal, recorded messages, no 800 numbers to dial, and no out-of-town insurance adjusters to deal with. Instead, the company manager, who has a vested interest in your well-being, is there to make things right, even if the call comes during the third period of the Olympic men’s hockey gold medal playoffs!

No-Hassle, Peace of Mind

AutoMax is the only dealer in Sarnia-Lambton authorized by OMVIC (Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council) to have its own, personally-backed warranty available for every certified car we sell. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum packages are available, with pricing to suit your needs.

Simply put, there is no other used car dealership in the county that offers a warranty as comprehensive as ours. In fact, AutoMax’s warranty is even more comprehensive than the 3 year/60K warranty offered on any new car!

There’s NO Fine Print! See for yourself:
