A warranty is the manufacturer's way of letting the consumer know that if something goes wrong with their new car, they will be happy to fix it. This protection is why many drivers prefer to purchase new vehicles instead of used ones. This month, RIO Car Wash brings you the top 5 manufacturers that offer the best warranties to help you make your next car buying decision.

5) Mitsubishi
The maker of the Outlander and Mirage offers one of the best warranties in the business. Their comprehensive warranty runs for 5 years or 60,000 miles, while their powertrain warranty provides 10 years or 100,000 miles of coverage. To make it a little sweeter, Mitsubishi also offers 5 years of free roadside assistance with no mileage cap.

4) Kia
Kia's warranty is quite similar to that of Mitsubishi. When you purchase a Rio, Forte, or any other Kia, you will receive a 5-year / 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. Your powertrain will be covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles, and Kia will provide you with 60,000 miles of roadside assistance.

3) Hyundai
Hyundai has long been a close cousin of Kia, and their warranty policies reflect this. Hyundai offers the same 5-year / 60,000-mile comprehensive plan and 10-year / 100,000-mile plan as Kia does. However, Hyundai ranks slightly better than its cousin due to their unlimited mileage roadside assistance plan.

2) Genesis
As Hyundai's luxury brand, Genesis offers many of the same warranty features as its owner. 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection come as standard with Genesis. What sets Genesis apart from the pack is the 3 years or 36,000 miles of free maintenance that comes with every vehicle.

1) Volkswagen
For the best warranty on the market, look no further than Volkswagen. The German car manufacturer offers an impressive 6 years or 72,000 miles of comprehensive and powertrain coverage with each vehicle. That's a full year of additional bumper-to-bumper protection that you get with any other car brand.
