TODAY’S TIP: When buying a truck, be sure you understand warranty coverage in terms of time and miles. Find out if warranty work can be done at an authorized shop in the nation and whether warranties cover labor, parts, towing, down time and a replacement vehicle. Ask how warranty work is reimbursed.
