If a car dealership goes out of business, who is liable for an existing warranty?

Asked on 11 August 2017 by Tom Hughs

If it's a new car under manufacturer warranty, then the manufacturer warranty still stands. If it's a used car under an independently insured warranty, then one of the conditions might depend on the dealer remaining in business. Read the terms and conditions very carefully.
