New car warranty comparison: What do you get from every manufacturer?

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) defines manufacturer warranties as "voluntary promises offered by the manufacturer about what they will do if something goes wrong with a new car". "Manufacturer warranties apply for a specified time and may add to consumers’ automatic rights under the Australian Consumer Law guarantees," the ACCC explains. "Manufacturer warranties come with conditions that limit the coverage and what consumers can claim for."
