Transfer of Factory Warranty

Long time lurker, first time poster. When purchasing a Pcar from a private party and there is remaining factory warranty, how does one go about transfering the warranty to the new owner?

The factory warranty is for the car, not the owner, so there is nothing to do. Be aware that there are modifications that an owner could do that could void the factory warranty, so be sure to get a PPI (pre-purchase inspection) by a qualified mechanic to hopefully identify any suspect issues.

No need to do anything. When you go to the service department they will input the VIN number of the car. That will give them the original in-service date of the car. Combine that with the mileage and model year of the car and the service department knows if the car is under warranty or not. For 987 models the warranty is 4 years/50k miles.
