How do I check if my car has a warranty?

How do I know if my car is still under warranty? I just bought a car from a private seller. He said the warranty was transferable but I'm not so sure.

“Good news—car warranties are usually tied to the vehicle identification number (VIN) and therefore are transferable. If you have the VIN handy, you can call your local dealership to see if your car is still covered.
If that doesn’t work, you can look up your Carfax report, which should show whether the vehicle is covered by a warranty or not.
While you’re at it, ensure you’re getting a good deal on car insurance for your new ride with the Jerry app. In less than a minute, Jerry will gather competitive quotes from the top 50 insurance providers and deliver low-cost rates straight to your phone for free.”
