What is the Difference Between a Powertrain Warranty and a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty?

Purchasing a new or certified used vehicle is an exciting event. It can also be a challenging one. Aside from the right automobile choice for your situation, you will most likely need to consider including either a powertrain or a bumper-to-bumper warranty. If you have a working knowledge of what each includes, it will ease some of your burdens.

A powertrain warranty usually includes all of the internal parts that are responsible for your vehicle’s movement. An example of these oiled parts includes the transmission, driveshaft, and engine. Normal wear items, of which the battery and clutch are examples are not included.

A bumper-to-bumper warranty, on the other hand, should include everything the powertrain does plus many additional items. This is essentially everything from the front to back of the vehicle, with the exception of the actual body parts. The suspension and electrical system are examples of additional items. You do have a longer time frame to use the powertrain than the bumper-to-bumper in most situations.
