Have A Basic Understanding Of Powertrain Warranties VS Bumper To Bumper Warranties

When you go to pick out your next vehicle, one thing that is sure to come up is the warranty that comes with the car you choose. This is a very important thing to consider because it can really impact your pocketbook in the future. That is why it is a good idea to have a basic understanding of some of the terms used in automotive warranties.

The two most common warranties that are offered typically are bumper to bumper warranties and powertrain warranties. Bumper to bumper are by far the most expansive warranty that you can have. Aside from a few possible exemptions that your dealer will have to explain to you, they generally will cover everything on the vehicle for a designated period of time.

Powertrain warranties are normally for anything that generates power or adds to forward motion of the vehicle. This will include things like your engine, transmission, and driveline. This is still a nice warranty to have since these are normally going to be the most expensive repairs on a vehicle.
