The Differences Between a Powertrain Warranty and a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty

The two major warranty options offered for most vehicles are a powertrain warranty or a bumper-to-bumper warranty. Learn more about the differences between these two warranties so that you will know which option is best for you on your next vehicle.

First of all, a powertrain warranty covers the parts of the propulsion system, but this does not include everything beneath the hood, such as the battery and certain belts. Parts that are expected to wear down over time from regular driving are typically not covered by this warranty. On the other hand, the bumper-to-bumper warranty covers everything that the powertrain warranty does as well as all major components from the front to the rear of the car. It typically does not stay in effect as long as a powertrain warranty and is typically offered on new vehicles.
