Getting A Powertrain Warranty Vs. A Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty

You have probably seen vehicles listed with both powertrain warranties and bumper-to-bumper warranties. What do they mean and what is covered under them? We explain below.

A powertrain warranty is a more basic warranty. It is often found in certified pre-owned vehicles. Items that are often covered under a powertrain warranty include the engine, transmission system and differential. A vehicle's driveshaft and constant velocity joints are also often included in this type of warranty. The powertrain warranty can be thought of a warranty that will ensure your vehicle can move on the road for a set period of time.

The bumper-bumper warranty is also known as a comprehensive warranty. It is called a bumper-to-bumper warranty because it covers all major components front the front bumper to the back. This includes things such as the A/C system, audio system, suspension system and more. Interestingly, the actual bumpers are not covered under this warranty. This comprehensive warranty often lasts for a short period of time and is often included in new vehicle purchases.
