What Is the Difference Between a Powertrain Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties?

When you are thinking about purchasing a new or certified pre-owned vehicle, you probably are wondering what types of warranties are offered. The two most common types are bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties, which are the most important ones because they cover most of the components of the vehicle.

Items like the propulsion system, transmission, engine and other related parts are included in a powertrain warranty. Any parts that have to do with delivering power to the wheels are also covered, such as the driveshaft and the joints. Items that are meant to be replaced, like the battery and some of the belts, are not included. A bumper-to-bumper warranty is a comprehensive warranty that provides coverage for most of the vehicle from front to back, with the exception of the bumpers and certain interior fabrics and trims.
