Bumper-to-Bumper and Powertrain Warranties: The Details and Differences

A bumper-to-bumper warranty and a powertrain warranty cover almost the entire vehicle, but each plan covers very different systems. The bumper-to-bumper warranty covers miscellaneous parts, like seat belts, the entertainment system, and the steering. Bumper-to-bumper literally covers items between the two bumpers.

A powertrain warranty covers the bigger components. It comprises the engine, drivetrain, and transmission. Powertrain failures can be costly. When a system breaks, the manufacturer will repair it under the warranties. Sometimes a part will simply need replacing, or something more involved may need to happen.

It is good to know what is covered and for how long under each warranty. It saves money and offers peace of mind knowing the warranties are in place. Bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties run out at different intervals, so beware of your vehicle's warranty expiration date and the mileage.
