What is the Difference Between a Powertrain Warranty and a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty?

With so many things to consider when purchasing a new or certified used vehicle, having a working knowledge of a powertrain and bumper-to-bumper warranty will benefit you. There may be other warranties that are offered to you, but these two are the most comprehensive available.

The oiled and internally moving parts that are responsible for your vehicle’s movement are considered part of the powertrain. Items such as the transmission, driveshaft, and engine would be included with this warranty. Parts that are deemed as those that wear normally, such as the clutch and battery, would be excluded.

A bumper-to-bumper is the most inclusive warranty. It will cover what the powertrain does plus many additional parts. It basically covers all parts, not including the car body. Two examples of additional parts are the electrical system and the suspension. Bear in mind that the powertrain warranty allows you more time to use it than the bumper-to-bumper.
