When you are out looking at a new or a used vehicle, you have probably noticed that most vehicles come with a powertrain warranty, a bumper-to-bumper warranty or both. What do these different types of warranties cover, and what does that mean to you?
A powertrain warranty covers the items that make a car travel down the road. For instance, the engine, transmission, drive train and water pump are covered by a powertrain warranty. A bumper-to-bumper warranty covers virtually everything on the vehicle except wear and tear items, such as wiper blades, belts and filters, and maintenance items. Powertrain warranties tend to last longer than bumper-to-bumper warranties. Many powertrain warranties last for up to 100,000 miles.
