A Powertrain Warranty vs a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty

Here at Luxury Motors of Rehoboth Beach, we strive to provide our Rehoboth Beach, DE consumers with useful information. Are you looking for a new vehicle? If so, you may be asked if you want to purchase a powertrain or bumper-to-bumper warranty. Below you can find out the differences between them and decide which one works best for you.

With a powertrain warranty, the vehicle's engine, transmission, and drivetrain are covered. The components of the engine, which include the crankshaft, timing belt, and valves, are covered. Although powertrain warranties only cover the powertrain components of a vehicle, they usually last longer than bumper-to-bumper warranties.

A bumper-to-bumper warranty is a more comprehensive type of coverage that includes most equipment between the front bumper and back bumper, but these warranties do not cover the bumpers themselves because they are body panels. Other wearable items, such as seating upholstery, cabin surfaces, and interior trim, are not usually covered in bumper-to-bumper warranties.
