If you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned vehicle, you may have questions about the different warranties that are available. We here at Luxury Motors of Rehoboth Beach in Rehoboth Beach, DE have the answers that you need, and we’re glad to furnish the following information on the two most popular types of warranties that you may be offered as part of the buying process.

A bumper-to-bumper warranty protects the buyer from a wide variety of mechanical mishaps related to the operation of the vehicle. As the name suggests, it covers almost every automotive system, and coverage terms generally range from one to three years.

A powertrain warranty specifically covers only the main powertrain components. Under a powertrain warranty, the engine, transmission, and drivetrain are eligible for repair or replacement in the event of untimely failure. Because of the limited scope of coverage, powertrain warranties generally extend from between three and ten years in duration.
