Powertrain Warranty vs. Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty

When you go to buy a new car, part of the fun is learning about different features included with your car. You should always ask what warranty is included with your purchase. Used cars should be covered by a couple of different warranties, including the powertrain and bumper-to-bumper warranties. Both are important to ensuring that you don't have to pay out of pocket for expenses that are not your fault.

Powertrain warranties cover the engine and transmission. These parts are known be more expensive to replace, which is why dealerships tend to cover these parts the most. These warranties typically last over 12 months. With a bumper-to-bumper warranty, you may get coverage for 90 days. What's included in the bumper-to-bumper warranty typically depends on the dealership, so you should ask what's included and look at the paperwork before signing anything.
