The Difference Between Powertrain Warranties And Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties

The next vehicle you buy will probably come with one of two warranties. It will most likely be either a powertrain warranty or a bumper-to-warranty. We at i.g. Burton & Co. Inc. have provided you with a quick explanation to understand how these warranties differ from each other.

Powertrain warranties cover what are known as powertrain components under its guarantee. This includes the vehicle's most expensive components such as the engine, transmission system, and differentials. It can also cover driveshafts and constant velocity joints. The powertrain warranty is the most common warranty you will find when shopping for a new car. Belts, batteries, and clutches are excluded from this warranty because they are considered items that are subject to wear and tear.

Bumper-to-bumper warranties are much more comprehensive than powertrain warranties. They will cover everything covered under a powertrain warranty and more. The air conditioning system, audio system, electronic system, and suspension will all be covered. Things such as glass, the actual bumpers, and interior trims are usually not covered under bumper-to-bumper warranties.
