What is the Difference Between a Powertrain Warranty and a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty?

When you’re ready to purchase your new or certified used vehicle, one of the things you will need to consider is the warranty. There will probably be several offered to you, but the two most inclusive ones are the powertrain and the bumper-to-bumper warranties. Knowing a little about them beforehand will provide you with a smoother experience.

A powertrain warranty covers the moving parts that allow the vehicle to move forward or backward. An example of the oiled parts included is the drive shaft, wheel bearings, transmission, and engine. Normal wear parts that are not included would be the fluids, clutch, and battery, for example. They are considered those parts that wear normally in the course of operation.

By contrast, a bumper-to-bumper warranty will include what the powertrain does plus most everything else that involves the running of your vehicle. It does not include the actual body parts, however. The electrical system is an example of additionally included items. The powertrain allows you more time to use it than the bumper-to-bumper, so bear that in mind.
