Background on Vehicle Warranty Choices

It is likely that a manufacturer will provide either one or a combination of these two major vehicle warranty categories, a powertrain warranty or a bumper-to-bumper warranty. Understanding some basic differences between these popular warranties will help you figure out what repairs might be covered for your car.

With a powertrain warranty, you can expect coverage for the repair or replacement of major parts of the propulsion system. This is basically what makes your wheels turn. This does not include engine fluids or brakes because they are generally expected to wear down with normal driving. On the other hand, a bumper-to-bumper warranty includes many more major parts because it deals with components from the front to the rear of the vehicle. Likewise, it does not cover parts that are supposed to wear down with normal driving.
