What are Powertrain and Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties?

When you purchase a vehicle, you don't want to deal with any manufacturer or other defects. Problems can happen since vehicle, like other machines, may experience unexpected issues with parts. A powertrain or bumper-to-bumper warranty could pay for the repair work. What is the difference between these two warranties?

A powertrain warranty is commonplace with new and certified pre-owned vehicles. The warranty covers the engine, transmission, and other "power-oriented" components to the vehicle. The warranty makes sense. Who wants to be forced to pay for a new transmission after only driving the car for 15,000 miles?

Bumper-to-bumper covers virtually everything else. Various parts and, possibly, the radio and other electronic components might fall under the warranty. A bumper-to-bumper warranty may come from a third party or purchased as an add-on from the dealer.
