What is a Powertrain Warranty vs. a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty?

Car dealerships will offer you different warranties, including a maintenance package in some cases. However, what do these warranties actually do to protect your car? A powertrain warranty will protect the engine and transmission. Typically, these warranties have terms up to 60,000 miles, but each warranty is different. You should be able to read through the warranty and see what it's covering as well.

Bumper-to-bumper warranties cover everything else, including the audio system, air conditioning, electrical system, driveshaft, and other essential components. However, bumper-to-bumper is more of an industry term and may not include all of the components in a typical warranty. You should get specific terms before signing anything.
