Powertrain Warranty vs. Bumper-to-Bumper: What's the Difference?

Can you tell the difference between these two warranties? Most dealerships will include a powertrain warranty with used car purchases. Powertrain warranties cover the engine and transmission. These are the most expensive parts of the vehicle, so it's important that these are covered. Powertrain warranties typically last over 12 months and may include replacement and repair. You should check the warranty before signing to make sure that you are covered.

Bumper-to-bumper warranties cover everything between the bumpers and what's inside of the vehicle. Typically, this means the AC system, audio, electrical, and differentials, but you could get more or less coverage depending on the dealership. These warranties typically do not last as long, about 90 days at most. If you are in need of more comprehensive coverage, you can always ask to up to the duration of the warranty, but you may have to pay an additional fee.
