People buy a new car with the intention, in part, of avoiding mechanical problems sometimes possible with used vehicles. However, troubles may arise that comes as a surprise to the buyer. In some cases, the manufacturer covers repairs under the warranty agreement. Two different warranties may help buyers, the powertrain and bumper-to-bumper coverages. Is there much of a difference between the two?

A bumper-to-bumper warranty covers virtually everything associated with the vehicle. Such warranties only last for a limited time. Regardless, the warranty helps provide financial coverage and peace of mind for new buyers.

A powertrain warranty covers those important mechanical components that help power the vehicle. Buyers expect the transmission to last a long time, so it is no surprise that transmission work receives coverage under such a warranty. So is the engine and more.
