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

Many people who are in the market to buy a new vehicle often get confused about the difference between the powertrain warranty and bumper-to-bumper warranty. Today we are going to clear up any confusion.

Under the powertrain warranty, various components of the car's propulsion system, like the engine and transmission, are covered. Basically, anything bringing power to the car's wheels, including driveshaft and velocity joints, are covered.

Under the bumper-to-bumper warranty, otherwise known as the comprehensive warranty, everything from front bumper to back bumper is covered. This type of warranty might also include electronics, stereo system, air-conditioning system, suspension, and electric seats. Basically, everything except the two bumpers is included in the warranty. This warranty doesn't include things that lose their luster from daily wear like seat fabric, car interior trim, or the glass.
