Defining the Differences Between Powertrain and Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties


When you purchase a vehicle in Shrewsbury, you'll hear many terms that you may not be familiar with. Among the terms you're likely to hear are "powertrain warranty" and "bumper-to-bumper warranty." We at Wagner Kia of Shrewsbury want to make sure you're able to make an informed decision regarding your vehicle's warranties, which is why we offer this basic explanation of the differences between the two types.

Bumper-to-bumper warranties serve as a "catch-all" warranty, covering most of the components on your vehicle. With a few exceptions, bumper-to-bumper warranties help you repair or replace components on your vehicle that fail prematurely due to a manufacturing default. Powertrain warranties, on the other hand, cover those components specifically related to providing power to your vehicle, including the transmission and gears. Since these warranties don't cover as much, they tend to cover a longer period.

If you're interested in learning more about warranties or any other part of the car buying process, don't hesitate to reach out to our dealership.
