What is the Difference Between a Powertrain Warranty and a Bumper-To-Bumper Warranty?

When you purchase a new vehicle the moving parts, and the electronics are under a factory warranty for a specified amount of time. Some items, such as your audio may be under a separate warranty by the manufacturer of the system for a set amount of time as well. The Powertrain warranty and the Bumper-to-bumper warranties are a separate purchase by the car owner to take over coverage after the factory warranties have expired.

Powertrain warranties cover only moving propulsion parts such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and axles. Most of these warranties cover the labor charge of replacing the parts as well as the parts themselves. The Bumper-to-Bumper warranty covers what the powertrain warranty covers with the addition of the car's electronics such as the alternator, the lighting system, and the air-conditioning.
