Now that we have touched on exactly what kind of warranty a bumper-to-bumper is, let’s go ahead and explore the powertrain or sometimes called the drivetrain warranty. This particular warranty actually only covers what makes the car moves. What that includes is going to be the drive axles, the engine itself and of course the transmission. While those are all expensive, things like the hoses and belts are not covered.
This is definitely a warranty that is a little on the rough side and it is definitely one that is important and certainly one that is worth the research on it. However, if are looking for a car warranty that covers everything – bumper-to-bumper, you want to make sure that you get the last warranty we discussed.
In the next blog, we will talk about roadside assistance because that is covered in some warranties.
Whenever you are dealing with coverage, it can be difficult to determine exactly what you have covered and what is not covered, especially when it comes to the warranty. Well, I can tell you for sure that if you are buying a new car, you are going to have the brand new car warranty to over any issues that you might have, but what are the differences between the warranties?
That is what we are going to cover in the next few blogs and we are also going to touch on roadside assistance. Basic auto warranties are pretty simple to understand and they actually cover everything on the car – minus the oil, tires and brakes. Things that wear out are generally not covered.
Typically, the warranty lasts about two years or about 24,000 miles, which is pretty typical unless you purchase yourself an extended warranty.
