THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BUMPER TO BUMPER AND POWERTRAIN WARRANTIES FROM BOCH MASERATI
Purchasing a new or used vehicle can be excited but ensuring the vehicle lasts is always on the mind of purchasers in Norwood, MA. Depending on the dealership and age of the vehicle you will be purchasing, you may be given the option of either a powertrain warranty or bumper to bumper warranty.
A warranty that covers the powertrain is the components of the vehicle’s major mechanical systems such as the engine, transmission, and other major vehicle functions. A better way to understand a powertrain warranty is to have coverage under the hood. These specific items such as the battery, brakes, clutch are all examples of wear items and won’t be covered under a powertrain warranty.
A bumper-to-bumper warranty has the most coverage such as from the front of the bumper to the rear bumper. Bumper-to-bumper warranties are usually recommended with new vehicles. There are certain aspects of a bumper-to-bumper warranty that are not covered such as the air conditioning system, suspension system, and the vehicle’s electronics.
