Powertrain or Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty: What's Better?

Buying a car is an exciting experience. You get to test drive your favorites, pick out the color you like, and drive home in a new vehicle. However, when you sit down with the sales manager, you want to make sure that your car is protected by a warranty. There are a number of warranties out there, and they are not all created equal.

A powertrain warranty covers the engine and transmission, which are the core components to making your vehicle run. This is best for used vehicles. Typically, a powertrain warranty runs up to 60,000 miles or 10 years. However, it doesn't cover some of the other parts of your vehicle that are also important. These are mostly covered under a bumper-to-bumper warranty.

A bumper-to-bumper warranty covers everything in your car from the electrical system to the audio system to the driveshaft. These warranties typically only last up to 36,00 miles. However, every dealership has their own warranty language. You should check out the warranties at BMW of Rochester Hills located in Shelby Township to get the best deal.
