Powertrain vs. Bumper-to-Bumper: How to Get the Best Warranty

New vehicles always come with some kind of warranty, but how do you know if you're getting a good deal on one? The dealership should provide you with a list of what's covered in each warranty. Since dealerships change what bumper-to-bumper warrant is, you also want to make sure that it's worth the cost to have the warranty. With new and pre-owned vehicles, a warranty is a good idea to protect against manufacturer defects and lemon vehicles.

Powertrain warranties cover the engine and transmission. These are essential components and should be included with your vehicle with a coverage limit of 60,000 miles at the very least. Bumper-to-bumper warranties do not have as much coverage. These warranties typically only last for the first 36,000 miles.

When you purchase a new vehicle, you should talk to your salesperson about the differences in each warranty and read over the fine print. You can get a great deal on a new vehicle at Bayside Chrysler Dodge Jeep located in D'Iberville with transparent pricing and warranties.
