Bumper-to-Bumper vs Extended Warranties

If you would like long-term protection that surpasses the factory-issued manufacturer’s warranty, then an Extended Warranty is a popular type of service contract that provides just that. Extended Vehicle Warranties are commonly obtainable in two different formats, Bumper-to-Bumper and Powertrain. Only the transmission and engine is commonly covered in a Powertrain Warranty. While “Bumper-to-Bumper” Coverage might cover virtually every part of your car (some exceptions apply). Service due to careless choices and wear items like tires, brake pads, air filters, or engine oil normally won’t be covered by Extended Auto Warranties. Extras like Travel Interruption Reimbursement, free satellite radio trial period, Rental Car Reimbursement, and even Roadside Assistance might even be part of your Extended Warranty, depending on the warranty you purchase.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Extended Vehicle Warranties

The pragmatic reason to get an Extended Warranty is to save money on repairs. Without an Extended Auto Warranty, if your transmission system fails you could be on-the-hook for a sizable repair. The same repair bill may only call for a small payment to be made, if you have a Powertrain Extended Warranty. The Extended Vehicle Warranty would handle the remaining balance provided the issue and parts are part of the contract. If you trade-in your vehicles a lot an Extended Warranty will still be valuable but someone that keeps a vehicle for an extended period will see the best reward. Even the most reliable cars can have components fail, due the years and miles. An Auto Warranty can ease the anxiety of vehicle ownership.

Custom-Made to Fit Your Needs

An Auto Warranty allows you to decide the warranty length for your vehicle. Standard factory warranties often have a longer powertrain warranty and a shorter bumper-to-bumper extended warranty. By choosing an extended warranty you could prolong the bumper-to-bumper warranty to parallel the powertrain warranty and have the best possible coverage for your vehicle. Our service professionals can help comb through the plans and choose the one that’s best for you.
