At Select Automotive, drivers will often come in and ask us whether they should get a vehicle with a powertrain warranty or a bumper-to-bumper one. In most cases, a bumper-to-bumper extended warranty literally covers everything attached to your vehicle. This makes it attractive to those who want to ensure they have a complete safety net that covers everything on their car.

On the other hand, these are sometimes sold at a fair bit of expense to drivers from the manufacturer. If a new car comes with one, then this is a great deal. Otherwise, you might want to look into a powertrain warranty since this covers the engine and all of your vehicle's other major moving parts.

Say you're driving down the road in Virginia Beach and suffer a breakdown. Both warranties are going to cover the transmission and the engine. Keep in mind that these are the least likely parts to break, so a bumper-to-bumper warranty will keep you moving longer if you don't mind the extra expense.
