What Does Bumper-To-Bumper Warranty Mean?

This kind of warranty basically means that the car being sold to you is completely insured, from the front to the back bumper. While some warranties only cover the engine, drive line, and transmission, the bumper-to-bumper type includes coverage for the alternator and starter.

A bumper-to-bumper warranty is as comprehensive as it gets for your car. It’s now the ideal industry standard, and you should only buy a car that comes with this, whether new or pre-owned. Getting it relieves customers of worries that come with heavy mechanical repairs, as well as offers the owner regular maintenance help and even road assistance. Simpler unforeseen issues such as squeaking and rattling are part of the coverage, too. And often, even electronic parts and various computer-powered equipment.

Of course, damage incurred by cars due to owner negligence and abuse is excluded. While this warranty is a must, it shouldn’t make people lazy about the basics of car-cleaning and other basic upkeep needs. Those not covered by the insurance are the wear-and-tear of tires, rust accumulation, bulb replacements, and break plates.
