Comparing the Differences Between Powertrain and Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties

Whether you're purchasing a new or previously owned vehicle from our Audi Southampton showroom or lot in Southampton, NY, we want you to understand the differences between the two major warranties offered, powertrain versus bumper-to-bumper.

If opting for a powertrain warranty, the components of your vehicle's propulsion system, including the transmission and engine, are covered under this warranty, along with the driveshaft, constant velocity joints, and any equipment that provides power to make the wheels move. Items designed to wear, such as the battery, clutch, drive belt and fluids, aren't covered under a powertrain warranty.

A bumper-to-bumper, or comprehensive warranty, covers everything located between the back and front bumpers other than the bumpers themselves. This type of warranty doesn't cover as much time as the powertrain warranty since it covers much more, including the audio and electronics system, your vehicle's air conditioning system and suspension components, with several wear items excluded.
