Vehicle Warranties

The Bumper to Bumper Warranties is the most comprehensive portion of a vehicle manufacturer's Factory Guaranty, that covers all parts and systems, except for those specifically excluded ,eg certain "wear" items like tires and wiper blades. Typically, bumper-to-bumper warranties cover everything from major mechanical repairs to even some apparently minor details.

Basically all new autos come with bumper-to-bumper warranties. Those guaranties are for a fixed term , for example 3 years or 36,000 miles. That guaranty will expire whenever the first threshold is met. A two year old vehicle with 40,000 miles on it which is covered by the three year / 36,000 mile warranty will be out of guaranty. By the same token, a four year old vehicle with only 25,000 miles will be out of guaranty. Warranty terms are often a selling feature promoted by car manufacturers. For instance, on some new cars, you might find five year / Fifty thousand mile guaranties, or perhaps 10 year / 100,000 mile guaranties. New automobile consumers are known to go shopping for cars based mostly on guaranties.

By name at least, the bumper-to-bumper car warranty provides complete and exhaustive coverage for your new automobile. You might think that a bumper-to-bumper guaranty will cover every last feature and condition on the vehicle. However alas, likely it won't. Bumper-to-bumper does not include each square inch of a car from one bumper to the other. Bumper-to-bumper warranties are generally known as exclusionary in their coverage. This suggests they supply coverage for all breakdowns except components specifically itemized in the guaranty. These guaranties generally cover elements like air-conditioning, car sensors, fuel systems, drive-trains, and major electrical parts. Simultaneously, a bumper-to-bumper guaranty may in particular exclude from coverage such issues as scheduled maintenance, adjustments, and wear items ; batteries and trim ; after-market equipment ; noises, including rattles, squeaks and wind noise ; body damage ; and various varied items , such as satellite / GPS / video systems, emissions, CD changers and audio systems, and a breakdown due to crash, fire, theft, freezing, overheating, electric fire or disintegration, vandalism, flood, and any hazard insurable under standard damage insurance coverage. In the sense that these policies are exclusionary, most commonly, if you don't see a condition excluded, it's covered.

Automobile makers may also include numerous convenience features ,eg roadside help, hotel stays, rental vehicle, towing, and nationwide coverage. These features are typically called a "peace of mind" assurance.

Bumper-to-bumper warranties provide a treasure house of protection against auto repair bills. As noted, not every single possible issue with a vehicle will be covered by the guaranty, but many are. They're a cool feature of the new car. For the protection of the purchaser , however, guaranties must be read and monitored closely. Exclusions exist, and could lead on to dear, surprising repair bills which are the responsibility of the auto owner.
