There are so many different brands and models of vehicles these days it’s hard to keep track of them all. Do you have a favorite? Many people prefer to buy from one manufacturer and just stick with it. It could be a Japanese automaker, like Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Subaru, or Nissan.
Others like American made vehicles from GM, Ford, or Chrysler. Maybe you like the German automakers like BMW, Audi, or Mercedes. With so many cars to choose from, your options are endless. So, which models do you think are the hottest right now?
According to Cox Automotive, based on the most recent sales data the most popular automakers are Toyota, GM, and Hyundai/Kia. All these manufactures, and many others make quality vehicles. However, not every manufacture offers the same warranty. In fact, not all “bumper-to-bumper” warranties are the same.
How Much Does a B2B Warranty Really Cover?
You’ve probably heard the phrase “bumper-to-bumper warranty” if you’ve ever been in the market for a vehicle from a dealer. It’s a common phrase and it would make you think the warranty covers your entire vehicle. However, that’s not really the case. You have to read the fine print. Most often, the warrant does not include tires, brake drums and pads, wipers, or accident damage.
Additionally, some bumper-to-bumper warranties are automatic. But in other instances, you have to pay extra to add it. So, who offers the best warranty? Here are the top five manufacturer warranties according to cars.com:
- Hyundai: 5-year/60,000-mile limited warranty, 10-year/100,000 powertrain
- Mitsubishi 5-year/60,000-mile limited warranty, 10-year/100,000 powertrain
- Kia: 5-year/60,000-mile limited warranty, 10-year/100,000 powertrain
- Jaguar: 5-year/60,000-mile for bumper-to-bumper, powertrain and roadside assistance.
- Infiniti: 4-year/60,000-mile for bumper-to-bumper, six year/ 70,000-mile for powertrain

As for bumper-to-bumper warranties, Hyundai, also has a lot to offer. The carmaker has a 10-year/100,000-mile plan that covers more than 1500 parts and comes with 24/7 roadside assistance.
Are Third-Party Warranties Good?
There is another option for bumper-to-bumper warranties. You can purchase a plan from a third-party provider, like CARCHEX, for example. These warranties usually offer more extensive and even longer coverage than the manufacturers. You can also choose from various different levels and types of coverage so you can find the best plan for you. If you’re interested in going this route, just do some research online to find the right fit and company for you.
