A vehicle’s warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer’s lot, and it’s important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission.
