BUMPER TO BUMPER COVERAGE ON YOUR EXTENDED WARRANTY ?

Can you get "Bumper To Bumper" extended warranty coverage on used vehicle? Simply stated the answer is, "No"! True bumper to bumper coverage is only available from the manufacture and only on new vehicles. In fact, many auto manufacturers actually reduce the coverage for some vehicles in the last year of factory warranty. Bumper to bumper coverage, among car makers, may include slight variations; but, for the most part, they are identical. Coverage includes all the cosmetic items (seat fabric, carpeting, body moldings, paint, etc...). Basically, any item on that vehicle will be covered with the car manufacturer's "Bumper To Bumper" coverage. It now seems many Extended Warranty Companies are advertising their coverage as "Bumper To Bumper". That being said, should we not look a little more closely at these Companies who are misrepresenting what they sell?
