powertrain is 50k
Bumper to bumper is 36k.
If you happen to live in CA and bought one with Pzev you have 150k on the emissions related components

Google is your friend.
2004-2006 4YR/50K B2B; 4YR/50K powertrain
2007-now 3YR/36K B2B; 5YR/60K powertrain

So now we have shorter B2B and longer powertrain.

Since the engine and tranny are the most expensive components of a car and have the most moving parts, I think it's best to have a longer warranty on them. Of course, it would be nice to have everything covered, but you play the hand you're dealt.

I got a 7 year 100k mile warranty on drivetrain, think it cost me a bit more but peace of mind if something comes up. Better safe than sorry. I drive a 2015

Chances are the expected value of an extended warranty is much less than the price. Buy insurance to cover potential catastrophes Some people think $2,000 is a catastrophe, so they pay $1,000 for an extended warranty. My advise: Spend a little less on the new car, keep the difference plus the price of an extended warranty for catastrophes. You'll save money in the long run.
