What Is a Powertrain Warranty and What Does It Cover?
A powertrain warranty is a limited warranty provided by a vehicle manufacturer that covers certain points of your vehicle’s engine, transmission, and drivetrain. The specific components covered will vary depending on your vehicle make and model.
Your vehicle’s powertrain includes your engine and all of the mechanical components responsible for transmitting the power from the engine to your vehicle’s axle. This includes your vehicle’s engine, transmission, drive shafts, and differentials.
The components will also vary between front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive, and four-wheel-drive vehicles. Hybrids also have a number of separate components including the electric motor and battery that may be covered by your powertrain warranty.
What Is the Advantage of a Powertrain Warranty?
If any of the components listed in your powertrain warranty fail while the vehicle is covered under the powertrain warranty, the manufacturer is responsible for the repairs. That means there is no cost to you!
What Does a Powertrain Warranty Cover?
