Limited Powertrain Warranties: What They Cover and Why They’re Good
Warranties are excellent. They’re a promise to a customer that the product they spent money on will work. And if the product doesn’t work, then the customer will get a replacement. When it comes to something as expensive as a car, that’s incredibly reassuring. However, the wording can be confusing.
Here’s what a limited powertrain warranties covers.
Limited Powertrain Warranty
The powertrain is made of up of three parts: the engine, the transmission, and the drivetrain (FWD, AWD, etc.). A limited powertrain warranty is the agreement that a manufacturer or seller will replace specific parts related to any of those three systems for a certain amount of time or miles. As you may have noticed, though, it says “limited powertrain warranty,” not “all-inclusive powertrain warranty.” So, the question is which parts are actually covered? That depends on the manufacturer and/or seller offering the warranty.
