Understanding Powertrain Warranty Coverage

Aug 3, 2018

Mechanic Examining CarEvery new vehicle comes with a warranty designed to protect you from the financial burden of automotive troubles, and many owners extend these warranties through convenient protection plans. But while there’s no doubt that these warranties come in handy, they can also be fairly complex and difficult to understand. Here, we’ll shed a little light on powertrain warranties, how they work and what they entail.

Manufacturer Powertrain Warranty Coverage

Whether you’re driving a Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep or Ram vehicle, you can rest assured that your new ride comes hand-in-hand with a manufacturer warranty, though the terms and conditions of the warranties change by make.

Most of these warranties, however, cover what’s known as the powertrain – a system that includes your vehicle’s engine, transmission, drive system and a range of related parts. Under your manufacturer warranty, the cost of repairs and replacement for these parts are covered by the manufacturer until you surpass a certain mileage point or amount of time. Then, the costs are on you – unless you have an extended warranty.

Extending Coverage with Mopar Protection Plans

Manufacturer warranties are designed to be relatively thorough, but if you’re seeking the most comprehensive powertrain warranty coverage, your best option is to search for an extended protection plan. For Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep and Ram vehicles, that typically means the manufacturer-backed Mopar warranties. Powertrain Care, for example, is an excellent option for a powertrain-specific protection plan. This warranty extends your manufacturer warranty, providing coverage for more than 300 components throughout all three elements of the powertrain.

But that’s not all that extended warranties offer – Powertrain Care and other Mopar protection plans all deliver a variety of additional benefits, including low-price deductibles, towing and roadside assistance coverage, trip interruption protection and much more. On top of all that, your repairs will be performed by certified dealership technicians using high-quality Mopar parts precisely designed for vehicles from the Chrysler family, helping to maximize your peace of mind when you’re on the road.
