A powertrain warranty is an extended warranty that covers the major components of a vehicle's powertrain, including the transmission, engine, and drivetrain.
Powertrain warranties are designed to protect drivers from major mechanical failures. The standard powertrain warranties typically cover new vehicles for a certain period, such as 5 years or 60,000 miles. Manufacturer factory-back powertrain warranties can provide peace of mind to drivers worried about expensive repairs.
Some powertrain warranties may be purchased from third-party companies. Such warranties can provide extended coverage, but they often require paying upfront for repairs rather than just the deductible as with Mopar Vehicle Protection Powertrain Care Plus Plans.
Are Powertrain Warranties Beneficial?
Powertrain warranties can be beneficial for several reasons.
- They can provide peace of mind to drivers who may be worried about expensive repairs.
- Powertrain warranties can help drivers avoid paying the full cost of major drivetrain failures, instead of only the deductible you choose.
- Powertrain warranties also help drivers keep their vehicles in good condition because lower out-of-pocket expense encourages drivers to maintain their vehicle better and avoid problems down the road by fixing problems early.
- Mopar Powertrain Care Plus Plans can also be a selling point for a vehicle. Since powertrain warranties can be transferred to new owners if a vehicle is sold, this can add value to a vehicle and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
What Does A Powertrain Warranty Cover?
A powertrain warranty typically covers the major components of the drivetrain -- including the engine, transmission, front/rear axles and driveshaft. However, coverage varies from one service warranty to another as some powertrain warranties may also cover other components.
Mopar's powertrain extended warranty goes even further by covering steering and air conditioning components as well. So, if you have a Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM, Fiat or Alfa Romeo, Ziegler has multiple different Mopar Powertrain Care Plus warranty plans for you to consider.
