What Is a Powertrain Warranty?
So, we know that new cars come with a powertrain warranty but what is it? A powertrain warranty included with a new car usually lasts between four and 10 years, or 50,000 and 100,000 miles—whichever occurs first. When the car is sold to a second owner, the remainder of the car’s powertrain warranty, in most cases, transfers to the next owner. If you buy a used car, it’s a good idea to ask the seller or dealer how much, if any, of its powertrain warranty is left.
What’s Included in a Powertrain Warranty?
Powertrain warranties typically cover repairs necessary to correct a defect in the manufacturing of the transmission, engine, and the moving parts that help turn the wheels, such as the axles, driveshaft, and CV joints. Some powertrain warranties also cover maintenance, tire rotations, roadside assistance, seatbelts, and airbags.
What Are the Benefits of Buying a Car With More Warranty Coverage?
Powertrain warranties are good not only because they could end up saving you a lot of money on repairs, but also because they give you peace of mind when you’re behind the wheel of a car that’s a few years old. This is not to say that you should insist on powertrain warranty coverage. If you don’t mind not having a powertrain warranty, you’ll get an even better deal on a quality used car.
