It’s essential to know what is included in a vehicle’s powertrain. Given below are the powertrain components that mechanically drive your vehicle:
• Axles (on most vehicles)
• Drive shafts
• Transfer case (on four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles)
Besides these parts, a vehicle manufacturer manufactures parts that are included or excluded from the original warranties of powertrain as they see fit. These powertrain components can be hubs, wheel bearings, exhaust manifolds, axle shafts, and much more.
ü What does a powertrain warranty include
Whether you purchase a used or new car, you always see that the car should not give you significant expense afterward. If there is any defect that arises after purchasing, it should be repaired or rectified properly with low-cost or free, and you always want that assurance for yourself, from whatever company you purchase the car. It should not give you much pain for thinking about the repairing of the car. For that, you need to know the components of the powertrain which provides the warranty. Not every element is included in the warranty, but some of the powertrain components that are covered by the warranty are given below:
• Accessory coverage
• Battery coverage
• Warranty on Audio component
• Comprehensive warranty also referred to like a new car warranty or a “bumper-to-bumper” warranty
• Warranty on powertrain
• Warranty on emissions
• Warranty on rust
• Roadside assistance
ü Why is Powertrain Warranty Important?Powertrain warranty is important because the repairing cost of powertrain components is not inexpensive. Whether there is an oil leak in the front pump seal or one or more of the engine’s cylinders have low compression, or it’s a simple noise bearing problem in the differential, it may cost you hundreds of dollars.
Hence powertrain warranty will save you some penny. Not only this, the warranty process shows the commitment of a manufacturer towards its quality products.
