What is a Powertrain Limited Warranty?

Chrysler Group LLC, the manufacturer of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram cars and trucks, offers a 5-year, 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty on the new cars and trucks we sell. The Powertrain Limited Warranty is the one you typically hear about in TV commercials or read about in ads, but unless you're well-versed in vehicle-speak, you may not fully understand what that means.

The powertrain is made up of the engine, transmission, and drivetrain. It's the system that powers the car (engine), then transfers that power to the transmission, which drives the wheels of the car or truck (drivetrain) and sends you on your way. The limited warranty covers the components of the power train if they are damaged or found to be defective within the warranty period. (A full warranty has no expiration time limit.) It excludes parts that will wear out as part of normal driving wear on your vehicle and expected to be replaced, such as clutches or CV joints and boots.

The Powertrain Limited Warranty on vehicles sold by Fort Collins Dodge Chrysler Jeep covers the cost of all parts and labor needed to repair a powertrain component listed below that is defective in workmanship and materials. It also includes the cost of towing your vehicle to our dealership or another authorized Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram dealer if it cannot be driven because a part that is covered by the warranty has failed. The warranty lasts for five years or 100,000 miles on the odometer, whichever occurs first.

The Powertrain Limited Warranty covers:

  • Gasoline Engine, including cylinder block and all internal parts, cylinder head assemblies, timing case, timing chain, timing belt, gears and sprockets, and other engine parts.
  • Transmission, including the transmission case and all internal parts, torque converter, drive/flex plate, speed sensors, and other transmission parts. It excludes all manual transmission clutch parts.
  • Front Wheel Drive, All Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Drive, and Four-Wheel Drive component and parts.

For a complete list of the specific parts that are covered, please see the online copy of our warranty manual.  And if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to talk to one of the Fort Collins Dodge Chrysler Jeep sales experts.
