What Does a Powertrain Warranty Cover? | Ames, IA

A powertrain warranty covers the entire powertrain. Simple, right? Perhaps not - powertrains are complex systems that include a lot of different parts in your vehicle. This article is going to explain what comprises a powertrain, and why powertrain warranties, like our Forever Powertrain Warranty, are very helpful for keeping your vehicle in great shape.

What is a powertrain?

Powertrains, to put it simply, are what propel a vehicle down the road. They are comprised of the following parts:

  • Your vehicle's engine
  • The transmission
  • Differentials
  • Driveshafts
  • The transfer case, for all-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles

These various components of your car transfer the energy that comes from combusting gasoline into actual movement on the road. This means that your powertrain is perhaps the most important part of the vehicle. If the headlights go out, you can still drive the vehicle to the store to get replacements. If part of the powertrain fails, the vehicle might not drive at all - or doing so may damage the car further.
