Chrysler announces lifetime powertrain warranty!

I hope others will follow suit......

Source

Quote:
Chrysler today leapfrogged every other car maker by extending its powertrain warranty on every new car and truck it sells to the life of the vehicle. The warranty will apply to the entire powertrain including the engine, transmission/transaxle, drive shafts, and axles. The new warranty goes into effect today, July 26, 2007 and applies to all new 2007s that are on the dealer lots as well as 2008 models.

The warranty covers all parts and labor as long as the owner brings the car in to a Chrysler dealer at least once every five years for a free powertrain inspection. Apparently, the only fly in the ointment is that the new warranty applies to the original owner and is not transferable. If the car is sold within the first three years, the warranty reverts to the previous 3 year/36,000 mile coverage for subsequent owners. The press release is after the jump.

That is good news for 2500 and 3500 truck owners, as U-Joints go ever 50,000kms

yeep, but a U-joint is a $30 and 1/2 hour problem, and Chryco apparently don't want people to not buy a truck over something like that.

True however there are three on the front drive-shaft, which is a pain in the a** to change. So the dealer went ahead and just changed the whole thing.

$400 was the total warranty repair bill.


Also the front steering U-joints will take you a lot longer then 1/2hr to change.


And why are Diesels not included?, that does not make any sense, since the 2500 gas trucks are identical accept for the motor of course.

I would think it has to do with the engine manufacture not playing along, but I'm not sure.

well Cummins is owned by Ford, and I very much doubt Ford would be feeling like allowing Dodge to do something like that. Could be they offer like a "transmission and back" warranty, and Cummins offers a 10 year, million mile one on the side... which is what they offer in the big trucks I think.

and ya, front hub U-joints are a mothercunt, especially on a D60 with a full kingpin.

on the plusside.. you don't have to worry about balljoints

^ Well now, that is funny, considering Ford runs International built Diesels in there trucks. And those diesel suck, I lost count on how many Ford trucks I have seen with the Cummins motors in them.

lol, I saw one not long ago (ford with a cummins) and in the back window was a sticker "I'd rather be cummin than strokin'"

it's in the contract tho that Ford can't use the motor in their own trucks while they're supplying to Dodge.

so what
most people wont last more than the 10 years by several other manufacturers.

and it doesnt cover a lot of vehicles
no srt vehicles
no diesels
etc

and its for the original owner only, so now they've basically screwed everyone who buys a used low mileage 3 year old vehicle as they now have NO warranty, even a pay for transfer one.

its marketing, plain and simple, and there are so many stipulations, (just like the others) that very few real changes are in effect.

btw, it wont cover u joints as those are considered wearable items and are to be replaced by the owner.
same as tires and brake pads under a bumper to bumper warranty.


having said all that, they probably needed to do it as there is so much backlash against their transmissions from the ram trucks in the mid-late 90's that it is most likely affecting sales.

I know as I had all seven of them replaced.

2 on the rear drive-shaft, 3 on the front, and one in each steering pivot.

Once the power-train is up @ 115, I will replace them with greasable joints.


IFS??

How do you give a lifetime warranty to something that doesn't last a lifetime?
