Lifetime powertrain warranty!


That’s right. Sounds pretty amazing.

Starting with cars and trucks delivered on and after July 26th.
The warranty will cover the engine, drive system and transmission. Original owner only.
And the car has to be inspected at a dealer (for free) every 5 years.

That sounds great. I know most powertrains are actually the most reliable parts . Usually problems are caused by electronics, or trims etc…
Although Chrysler has had many transmission problems in the past.

No matter what, this is a great idea.

  1. 1) It Still is not enough to get me to buy a Sebring.

    2) Relative had a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo… at 107K…. the tranny died, and this would haev helped, But…the relative also had abs issues… and when he fixed them, cost him a good amount of cash… so….
    saev 3,000+ on one item, maybe spend what, 800-1,500 for ABS repairs?(he never said… mentioned it would cost alot, and regular brakes worked, so, he did not mess with the ABS repairs, just sold the thing a few months later).

    3) Impress me Chrysler: Off 10/100K bumper-to-bumper and this lifetime drivetrain warranty.
    The old 7/100K warranty did not last Chrysler long,and I suspect it was due to them having to losing $$ on repair costs, a few years ago.
    Who knows?
    I wonder if they’ll charge a 100 dollar deductible for warranty work, like they did with the 7/100K a while back?

    I’d be more impressed with a FWD Sebring that is akin to a mini-300, something people would want to buy outside of fleet rental agencies, and employee/disount deals. I have only seen One(Maybe 2) Sebring(s) in 10 months since it was released!

  2. This is excellent because it covers the most expensive parts of the car. What kind of bumper-to-bumper are they going to offer? Hopefully this will be better than Hyundais warranty, which isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

  3. dunno if vince will post this..but… to this guy

    How do I know this? Simnple, your state reminds me of a UAW’ers comments I know.

    Plus, our 2001 Tiburon, at 99,307.3 Miles had passeneger side, front ned, bearing issue. They replaced Both Sides under warranty w/o any arguing
    Your so full of it. Why lie?

    You have no clue, except what your UAw()Or Toyota.Honda) handbook tells you to think and say.

    I hate liars. Make me wanna punch em right in the face, so they look like vince.

  4. Vince, I apologize for attakcing the moron saying hyundai warranty isn’t worht anything, especially the part where I said I want to hit liars so hard, they look like you… make that until they make you look like a movie star!
    BTW..where’s that tv show ya mentioned about awhile back, is it the new “Cavemen” show 😉
    jk…vince.. yer #1.

  5. If it’s just for the first owner, it doesn’t seem like Chrysler is risking much or showing its reliability since very few cars run over 100k miles without changing hands.

    Ding Dong is correct.

    Chrysler products are junk. Mercedes helped them out greatly, but they still can’t produce a competitive vehicle with a decent interior. My best friend had a 2002 Grand Cherokee Overland.

    8K Engine was replaced, entire engine. Massive failure.
    40K Transmission replaced
    60K Transfer case failed, replaced
    80K Transmission repaired
    90K Rear differential gear failure.
    Throughout the life of this vehicle it has had more smaller problems than he could count. It is junk, absolute junk. He brought it to a Jeep dealership for all the regular maintainence and he doesn’t drive hard. The only thing nice about this vehicle is the seats that are as comfortable as a barcalounger.

  7. Great advertising similar to Huyndai but does not mean much to the average consumer. Most average consumers don’t keep their cars for more than 4 years or the life of the loan so this warranty means almost nothing for a second owner. Moreover, it does not matter how long the warranty is if you have to take the car in for consistent repair while wasting a day or two from work. The best warranty is one that you don’t have to visit the dealership for repair!

    My 2004 Sienna now has more than 45k miles and haven’t seen a dealership for any warranty service …

  8. Give Chrysler a break. Their cars aren’t that bad. Everyone has a friend of a relative who has a neighbor who’s cousin once owned a piece of crap car from every make. Why, take me for example. I have a relative whose friend’s neighbor’s cousin had a 2004 Siena minivan… total piece of dung. Ran great right up until about 50,000 miles, and then just fell apart.

    See… anecdotes aren’t worth much.
