Chrysler Changes Lifetime Powertrain Warranty to 5yr/100k Miles

Chrysler’s Lifetime Powertrain Warranty was the best warranty in the industry, but Chrysler spokesman Rick Deneau has confirmed that the automaker is ditching this warranty for more conventional five-year/100,000 warranty. The main issue with the lifetime warranty was that it only applied to the original owner, once it had been sold the warranty changed to 3yr/ 36k.

Deneau stated, “The issue of transferability was something people found very appealing,” he said. The lifetime powertrain warranty “wasn’t as valuable to consumers as we might have hoped.”

The new warranty applies to all 2010 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep models (except the Sprinter van and diesel powered trucks).
