What Is a Powertrain Warranty?
A vehicle’s powertrain is a system made up of key components that act in tandem to propel and drive the vehicle. Though this term is often a catch-all description to cover many different parts of an automobile, it typically covers the engine, the transmission, and the drivetrain.
A Powertrain Warranty is a limited warranty that covers the mechanical components of the powertrain and covers the repair costs if they should fail for any other reason than driver failure during the listed term period. Nissan guarantees the reliability of their vehicles for set periods. That means you don’t pay if something goes wrong.
If the basic warranty period is not long enough to satisfy your needs, you may also consider purchasing an extended powertrain warranty.
What specifically is covered with a Basic Nissan Powertrain Warranty?
Unfortunately, which parts are covered varies greatly between vehicles, even ones of the same make. The reason why is because there are many different engine types (standard, diesel, hybrid, etc.) and also many different transmission types (FWD, RWD, AWD, 4WD, etc.), all of which include different sets of parts. For this reason, there is no set standard. Ask your service professional what components are included with your powertrain warranty.
