One of the most important things to understand about the Mitsubishi 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty is what it covers. This amazing warranty is one of the longest lasting guarantees in the industry, but it doesn’t cover every part of your vehicle. A powertrain warranty includes your car’s engine, transmission, and drivetrain. If something happens to any of these parts while the warranty is still active, then the manufacturer will pay for the repairs or replacements. To give you a better understanding of the different parts that are covered by this warranty, here’s a quick description of each:

  • Engine: The engine is comprised of the machinery that moves the car. Since it consists of many moving parts, protecting the entire engine with a warranty can save you a lot of money in repairs.
  • Transmission: The transmission is what changes your vehicle’s gears. Whether manual or automatic, the transmission adjusts between gears depending on your speed.
  • Transfer case: The transfer case moves power from the transmission to the wheels to move the car forward.
  • Drive shafts: These are rotating shafts that run through the length of the car. These components transfer the engine’s torque through the car.
  • Axles: These are the rods that pass through your wheels to give you control over the direction of your car. Most vehicles have two axles.
  • Drive box: The drive box is a device that transfers the rotation and momentum needed to move the various parts of your car.

These are all the parts that are covered by a powertrain warranty. If you have questions about a specific part, or want to have your vehicle inspected to see if there are issues with any of these components, please schedule a service appointment at our service department. Our qualified mechanics are standing by to give you the assistance you need to get your car back in peak condition.

What’s Not Covered by the 10-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty?

While the 10-year powertrain warranty can save you money when repairing the covered components, it does not cover all of your car’s essential parts. Understanding what parts are not covered by this warranty can prepare you to pay for essential repairs when it’s time. While this warranty doesn’t cover everything, Mitsubishi offers a variety of different warranties to new car buyers, so it might be a good idea to explore what other warranties you have available. Here’s a list of some of the parts that are not covered by the 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty:

  • Engine sensors.
  • Engine wires.
  • Coolant hoses.
  • Transmission hoses.
  • Transmission electrical connectors.
  • Clutch and pressure plates.
  • Drive wheel front and rear hub bearings.
  • Electrical connectors related to drive systems.

These are just a few of the parts that your warranty might not cover. If you want a more comprehensive list, you should contact the manufacturer for details. It’s also worth nothing that the warranty might not extend to damage to normal parts that has been caused by accidents or collisions, improper maintenance, alterations made against manufacturer’s warnings, or damage due to aftermarket products.

How To Get the 10-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty

Mitsubishi’s amazing warranty doesn’t apply to every vehicle, but if you purchase from an authorized Mitsubishi Dealer, then you’ll likely be able to enjoy this deal. The warranty extends to the original owners of new, retailed Mitsubishis, as long as they have been purchased from an authorized dealer. It covers the regular components, as well as any authorized Mitsubishi powertrain components that have been installed by a certified Mitsubishi dealer.

Most models enjoy the full, 10-year/100,000-mile warranty, but you should check with the dealer before purchasing your car to confirm. If you aren’t the original owner of the car, then you can still enjoy a five-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty. This limited warranty makes buying a used Mitsubishi an amazing choice, as you don’t have to worry about the cost of repairing these expensive parts. The coverage of this warranty is just one of the reasons that buying your car from an authorized Mitsubishi dealer is your best option.
