FCA Rolls Back Powertrain Warranty

May 28, 2015

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — FCA US has reduced its powertrain coverage for 2016 model-year vehicles following a move by General Motors earlier this year to reduce its warranty coverage.

For 2016, FCA will offer a five-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty for its Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram Truck vehicles powered by gasoline engines, according to a company statement. FCA had previously offered a warranty covering five years and 100,000 miles.The diesel warranty is unchanged.

"Following changes already made by competitors, FCA US is adjusting powertrain warranty coverage for 2016-MY vehicles to be more consistent with industry practices," according to the statement.

The basic warranty, also known as bumper to bumper, remains at three years and 36,000 miles.

In March, General Motors also reduced its powertrain warranty to five years and 60,000 miles.
