Lifetime Powertrain Warranty

Used Vehicles with Powertrain Warranty 

Lifetime Powertrain Warranty at The Bear Lot

Enjoy greater peace of mind when you drive a used vehicle from The Bear Lot. We offer a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty for most Certified Pre-Owned vehicles on our lot. You can feel confident as you drive off our lot that you have a dependable vehicle to get you where you need to go.

The Lifetime Powertrain Warranty from The Bear Lot goes even further than the manufacturer's warranty for a Mitsubishi. It begins at the date of sale and continues for as long as the customer owns the vehicle. When you buy a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Mitsubishi from The Bear Lot, you get a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty on your vehicle. Your Bear Lot Lifetime Powertrain Warranty is good from the sale date throughout the lifetime of the buyer. When you purchase a CPO, the warranty transfers to you and is good throughout your lifetime or until you no longer own the vehicle.

What's Covered

The Lifetime Powertrain Warranty includes all the major components of the powertrain. For instance, it includes the cylinder block and heads, intake and exhaust manifolds, timing gears and chains, water pump, oil pump, transmission, and drive train assembly. To find out if a component is covered, you can check with The Bear Lot service team.

For the first ten years or 100,000 miles, there is no deductible for any repairs performed by The Bear Lot for a covered component. After this time, the deductible is $300 no matter where you have the repairs performed.

Your warranty is inclusionary, meaning it only covers certain parts like the following for these categories.

Engine

  • Intake and exhaust manifolds
  • Cylinder block and cylinder heads
  • Rotor housing and their internal parts
  • Timing belts, chains, and gears
  • Harmonic balancer and flywheel
  • Vacuum pump, water pump, oil pump, oil pan and more

  • Four-wheel drive actuator/motor, traction control linkage and solenoids
  • 4x4 locking hub, front wheel drive, rear wheel drive and more

Deductible

As part of your warranty, you will pay a small deductible on covered repairs. For used vehicles, the warranty has a $100 deductible or $50 if you service it at The Bear Lot. Part of the customer's responsibility is to have conventional oil changes completed every 3,000 miles and synthetic every 5,000 to keep warranty coverage intact.

Restrictions and Limitations with the Warranty

The Lifetime Powertrain Warranty doesn't include vehicles that are used for commercial purposes or those that are designed for racing. Any failures caused by lack of maintenance or from continuing to drive the vehicle after the damage has been noted won't be covered by the warranty.

To ensure the warranty isn't voided, the owner has specific responsibilities. They must maintain the vehicle according to the manufacturer's recommended schedule. The owner must also keep records of all maintenance performed, which includes the date of service. If the owner performs any of their own maintenance, they must keep receipts for any new parts added to the vehicle. If any problem develops with the vehicle, it is the responsibility of the owner to prevent further damage, which may include not continuing to drive it until it has been repaired.

Non-Covered Conditions

It is important to note that the warranty is a limited warranty and there are certain situations where the warranty will not apply. These conditions include:

  • Vehicles used for government, commercial, or business purposes.
  • Vehicles used in competitive driving, racing, towing a trailer or boat or other vehicles unless the vehicle was equipped with a package for towing.
  • Damage to vehicle due to rust or contamination
  • Any expenses incurred by performing repairs without approval from the warranty plan administrator.
  • Any mechanical failure caused by sludge buildup, contaminants, foreign objects or lack of proper maintenance practices such as fluids, coolants, refrigerants, lubricants etc.
  • Any loss or failures by overheating.
  • Any loss normally covered by insurance policy.
  • Any damage to or from a non-covered part.
  • Any damage that can be attributed to continued operation of a vehicle whenever an apparent problem exists if the owner fails to take precautions to limit further damage.
  • If the odometer is damaged or has been altered or tampered with during the time of ownership so actual mileage cannot be determined.
  • If the vehicle has been modified or changes made to the powertrain, or to the suspension, tire or wheel sizes or alterations to the exhaust system.

Owner Responsibilities

If regular maintenance is not performed according to manufacturer recommendations, coverage under this limited warranty may be restricted or denied. Your requirements include keeping up with maintenance and retaining proof of maintenance by you or a service center.

Excluded Vehicles

Certain vehicles will be excluded from the warranty, to include Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. 

Choose the Right Model

Leased vehicles are excluded from the warranty along with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. However, you can get the warranty if you like the Mitsubishi Outlander or the Outlander Sport.

Another option for your driving needs is the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which is a mid-size SUV that offers efficiency and style wherever you go. This model seats five, providing ample space for all your gear as well.

If you prefer a more compact model, the Mirage G4 sedan is a contemporary choice. For more room for your gear, the Mirage hatchback is the perfect solution. You can feel confident about whichever model you select, knowing it comes with a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty.
