Wouldn't the 5 year 50,000 power train warranty cover the transmission even if its used? Any and all help is appreciated, thank you!
I don't know how warranty contracts works. I thought warranty transfers no matter who ones and who buys. Usually it's 3y-36k bumper to bumper and 5y-50 power train. I would suggest to contact your seller and ask him if they had warranty at all. I my case: I bought it new 3 towns over, cause they had Sel and color was right. And I can stop by at any dealer. Unless I misunderstood what dealer told me.
