    Question about Powertrain Warranty

    I own a 2007 ESV that I bought used a few years ago. The front hub on the drivers side has gone out and I was wondering if it was covered under the powertrain warranty. The vehicle currently has 84000 miles on it...what are the parameters of the powertrain warranty?

    Yes it is covered. Ball joints are also covered under powertrain.

    Thanks, unfortunately it is 5/100000 from in-service date and mine was 6/14/2006 so it appears I am 5 1/2 months out of warranty.

    Re: Question about Powertrain Warranty

    The problem with that is that I would have to have it towed into the dealership and if they then decide they won't cover it under warranty I either have to pay them to repair it or pay to have it towed back to my home. If I call them and ask them, they will just say "well, we need you to bring it in before we can make a decision like that". The towing alone could surpass the cost of the hub.

    if one goes out I would replace both of them at the same time. I have 2 for mine here just incase one fails. They cost more than a wrecker fee.

    Call the dealership and ask them, they can only say no
