Do Powertrain Warranties Matter and do People Even Care?
Jul 14, 2015 - 12:07 PM - by

Warranties are often advertised as a fix-everything safety net, but are they actually useful?

Recently, there have been some changes with the powertrain warranty coverage on new vehicles from General Motors and FiatĖChrysler Automobiles. Both automakers have dropped their powertrain warranty coverage to five years/60,000 miles from 10 years/100,000 miles.

Powertrain warranties only cover a limited selection of items on your car, specifically components that only have to do with providing the vehicle power and making it move. Only Kia, Hyundai and Mitsubishi offer 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranties following the changes by GM and FCA.

In the past, those long warranties were offered to help get new buyers into showrooms, but now companies are realizing that such coverage doesnít seem to impact new car buyers. Even Kia and Hyundai put some heavy restrictions on their warranties, like how they canít be transferred to second owners.

Why Wonít My Car Start?
May 05, 2015 - 12:07 PM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'

While the two situations might seem similar, they have very different meanings that are important to a mechanic and can signal different problems calling for a variety of solutions.

'Itís important to note that a vehicle is an extremely complicated machine and can exhibit similar symptoms for a variety of reasons,' he said. 'That is why itís important to first look at the type of Ďno startí and then at the list of conditions that could be causing it in the first place.'
