I guess that's my point...

For years, Chrysler has offered a 10 year/100K mile warranty on the drivetrains of their new vehicles. While that sounds impressive, what could possibly go wrong with a drivetrain (engine/transmission/axle) in 100K miles that's not due to neglect or abuse?
If you don't change the oil, the warranty's void. If you run it our of oil, the warranty's void. If you over-heat it, the warranty's void.
It's really a very empty promise.

The truth is, that the drivetrain is the least of your concerns.(Frankly, it's everything else on the piece of crap that's going to fall apart!)
