100,000 powertrain warranty - hydro-boost pump?

I have a failing hydro-boost pump (leaking fluid all over the engine bay) Brakes are sloppy and the dealership quoted me $600 to replace it.

I *thought* that safety issues (brakes, etc.) were also covered under the 100,000 powertrain warranty. Am I wrong?

You are incorrect.

Powertrain is just that. Engine/trans/axles/etc.

Are you talking the hydroboost unit itself, or the pump on the engine (which doubles as the power steering pump).

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

At best, you may be able to have a local rebuilder recondition it for you.

Thanks, that's what I figured out via the dealership as well.
