I don't think it is. Mine ('05) went bad at 77,000 miles and was going to be charged over $400 to replace it even though my PT Warranty was still in effect.

Um...just because it is part of the engine does not mean it is covered under the 5 year/100,000 warranty. If you did a little research you find that ONLY LUBRICATED PARTS (ON THE ENGINE) ARE COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY.

Mine went out at about 90K miles and it was going to be hella expensive to buy the alternator.......I had a motor repair shop rebuild it for about a $100 bucks. Installed it myself, but the belt is a b*tch to get on...
