    The basics

    Driveline is smart’s official back-to-basics extended warranty option. It protects the main components that make up the engine, transmission and drive-train of your smart car. Essentially, this means the main parts that make your car run.

    It’s the least comprehensive of our extended warranties, but the most inexpensive. If you’re looking for more extensive cover, including the cover of more components, a higher claims limit and replacement vehicle cover, check out our Tier 1 and Tier 2 extended warranties instead.

    With all levels of smart extended warranty cover, should a problem arise with your smart car, all you need to do is get in touch with your nearest authorised smart retailer and let them know that your car is covered. They’ll ensure that your vehicle is seen by qualified technicians and, if repairs are required, that only genuine smart parts are used.
