The basic warranty does continue to cover the car up to 5 years or 60,000 miles. The power train warranty drops from 10 years 100,000 miles to 5 years or 60,000 miles for succeeding owners.

The powertrain control module (PCM) also referred to as the computer and the catalytic converter are Federally mandated to be covered for either 5 years or 50,000 miles or 8 years or 80,000 miles whichever comes first depending on where you are. Under this law it doesn't matter how many owners the car's had. You're still covered. HTH. -Jim
