When your manufacturer’s warranty expires, a Dodge extended warranty can save you money on costly repairs and routine maintenance. By adding coverage on top of what the manufacturer provides, you can protect your new or pre-owned Dodge against common issues before they become a hassle. Learn how to get the most affordable and high quality coverage for your Dodge.
Dodge cars and trucks are powerful vehicles, but no car is perfect. In fact, there are several common problems associated with the Dodge Ram 1500:
An extended warranty can pay for these repairs when they arise, keeping you and your vehicle safe and ready to go. Save yourself from paying out-of-pocket expenses while protecting your means of transportation.
A new Dodge is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty or a 3-year/36,000-mile Basic Limited Warranty. It’s important to remember that factory warranties, including the Dodge manufacturer’s warranty, only cover parts that were defective when leaving the factory. The normal breakdown of parts over time is not covered under the factory warranty. This limitation means your Dodge vehicle is unprotected from breakdowns that happen due to normal driving activities.
A 3-year Basic Limited Warranty is sometimes called a bumper-to-bumper warranty. Unfortunately, basic warranties only last for three years—long before your car needs any of the most expensive repairs. While it will offer comprehensive coverage, most drivers won’t use their limited warranty before it expires. Many drivers never have a need for major repairs in the first few years of owning their Dodge vehicles.
Powertrain warranties last significantly longer than their basic counterparts, but they cover significantly less. Their coverage is limited to:
When these warranties expire, an extended warranty can add up to 10 years more of coverage for important parts and Dodge brand components within your vehicle. This means you’ll still get the same great coverage and more when you purchase a used Dodge.
When your factory warranty ends, your Dodge is no longer protected against breakdowns. Similar to Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, Ram, and Alfa Romeo, Dodge offers extended vehicle service contracts for both new and certified pre-owned Dodge vehicles through its service and maintenance division, Mopar. A branded Dodge extended warranty is offered by the dealership when purchasing a Dodge directly from the dealer.
There are three options for extended warranties for new or certified pre-owned Dodge cars and trucks.
|Mopar Extended Warranty Coverage||What’s Covered Under the Mopar Extended Warranty|
|Maximum Care||5,000 components in your Dodge|
|Added Care Plus||800 name components|
|Guaranteed Automotive Protection (GAP)||Covers the difference between what you owe on your Dodge and how much your insurance covers.|
You can only purchase a Dodge extended warranty within four years or 48,000 miles of your factory warranty. You can expect to pay extra fees if you wait more than a year into your factory warranty to purchase a Dodge extended warranty from the dealership.
An extended warranty from Dodge can be purchased in multiple plan options with up to eight year years of coverage for your vehicle. However, certain extended warranties apply this 8-year period to the original purchase date of the vehicle. So, if you’ve purchased a new Dodge and wait two years to add an extended warranty from your dealership for eight years, you’ll only have extended coverage for six years.
This limitation can greatly shorten the amount of time your Dodge is protected, without a significant reduction in cost. Due to the high cost of a dealership-branded extended warranty, an extended warranty from a third-party warranty company like CARCHEX may offer the right protection at an affordable price.
