A Dodge powertrain warranty provides basic protection to your engine, transmission, and other components that keep your car running. But is that enough? Increasing that protection with a third-party extended warranty from CARCHEX may be the best decision to keeping your car on the road while protecting you from high repair costs.
Provided by the Dodge dealership, every new Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) US LLC vehicle comes with a few warranties to cover the costs of repairs and replacements in the initial ownership period.
A Dodge Powertrain Limited Warranty covers the costs for the main components that make your car run, including parts and labor. This warranty lasts for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. The covered powertrain components include:
In addition to the Dodge powertrain warranty, a 3-year, 36,000-mile Basic Limited Warranty comes with your new car. This covers most systems and related parts outside of the powertrain, excluding a short list of exceptions.
New Dodge vehicles also come with Roadside Assistance Services that last for five years or 100,000 miles. 2017 models are eligible for this benefit for five years or 60,000 miles. Roadside assistance includes towing, battery jumpstart, roadside fuel delivery, and flat tire services.
While the limited Dodge powertrain warranty is a good start, there is a chance you could be on the hook for debilitating repair costs should something go wrong. The Dodge warranty only covers repairs and replacements for faulty factory parts, materials, or workmanship. That means you’re paying for anything caused by normal use.
Reliability scores can help determine the likeliness of your Dodge needing repairs. In recent road test scores that charted safety performance and owner satisfaction, Dodge ranked 26th of 33 automakers and scored “worse than average” for predicted reliability. RepairPal ranked Dodge as above average, with an average annual repair cost of $580. Take a look at these common Dodge repairs and replacements for the powertrain.
|Common Dodge Powertrain Repairs|
|2001 Dodge Intrepid||Replacement for failed engine||$4,500|
|2004 Dodge Durango||Replacement for failed engine||$5,090|
|Dodge Ram||Transmission replacement||$1,000 or more|
|Dodge Charger||Belt tensioner replacement||$175–$186|
|Dodge Ram 2500||Axle shaft replacement||$2,311–$2,342|
|Dodge Avenger||EGR valve replacement||$240–$263|
