While your manufacturer’s warranty has helped keep your Dodge Ram on the road, there comes a time when the warranty will expire. Then what? Buying a Dodge Ram extended warranty will keep your truck running longer and may save you hundreds—or possibly thousands—of dollars over time.
Learn more about your Dodge Ram basic coverage and how an extended warranty from CARCHEX can protect your vehicle down the road.
Chrysler dealerships nationwide offer extended warranty coverage for your Dodge Ram. An extended warranty is a good choice if you own a vehicle that is known to need frequent repairs and if you plan to keep your vehicle long past the basic warranty expires. The Dodge Ram series has mixed reviews when it comes to reliability, with the 2019 Ram 1500 scoring a high grade.
Buying extended warranty coverage through a third-party company like CARCHEX gives you peace of mind that you’re protected should something unexpected happen to your vehicle. When you buy an extended warranty through a CARCHEX Extended Vehicle Protection Plan, you receive a number of benefits and services along with the warranty itself. CARCHEX aims to go above and beyond the service offered through other third-party providers and manufacturer extended warranties.
The chart below shows the five levels of extended coverage that are available from CARCHEX. We offer protection plans within each level to meet your needs.
You may wonder why you should consider an extended warranty from a third-party provider instead of Dodge’s extended factory warranty. Either way you’ll get extended service, right? Consider these reasons:
Whether you were anticipating a fix or your vehicle surprised you with an untimely repair, it doesn’t matter. Repairs for Dodge Rams can be expensive to pay out of pocket. If you’re used to being covered by your Dodge Ram factory warranty, it can be easy to lose touch with the costs associated with repairing your truck.
Here are some common repairs performed on Dodge Ram trucks:
While some of these common repairs might appear to be affordable, they can add up quickly. If you want to ensure that you’ll be protected from high repair costs, make sure to purchase an extended warranty. That way, you can avoid pricey lump-sum expenses like those listed above and extend the life of your Ram.
Typical factory warranties cover you for only a few years. They can be broken down into two components: the basic, bumper-to-bumper warranty and the powertrain warranty.
Most Dodge models have a 5-year / 60,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a 3-year / 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper (or basic) warranty. Each warranty covers different aspects of your Dodge Ram.
What’s not covered by the Dodge Ram extended factory warranty?
If you drive a Dodge vehicle, chances are you want to get more than a few years out of your investment. What will you do after your coverage has expired? What if you want to buy a used Dodge Ram that’s no longer under the factory warranty? Did you know that Dodge Ram owners give its reliability shaky reviews?
Because factory coverage quickly expires and manufacturer warranties often contain loopholes that void coverage, extended warranties are a good idea if you want to get the most life out of your Dodge Ram.
Trying to decide on which extended warranty to purchase can be daunting. Know what to look for when you’re searching for the best and most affordable extended coverage for your Dodge truck before you buy. The best warranties will offer the following:
