If you own a Dodge truck, you may want to purchase additional coverage beyond your factory warranty. With a Dodge truck warranty, various items are covered for different lengths of time, making it even more important for owners to make sure they remain protected. Keep reading to learn about Dodge truck warranties.
Dodge Truck Warranty Plans
The factory warranty for a Dodge truck has three different coverage levels. Comprehensive coverage (also known as bumper-to-bumper) lasts 36,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first. Powertrain coverage lasts five years and 60,000 miles for gasoline engines and 100,000 miles for diesel engines. For owners who intend to keep their trucks longer than this coverage period, they may benefit from an extended plan.
Why Dodge Trucks Need Protection
A recent study by J.D. Power and Associates provides good information as to why Dodge owners need to consider purchasing an extended warranty. Its 2016 Vehicle Dependability Study found Dodge to be the least reliable brand. Among the 32 automakers listed, Dodge averaged the most problems per 100 vehicles.
With a high likelihood of some failure, Dodge owners should protect themselves from costly repairs.
Extended Warranties Explained
Dodge truck owners generally have two options when it comes to purchasing an extended warranty:
- Purchase a Mopar Vehicle Plan from a Fiat Chrysler dealership.
- Purchase an aftermarket, third-party warranty for extra coverage.
Factory warranties are typically more expensive and require the vehicle to be serviced at the dealership. Protection plans from a trusted provider like CARCHEX allow Dodge truck owners to take their vehicle to any approved mechanic. CARCHEX also offers a wider variety of Vehicle Protection Plans, so you can get the exact coverage you need at a price you can afford.
