Ram’s manufacturer warranty can be broken down into four parts: basic limited, powertrain limited, corrosion, and federal emission warranties.
Basic Limited Warranty
Ram’s basic limited warranty, otherwise known as a bumper-to-bumper warranty, covers the cost of repair parts and labor due to defectiveness in material, workmanship, or factory preparation. This warranty gets its bumper-to-bumper name because it covers almost all of your vehicle’s parts. The only exclusions to this warranty are tires and unwired headphones.
This warranty has two lengths depending on the parts it is covering. Almost all parts are covered for three years/36,000 miles. The following parts are covered for less time at one year/12,000 miles:
- Clutch discs/modular disc assembly
- Wheel alignment and balancing
- Windshield and rear window
- Wiper blades
If one of the protected parts were to need repair, and you couldn’t get your car to a dealership, Ram offers complimentary towing for up to 10 miles away to a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram dealer.
Powertrain Limited Warranty
Ram’s powertrain warranty lasts five years/60,000 miles and covers the cost of parts and labor for powertrain components, which are the parts that power your vehicle. Ram’s protected parts include:
- Gasoline engine
- Front-wheel drive
- All-wheel drive
- Rear-wheel drive
- Four-wheel drive
This part of the warranty has the same towing services as the basic limited warranty, providing complimentary towing to a dealership within 10 miles of the breakdown.
This warranty protects the sheet metal panels on your car that develop holes or rust from corrosion. However, certain types of surface or cosmetic corrosion are not covered. For example, if corrosion were to occur from driving through ocean spray, that will not be covered because it didn’t cause structural damage to the vehicle.
For outer-body sheet metal panels, you have protection for 60 months with no mileage limit. For the rest of the sheet metal panels, you are protected for 36 months.
Federal Emission Warranty
Federal law requires Ram to offer protection to certain emission parts. These parts are listed in detail in the Ram factory warranty booklet, but depending on the part, it will be covered for either two years/24,000 miles or eight years/80,000 miles.
What Is Not Covered
Just like any factory warranty, Ram has a list of exclusions that aren’t protected under any portion of the warranty.
