When you buy a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM vehicle, you get the peace of mind that comes with an extensive warranty. The result is less money spent on regular car repairs and maintenance and even some roadside assistance so you don’t have to worry about getting a flat tire in the middle of nowhere.
Understanding the Coverage
The warranty coverage for a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM vehicle is essentially the same since they are all part of the same larger company. Most people choose to buy a gas-powered vehicle, and in this case, you will get a Powertrain Limited Warranty that lasts 60,000 miles or 5 years, whichever comes first. The Powertrain Limited Warranty for diesel vehicles is even better, lasting 5 years or 100,000 miles. Depending on the vehicle, even the gas engine may have 100,000 miles of coverage. In either case, the Powertrain Limited Warranty includes the drive system, transmission, and engine on the majority of new models.
Your new vehicle from Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, or RAM will also include a Basic Limited Warranty for bumper-to-bumper coverage. This includes nearly everything from the electrical system to the body and in between. That coverage lasts a full 36,000 miles or 3 years.
To make life easier, the majority of these new models also include Roadside Assistance Service. That roadside assistance will provide a range of services, including towing to the closest dealership, flat tire service, fuel delivery, battery jump starts, and more. Chrysler models, for example, have this Roadside Assistance Service for 5 years or 100,000 miles. If you choose to sell your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM in the next few years, the warranty is transferrable, so it will add to the value of your vehicle.
When that Coverage Comes in Handy
Your warranty coverage can save you a great deal of money as well as stress related to owning a vehicle. If you are on a road trip and forget to refill your tank, the Roadside Assistance Service’s fuel delivery can give you more than enough gas to make it to the next fuel station to fill up. Or if your battery dies and no one is around to give you a jump start, the same service can come take care of that for you. If the vehicle still won’t start, you won’t have to worry about finding a tow company, which can be a challenge if you are far from home, as the warranty takes care of this.
All vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM are built to last, but if you happen to notice odd noises from the engine, your Powertrain Limited Warranty will cover any necessary repairs or replacement. This way, you don’t have to spend money on having the issue diagnosed and fixed. The same is true of any manufacturer defects with the vehicle, as these will be covered by the Bumper-to-Bumper warranty. With the warranty, you just have to visit your dealership’s service center, and they will take care of everything.
