Dodge offers a short bumper-to-bumper warranty, but there are several other warranties that are offered by the company. Dodge recently expanded its power train warranty, and the new warranty is good for all Dodge models from 2007 and on.
- The bumper-to-bumper Dodge warranty is good for three years or 36,000 miles. The policy is a limited warranty, and there are a few exclusions that have their own, separate warranties.
- The brakes, including the linings, rotors, drums and pads, all fall under the bumper-to-bumper warranty. But, these items are excluded and are covered for only one year or 12,000 miles.
- The clutch discs and the wiper blades fall under the same exclusion rule and are also covered for one year or 12,000 miles.
- The tires are not included in the bumper-to-bumper warranty. They fall under the tire manufacturer's warranty for any defects.
- Towing is included in the bumper-to-bumper warranty for the first three years or 36,000 miles. The coverage applies when the vehicle breaks down due to problems that are covered by the warranty.
- The Dodge bumper-to-bumper warranty is transferable to any new owners during the warranty time period. There is no charge to transfer the warranty.
- The power train warranty covers the engine, the driveline and the transmission. It covers 300 separate components of the vehicle.
- The new power train warranty covers the labor and parts costs for any repairs or replacements needed for the components of the vehicle's power train. These include the drive system, the transmission and the engine.
- The power train warranty begins when the bumper-to-bumper warranty ends. After the three years or 36,000 miles of that warranty is over, the power train warranty is good for the entire lifetime of the car. There is no mileage or year limitation on this warranty.
- The rust warranty covers the sheet metal on the outside of the vehicle. Any holes that are caused by rust corrosion are covered under this warranty. A surface chip or rusted area is not covered, nor is scratched paint. This warranty is good for five years or 100,000 miles.
- The lifetime power train warranty is only good in the U.S.
- To keep this warranty valid, the power train must be inspected by a Dodge, Jeep or Chrysler dealer every five years for the lifetime of the vehicle. The inspection is free, and it must be done within two months of each of the five-year anniversaries of the first sale of the car.
- There is no deductible for any power train warranty coverage.
- Diesel Dodge models and Sprinter and SRT models are not covered by the Lifetime Power train Warranty.
- The power train warranty is not transferable to new owners. Even new owners in the same family are not covered by the power train warranty. There are separate, extended warranties available for purchase by later owners of the vehicle.
- The emissions warranty is good for three years or 50,000 miles.
- The lifetime power train warranty offered by Chrysler is the only warranty like it offered by an American car company. It's rarely offered by any other car companies of any national origin.
