Are Extended Warranties Worth It?

car insurance concept

When Nickerson drivers buy a new RAM truck, or any other CDJR vehicle, we know they want to protect their investment with the best warranties available. You might be asking yourself, “Should I buy extended warranties,” and “Are extended warranties worth it?” Learn more with Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. 

What is an Extended Warranty?

Your new CDJR comes with a 3 year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers any factory defects. You might want to extend your coverage for a longer period of time, especially if you’re adding up the miles between Buhler and Newton. That’s where an extended warranty comes into play. It picks up where your factory warranty leaves off. All CDJR warranties are sold and managed by Mopar instead of an outside warranty company. 

What Mopar® Extended Warranties are Available? 

There are two Mopar® extended warranties available for your CDJR Vehicle: Maximum Care and Added Care Plus. Here’s what they include: 

Maximum Care

You get the additional coverage outlined below, along with coverage on the engine, driveline, transmission, steering, electrical, brakes, and air conditioning. 

  • Coverage up to 8 years/125,000 miles
  • Comprehensive coverage for over 5,000 critical components
  • Certified, factory-trained, expert technicians
  • $200, $100, or $0 deductible
  • Service at dealerships throughout North America
  • Car rental and towing allowance
  • Roadside assistance
  • Key fob repair/replacement
  • Trip interruption protection

Added Care Plus

Your new CDJR comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. If you’d like to extend that coverage, the Added Care Plus plan is for you. This plan includes a variety of coverage and deductibles that can be tailored to your needs and covers over 800 parts of your car’s powertrain.

Should I Buy Extended Warranties? 

Still asking are extended warranties worth it? The average Chrysler is so reliable that RepairPal says most CDJR vehicles have 0.3 annual visits for unplanned repairs. However, when they do require repair work, it can get pricey. In 13 percent of unplanned CDJR repairs, the cost is over $1,800. If you plan to put a lot of miles on your vehicle in a short period of time, or you’re using your RAM as a work truck, an extended warranty is definitely worth the money.
