I bought my '09 in February of '09
I also have the Drive train warranty

when i bought my Ram, i also had what they call the Added Care warranty, i had a choice of 5 year, 6 year, 7 year, or 10 year. I bought the 7 year or XX amount of miles. ( I typed that to give you a reference point )

You get a 3 year or 36,000 mile factory warranty, whether you get the Basic Care warranty or not. This warranty is the KEY, before you reach 3 years or 36,000 miles, which ever comes first, you have to make a decision about Extended Warranties.

At 34,000 miles, i talked to my Service Writer & he told me what to expect & to go see the Warranty guy in the Sales Dept. ( my body tensed up in preparation, i don't like handing out my $$$ )

The Warranty guy still remembered me from the purchase of the Ram, i didn't like him the first time, because he never gave me a straight answer.
Well this time he told me how it works

What ever warranty that you have, besides the Factory Warranty, is Pro Rated, then they CANCEL that warranty, they then apply the Pro Rated amount to the New warranty & you only pay the difference.
You just have to decide whether to get the ADDED Care or Maximum Care Extended Warranty & the duration of the warranty.
I bought the Maximum Care Lifetime warranty, i believe i paid about $1,000, the Pro Rating took care of the rest
I have $100 deductible
The TRICK to the Deductible is to get everything done that you can at the same time, the deductible is Per Visit, not for each part. If you need to replace a non critical part, wait until a 2nd part needs replacing & get them done at the same time

This is the Added Care Warranty

Maximum Care Warranty

Good Luck with your decision
