Default Lifetime Powertrain Warranty

Hey all, I was told by the sales person when I bought my 2010 Ram in Nov of 2009 that I had a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. Everything online says different. Can anyone shed any light on this for me please?

Thanks!

What do you mean by "Everything online says different."?

I'd go over your purchase paperwork and talk with your service advisor to check the warranty records against your VIN. That is where the specific warranty info on your truck will be found.

Special offers come and go on websites and salesmen lie.

Sorry, you were misinformed about the warranty, as the others have said, it ended in 09.

You can and should buy the Chrysler Maximum Care extended warranty. It is a bumper to bumper warranty and can be purchased for various lengths of coverage up to and including Lifetime unlimited mileage. The price is well worth it when you consider the cost of replacing a PCM or other computer. You do not have to buy it now, you can wait until you are close to using up the 3yr/36,000 mile factory warranty but it must be purchased before the end of the original warranty.

Many of the extended warranties sold by the dealers are not bumper to bumper and in many cases are only good within that dealer's network.
