Default Extended Warranty

Does anyone know of a company, other than the dealership, that offers extended warranties on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500? I have 35,000 miles on my truck, so only 1,000 left on the factory warranty. My back support pump went out in the driver seat this weekend, so I have to get it in to get fixed within those next 1,000 miles too, which doesn't give me but maybe 2 weeks.

I had a third party extended warranty on my truck which I purchased when I bought my truck. However, couple weeks ago, I got another card in the mail from Chrysler so I just cancelled the no name company and bought Chrysler's Max Care warranty for a very good price, covers everything bumper to bumper and since I had heard so many good things about it from others here, I went with it but good luck.

I have the Dodge Maximum Care warranty on my truck and have had to collect on several times. No worries, no problems, pay my $100 deductible and all is well.

You can get them online. Here's a link:

I have Zurich on my truck and my wife has Warranty Direct. Hers has come in handy and paid for several major repairs.

There are alot of different companies, but I have found the best coverage is through the manufacturer. Especially if you are away from your home dealer! Sometimes you get what you pay for. I would call a few different dealers for pricing, some may be much more aggressive!

Truth be told, if you want an extended warranty take your time and do some research. Recently a very popular warranty provider (SFG) went under. Make sure they don't have page after page of bad reviews. Good luck.

Im about to put Zurich to the test tomorrow. Dealer service just called and a Zurich underwriter is stopping in to review their list of repairs. About $3000 worth.

Extended Warranties is when you want to go through Chrysler
My choice was Lifetime Maximum Care

Just remember, your current Factory warranty started when you signed the paperwork & drove the vehicle out off the dealers lot
The Original factory warranty is for 3 years or 36,000 miles, you have to get the extended warranty before either of those 2 conditions expires first

It does not matter if you have say the 5, 7, or 10 year warranty right now
The key is the Factory 3 year/36,000 mile part of that warranty
once either part of that expires, the ONLY way to get a Factory backed Extended Warranty, is to pay for something like a 180 point check & Certification
If you have had all your service done by the dealership, it can make that Certification easier to get

i turned my 7 year warranty in & it was Pro Rated, they gave me money back on what was left of the 7 year warranty
That money was directly applied to the Lifetime Max Care warranty & i paid the difference
In my case i believe that i paid about $1,100
They gave me the choice of monthly payments or a pay off

I'm considering a new Ram, however, I can't commit because as a Canadian, we are not offered the same factory warranty as our neighbors south of the border, they get 100,000 miles, we get 100,000 kilometers. Why are Canadian Rams not covered by the same warranty?
