That is freaking awesome! Garc, all 2009 Ram 1500 original purchasers received an unlimited mileage/time (MaxCare) warranty from Chrysler as an incentive to buy. The economy was not doing too hot at the time so they wanted a hook to try and sell more trucks.
I guess we should service the timing assembly before 400,000 miles then, good to know
That lifetime powertrain warranty really is a sweet deal, my dad got his pinion seal replaced a few weeks ago on his 2009 for free. I think they may have screwed up the install because the pinion chewed up the ring gear and he had to get the diff rebuilt last week-which was also free. He only has around 116,000 miles on his though.
I travel 50 to 55 K per year mainly highway driving. Pull trailer maybe once a month for recreation. Truck has been very dependable. Blend doors on heater/AC give me problems. Had them all replaced about two years ago and need to do it again before winter. Has unlimited lifetime warranty on powertrain from Chrysler which was included with truck when I bought it new. Chrysler did not give me much grief on new engine. Had to authorize 5 hours shop time to open up engine to see what was wrong.
Might be a good idea to check timing gears at 400000 miles. The engine was running good and using very little oil. maybe 1 quart every three K miles. If the timing gear did not fail, I believe the engine would have at least another 100 k in it.
I just picked it up. Daughter wanted Pic in front of East High School. We are headed to Cheyenne. Dealership said as long as I have records on fluid change for rest of drivetrain every 120000 Miles then warranty is good. So I had the transmission, differentials and transfer case service which takes me to 600000. Still original alternator and starter.
Before i sold my HEMI powered 2009 Ram, it also had the Factory Lifetime Powertrain Warranty
I also had the Mopar Lifetime Maximum Care Extended Warranty
I sold that truck just about a year ago, the new owner & i run into each other from time to time
He is still smiling , the only thing that he has had to do was replace the water pump
He stopped by on the 4th of July just to say Hello
I only put 20,000 miles a year
My 2016 will have 40,000 miles on it at the end of August 2018
as soon as this Eco-diesel hits 100,000 miles, it will be sold
I dislike the diesel engine noise when idling, i wake up the neighbors when it starts up
The HEMI even with the Magnaflow exhaust never woke them up
