New Ram trucks come from the factory with a great package of vehicle warranties but some consumers, particularly those who desire to keep their trucks for a long time, like the security of extended warranties. For these consumers, there are hundreds of third-party companies that offer inexpensive extended warranty packages but Thunder Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram tells us that most Ram dealers offer a home-brew option that is superior in all ways.
A superior option
Rather than buying an “affordable” third-party extended warranty, a better option may be available through your local Ram dealer in the form a factory-based extended warranty. These are called MVP warranties (Mopar Vehicle Protection) and they are honored at every Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo dealership in the United States and Canada. There are many reasons to consider MVP warranties.
There when you need it
Fact: with an MVP warranty, whenever you need service or repairs, you can rely on a network of more than 4,800 dealers across North America. You will have the comfort of knowing that your service contract will be registered in a central database, allowing any dealer to access your coverage.
Includes many extras
Even while under your standard coverage, MVP warranties can offer extras. For example, you can upgrade to such services as Roadside Assistance and Trip Interruption Protection for use anytime. You can even add such conveniences as rental car use when you drop off your vehicle for normal maintenance.
A smooth process
Unlike typical aftermarket warranty experiences, with MVP, your service visit at a Ram dealer will go as smoothly as your original warranty process. This is because Ram dealers are self-authorized to handle most claims. There are no lengthy phone calls waiting for approval; no negotiating of labor rates or parts pricing; no waiting for money to arrive. All you do is sign the repair order. And, important point, a genuine Ram-certified technician will work on your truck.
Genuine RAM parts
Just imagine if your new Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab needed collision repair. Many aftermarket RAM warranty companies will not pay for genuine RAM replacement parts if a cheaper parts are available. Some even insist on the use of used parts, if available. Obviously, these are policies that are at a disadvantage to the truck owner.
Yes, standard factory warranty coverage can provide you with peace of mind but if you own your vehicle for a long period of time, it can expire. With a MVP extended warranty, you can acquire seamless coverage once your initial factory coverage end. If you travel a great deal, you can take that assurance with you as you hit the road.
