What Issues Does the Dodge Lifetime Warranty Cover?

As of 2015, Dodge no longer offers the Lifetime Powertrain Limited Warranty, which covered the cost of all parts and labor to repair a covered powertrain component engine, transmission and drive system on Dodge brand vehicles. Instead, Dodge offers a five-year/100,000 mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, according to the manufacturer's website.

According to the Dodge Warranty website, Dodge's five-year/100,000-mile Powertrain limited warranty comes with every Dodge brand vehicle, which includes Chrysler, Jeep and Ram vehicles. There are two advantages to the five-year/100,000-mile plan over the previous lifetime plan. First, the five-year warranty includes towing to the nearest Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or Ram dealer if necessary. Secondly, the five-year plan transfers with the vehicle within the term of the warranty. The lifetime warranty was not transferable.

Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram vehicles also come with a three-year/36,000-mile basic limited warranty that provides coverage for a variety of issues, ranging from the body to the electrical system, and this warranty also includes towing. Finally, Dodge-manufactured vehicles come with five-year/100,000-mile roadside assistance service to assist with battery jumpstarts, gas delivery, flat tires and towing to nearby Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram dealerships, as the company explains on its website. The Dodge powertrain warranty is as good as or better than warranties offered by Dodge's major competitors, such as Ford, Toyota, Honda and Chevrolet.
