Dodge Bumper-to-Bumper Factory Warranty is 3 years or 36,000 miles of zero cost repairs on malfunctions caused by defects in material or workmanship during assembly at the manufacturing plant.
The factory warranty will fix all mechanical and electrical parts that break in the first 3 years except normal wear items like wiper blades, glass chips, and brake pads.
After the Dodge bumper-to-bumper warranty expires the engine warranty continues for another 2 years or 24,000 miles, totaling 5 years or 60,000 miles of engine coverage.
All warranties begin from the first time the vehicle was sold.
Dodge offers two factory warranty options for owners who want to buy extended warranty coverage: Max Care and Added Care.
What does the Dodge extended warranty cover?
Dodge Maximum Care covers the cost of repairs on the engine, transmission, HEMI, torsion bars, motor mounts, power seats, door locks, suspension, heat, air, cooling, fuel, technology, and high performance SRT parts.
It even covers the factory racing components on the Hellcat and Demon. The only items not covered are disclosed on the Dodge exclusionary list.
What is not covered
Dodge Added Care coverage includes many of the same component categories as Max Care, but includes fewer items within each category.
For comparison, Added Care coverage includes a total of 800 parts while Max Care includes 5000+ parts.
Added Care is a suitable choice for a base model Charger, but for a fully loaded Challenger or Durango — buying Max Care is the easy #1 choice.
How much is the repair copay?
Dodge has three options of deductible copay: $0, $100, and $200. The $0 option sounds great until the comparison of upfront cost is considered.
The $100 copay plan is $600 less to buy than the $0 copay, and only $150 more to buy than the $200 copay plan.
Therefore, the F&I Tools Review finds the Dodge Max Care Factory Warranty Extension with $100 deductible to be the best bang for the buck!

Where are repairs done?
Repairs are completed by factory-certified technicians at the owner’s choice of over 4000 Dodge dealerships nationwide.
The F&I Tools Review discovered that satisfaction ratings were higher from owners who returned to the selling dealer; where purchase information, service records, and therefore repair authorizations were obtained more timely.
