You’re probably familiar with warranties for big purchases like your home appliances, computer, or other electronics. But what about your car? There are many different types of car warranties that are available to you for your new Jeep® Wrangler or 2018 RAM 1500, in case something goes wrong with your vehicle that isn’t your fault.
When your vehicle was brand new, the manufacturer provided a warranty that probably lasted for the first few years of the vehicle’s life, to protect you in case of a manufacturing error. It’s actually a federal law that manufacturers cover any factory-made or installed parts in the vehicle. The basic warranty for your new Jeep or other model is often called “bumper-to-bumper” warranty and protects against any malfunctions of the parts and systems of the vehicle, including technology that doesn’t work properly, but excludes wear-and-tear issues.
Drivetrain warranties, also from the manufacturer, protect against any problems with your vehicle’s engine, transmission, and other mechanical parts of the car that make it run. There is also a rust warranty from some manufacturers, usually for a shorter amount of time, that protects you in case your vehicle corrodes or rusts.
Extended warranties are also available for purchase that will protect you after the manufacturer warranties mentioned above have expired. These warranties can protect against a variety of malfunctions and issues but can also cover things like roadside assistance or car rental.
