New Dodge Warranty Program Covers Almost Everything, Includes Track School

Yesterday, Dodge introduced the Complete Performance Vehicle Protection Package for buyers who want to pay more up front to avoid having to deal with any of the most common headaches of vehicle ownership. This elaborate warranty program is offered through the Mopar Vehicle Protection Plan Program and it starts by adding 6 years/75,000 miles of basic coverage to the same items covered under the standard vehicle warranty, but the Dodge Complete Performance Package also covers things like brake system components, interior damage, tires and oil changes. Oh, and it includes a day of track training at Radford Racing School, so not only does the Dodge Complete Performance Package protect and repair most aspects of the vehicle, but it also makes the owner a better driver.

While it varies a bit based on model year, vehicle model and trim line, the current Dodge products generally come with a 3 year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5 year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. For example, whether you are shopping for a Dodge Hornet GT (the least powerful and least expensive model in the lineup right now) or a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat (the most powerful and most expensive model in the lineup right now), the standard warranty coverage is 3/36 bumper-to-bumper and 5/60 powertrain.

However, anyone who has owned a modern vehicle from any automaker knows that the factory warranty – especially the bumper-to-bumper aspect – does not cover many normal wear items. Items like braking components, tires, suspension components and any aesthetic issues inside or out are not covered under a normal warranty unless those items failed due to a manufacturing defect. For instance, if you rip the leather seat or dent the door of your Charger, or if the brake rotors warp over time in your Durango, those repairs are traditionally not covered by a standard warranty.

That is where the New Dodge Complete Performance Vehicle Protection Package comes into play. This package adds coverage to just about every aspect of the vehicle inside, outside and under the hood – making vehicle ownership a whole lot simpler.

“The Dodge Complete Performance Package provides coverage of more than 5,000 critical vehicle components, including:
Air conditioning,  Anti-lock brakes, Body mechanisms, Brakes, Driveline, Electrical, Engine, Full mechanical, Instrumentation, Manual interior mechanisms, Safety and security, Steering, Suspension and Transmission

Additional benefits of the Dodge Complete Performance Package include:
Brake pads, Clutch assembly, Full repair or replacement coverage for all four tires/wheels damaged due to road hazard conditions, Interior rips and tears, Oil changes for life of contract, Paintless dent repair, Rotors, Squeak and rattle repair, Tire rotations, Wheel alignments, Wheel repair (up to $7,500/year), Windshield glass replacement, Wiper blades, and Worn tire replacements (up to two), including stems, mounting/balancing and labor charges”

In short, all routine maintenance and most items that commonly wear out are covered during for 6 years or 75,000 miles, removing a great deal of financial responsibility from the owner. Plus, the Dodge Complete Performance Package includes a one-day instructional session at Radford Racing School, so I addition to keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape inside and out, this fancy warranty package also makes you a better driver.

So what is the catch? Well, unlike the standard warranty, the Dodge Complete Performance Vehicle Protection Package is not included with the purchase price of the vehicle. The website with information on this program tells interested owners to call a number for pricing of this package for their vehicle and Dodge won’t even offer a general price range – so we are guessing that it is fairly expensive. Seeing as how not paying to repair all of the things on that list could save an owner thousands of dollars over the course of 6 years, I wouldn’t be surprised if the package costs a couple grand. Also, those who want to add this protection package have to either buy it when they buy the vehicle at the dealership or within 4 months of taking their new Dodge home.

The link to the information has “SRT” in it, so we reached out to the Dodge brand to confirm that this program is indeed open to all new Dodge vehicles purchased going forward – whether you buy a 2023 Challenger SXT, a 2024 Hornet R/T or a 2024 Durango SRT Hellcat. Also, for anyone who previously purchased a 2023 model year Challenger, Charger, Hornet or Durango within the past few months, and who didn’t drive it more than 5,000 miles can add this package as well.
