How to Transfer a Dodge Warrantyby Michelle Miley
The Dodge bumper-to-bumper warranty can be transferred to a new owner as can the extended warranty contracts offered by Chrysler. The Dodge power train warranty, however, cannot be transferred to a new vehicle owner. There is no charge for extending the original bumper-to-bumper warranty of a Dodge vehicle as this warranty is good for the first three years or 36,000 miles regardless of who owns the vehicle. There is both a charge and a time limit, however, for transferring Chrysler extended warranties. Chrysler recommends seeing a dealer to transfer the extended warranty coverage, but you can make the transfer yourself.
Pay off anything that is owed on the extended warranty. Warranties that are being financed cannot be transferred until they have been paid.
Complete the warranty transfer information located on your Plan Provision documents. If you do not have a copy of your Plan Provision, you can print a transfer form from the "My Plan" page of the Chrysler warranty website (see Resources).
Write a check or obtain a money order payable to Chrysler LLC for the amount of the warranty transfer fee. In most states, this fee is $50, but you should check with your specific Plan Provision or Chrysler dealer to verify the fee for your state.
Ask the original warranty plan purchaser to sign the completed transfer form. Transfers will not be completed without the signature of the person who originally purchased the warranty.
Send the check and transfer form to Chrysler within 60 days of the sale of the vehicle. Forms should be sent to:
Chrysler Service Contracts
P.O. Box 2700
Troy, MI 48007-2700
- Chrysler extended warranties can be transferred only one time.
