With the RAM 1500, you can say, “yeah, it’s a HEMI.” This classic full-size pickup boasts a powerful engine, comfortable interior and a smoother ride than many of its competitors. While it doesn’t have the towing power of other top full size trucks, RAM makes up the difference with a different suspension that makes for a more enjoyable ride.
RAM offers multiple variations of their 1500 – different engine options, trim and technology options. With the various options, there are different factory warranties that should be taken into account. RAM offers 5 year/100,000 mile diesel powertrain limited warranty and a 5 year/60,000 mile gas powertrain limited warranty. The factory warranty will depend on what type of RAM 1500 you’re looking for.
RAM trucks are designed for work, like the Tradesman edition. Or for play, like the Sport edition. But with a large array of trims, styles and configurations, there’s a RAM 1500 that can be designed just how you like it. The original warranty does a great job of protecting your investment from additional out-of-pockets costs as a result of breakdowns and repairs, but it will eventually expire.
When the original warranty runs out, any breakdowns and repair bill become the responsibility of the owner. If you use your truck for work, it’s hard to not only have stop work while the truck in the shop, but then pay the repair bill when it’s fixed. A vehicle service contract, also referred to as a VSC, works much like your original warranty – covering major parts and components on your truck, and paying for covered repairs so you don’t have to worry about it.
A vehicle service contract from CarSure can come in different configurations to match the best coverage options for your vehicle. With the variety of options available from RAM, CarSure can find the plan that is best suited for your miles and year model. Every VSC from CarSure covers major parts just like your original warranty, such as the engine, transmission, alternator and more.
All VSC plans from CarSure offer free roadside assistance, as well as towing, providing peace of mind that you and your truck are protected from covered breakdowns. You can have a VSC during, or after, your original warranty. Don’t let a lapse in coverage end up costing you more money than it should. Call us to learn more about coverage options.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
