You had been planning the perfect road trip for months, and right now, you’re just 100 miles from your cross-country destination. However, as you attempt to leave the fuel pump, you notice that your transmission won’t shift out of a lower gear – even though you’re stepping on the pedal to accelerate.
Car trouble can spell disaster on any commute – let alone while you’re hundreds or thousands of miles away from home. Fortunately, if you’ve invested in extended warranty coverage from Chrysler Warranty Direct, transmission issues and other mechanical malfunctions will only be a hiccup in your travel plans. Here’s how to use Trip Interruption Protection, which is included in most Mopar Vehicle Protection Plans from Chrysler Warranty Direct, when on vacation.
In some instances, Road Assistance may be all that’s needed to get your Chrysler, Dodge, RAM or Jeep vehicle back up and running. However, in emergency situations where a mechanical problem renders your car, SUV or truck inoperative, towing assistance will be dispatched. For further assistance, call the Roadside Assistance Hotline at 800-521-2779.
The Powertrain Care, Added Care Plus and Maximum Care extended warranty plans from Chrysler Direct Warranty all include $1,000 Trip Interruption Protection. This coverage helps cover your lodging, meals and transportation expenses – up to $1,000 – if you experience a mechanical breakdown during a vacation. Keep in mind: you must be 100 miles or more away from home for Trip Interruption Protection to kick in.
While your vehicle is worked on by specially trained technicians at the nearest Chrysler dealership, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that it’s getting genuine Mopar replacement parts. Now, all that’s left for you to do is either wait for your vehicle to rejoin your trip, get transportation home or leave for your destination in a rental car.
