Chrysler Introduces Risk-Free Return Policy for New Ram Trucks


Chrysler is so confident in its 2010 Ram pickups — and other Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles — that it's offering a 60-day return and refund policy for buyers if they aren't happy with the purchase. Chrysler will even make the first two loan payments up to $500 per month or $1,000 total if the truck is brought back.

Of course, there's fine print that you need to be aware of.

If you return your Ram, you'll be reimbursed only for the purchase price of the vehicle after any rebates or discounts and any sales taxes paid. You won't be reimbursed for: license, title and registration fees, insurance, accessories, dealer fees, extended warranties, finance charges, negative equity or any other expenses incurred at the time of delivery of the new vehicle.

The vehicle must be returned to the original selling dealer in good, undamaged and like-new condition after 30 days of ownership and within 60 days of the delivery date.

You'll be charged 30 cents per mile driven, and the vehicle can't be driven more than 4,000 miles starting from the delivery date.

Normal wear and tear is acceptable, but the vehicle can't have damages exceeding $200. If it’s greater than $200, the vehicle no longer qualifies for the program. Any vehicle involved in an accident will not qualify for the program.

If you traded in a vehicle toward the purchase of the new one, you can’t get your trade-in back.

Only one return of a vehicle is allowed per customer. Only the top-line signer listed on the retail purchase contract is eligible to return the vehicle.

Other incentives are available toward the purchase of a new Ram pickup this month. Consumers who buy 2010 model year Ram truck vehicles can choose from zero-percent financing for up to 60 months, up to $3,000 cash back or the “60-Day Handshake” pledge program. Consumers who buy a Ram 1500 and finance through GMAC are eligible for $1,000 GMAC Bonus Cash.
