Cancel Extended Service Contract

I just purchased my Overland yesterday (pick it up tomorrow) and bought the 5 yr / 60,000 mile warranty for 900. During years 4 and 5 a $100 deductible is required. Upon reflection I think I got a bad deal. It didn't really click at the time that I'm only getting an extra 2 years and 24,000 miles and that the power train is covered for that period anyway.

What do you guys think? Did I get fleeced?

What are the options for canceling? I think I can get a refund, right?

The Quadra Lift was exactly why I considered getting it in the first place.

Re: Cancel Extended Service Contract

$900 for 5yr/60k isn't a bad deal at all. That product for my S4 was $2k (i leased anyway, so didn't do it obviously).

I don't see a need to cancel it - if anything .... extend to 100k bumper to bumper.

Re: Cancel Extended Service Contract

You can take it off before you pick up the car, or you have at least 30 days. Depending on state you have a year. Its spelled out in the fine print.

You can get a quote from chryslerwarrantys.com and compare, if it is close enough you got a decent deal. You can purchase the warranty anytime in the first 12 months, maybe longer, so you do not have to rush into it unless you want to finance the warranty as part of the car deal..

Re: Cancel Extended Service Contract

You should be able to cancel it anytime and they will prorate the refund. I plan on doing this soon as I'm not keeping the Jeep long enough to use it.

Re: Cancel Extended Service Contract

Do not believe it is prudent to purchase an extended warranty when your vehicle is covered under the factory warranty.

You can usually purchase the extended warranty just before your factory warranty is up.

Re: Cancel Extended Service Contract

Well if there is some debate, I guess that means I didn't do all that badly. As mentioned, the air suspension is what has me worried. I tend to keep cars about 4 years so hopefully this works out.

Cancel it if you bought it because it's not a good deal. You can definitely do better. There are three places to buy online or get your dealer to match the online price (which is what I did). Chryslerfactoryplans.com is the cheapest. For what you paid, you could get it for $575 (Plan Code WM560N) for 5yr/60K Maxcare $100 deductible. The only reason you were told that in year 4 and 5 that you pay the $100 deductible is because you are under factory warranty for the first 3yr/36K. You have 60 days to cancel so do it and get your money back unless the dealer will match this price. Personally, I bought the lifetime maxcare (unilimited mileage and unlimited years) for $1830. I told my dealer to match the online quote which I printed from chryslerfactoryplans.com or I'd buy it online. He matched it.

1) chryslerfactoryplans.com
2) chryserwarrantys.com
3) eservicecontracts.com
