Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

No, no tire/rim coverage.

Roadside assistance is included though (good for the term of the extended warranty, though the lifetime limits roadside assistance to 7 years)

Flat tire change if you don't feel like doing it yourself.

Free rental when you are having repairs done.

They also brought me 5 gallons of gas for free when I scr3wed up once

The Chrysler extended warrantly served me very well on my 2002 WJ. You have to find a dealer service center that doesn't have marbles for brains though. My Father in law's dealer in PA refused to fix things like a seeping rear main seal, since it wasn't "leaking enough". They have since gone under.

My dealer on the other hand told me to bring in any problem, no matter how minor, because the dealership still makes money on Chrysler warranty repairs. Well duh.

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Waiting for my ordered Overland to come in, and reading up on the extended warranties is very useful. Just curious: consumer reports is completely against purchasing an extended warranty, and says 75% of buyers do not. Is there a consensus among Jeep owners?

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

do you get the metal member card? I mean is the same warranty as this?

http://www.jeep.com/en/service_contr...&opt2=option2a

Maximum Care
Option Code: LM100N
Estimated Price*$3,995.00
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price.
Taxes may apply

I paid 2800 for the above. Someone else paid 2300. I could live with 500, since I got a good deal on the car, but 700 is kind of bothering me.....

Was that dealership in Doylestown?

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

My consensus of one says get it.

A) The first year of any brand new model is risky. Lord only knows what will break after 3 years. Look at the number of TSB fixes that came out for the WJ and then the WK. Some of those TSB's were applicable to models that came out 5 years before the TSB. No extended warranty means you have to pay for those repairs. Fixing the blend door problem on the WJ's cost as much as the extended warranty does. Plenty of people are driving WJ's without properly functioning AC/Heat because of this problem.

B) There is a lot of equipment on the WK2. More to break.

C) This is a heavy AND fast vehicle, and the driveline/suspension/brakes are stressed much more than, say, an Accord.

D) I change my own oil, and because of that, I'm under my Jeep a few times a year. I always look for leaking seals, and can almost always find someting (Diff, Axle, Transfer Case, etc). If I had to pay for these repairs myself, I wouldn't do most of them. I'd just keep topping off fluid. The extended warranty gives you the luxury of keeping the Jeep in top notch condition throughout its life. This will extend it's useful life, and improve resale. All the warranties up to 7/100 are transferrable too, which has got to make the Jeep much more attractive to potential buyers.

I'm getting the lifetime warranty. I just wonder what they're going to do when say, a nav unit is no longer available 10 years down the road

Extended warranties probobly aren't nearly as good of a deal for other cars (on my wife's, it would have been a waste), but for the Jeep, it's a good deal.

Yes. It's identical to the dealer warranty. As a side note, you can buy the extended warranty from any dealer, during the 3 year 36k warranty BUT after 1 year / 12k there is an additional $100 fee.

Sounds like your dealer made more on the warranty than on the car.

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Everyone with the Quadra Lift suspension really needs to look at the fine print. Even the maximum care only states the rear shocks are covered. After owning a Range Rover you have to look at the fine print in the extended warranties. They do not like to cover those shocks since they are a normal wear part. On the range rovers they were $1,500-2,000 a piece without labor.

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

What's the point of having max care bumber to bumber if it is not bumber to bumber. That is just stupid ;-) Thanks for the heads up, I will look into the fine print.

Max Care is not the same as the factory bumper to bumper warranty, but close.

Wear parts like brake pads/rotors, wiper blades, battery, and shocks are not covered. Neither is 'soft trim'.

That said, I just read over the entire policy and there is nothing in there that excludes the QuadraLift system. NOTHING. The WK2 with QuadraLift uses standard shocks. It's the springs that are replaced by an air filled "bag", which is covered along with every other QL component.
--------------------


Maximum Care is an exclusionary extended warranty, often referred to as a "Bumper-to-Bumper warranty" and as such if it's not excluded, it's covered. The only parts and labor not covered are:
  • Maintenance services and items used in such services.
  • Glass, plastic lenses.
  • Body and paint items, including soft trim.
  • Wear items such as manual clutch assembly, brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums and belts are not covered at any time.
  • Snow plows, winches and trailer hitches

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Sounds like a pretty good plan. So do they offer the tire / road hazard program like I have on my wife's Honda? Wish I would have had it on my BMW when I hit the NJ pothole!

They do, but they use local tow truck companies of course. I had a starter problem once, and a guy in a station wagon came out!

Chrysler does follow up to make sure they arrived on time, did they assist you, etc.
