Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

What state are you in? I'm going to try a quote for your state, maybe lifetime isn't available there...

They are still making money at $2100. The off brand was $2300 and was only 7 years and not lifetime.
A friend just bought a used 2010 WK, and the dealer charged her $3800 for a 7/100 off brand warranty.

Luckily, she was able to cancel it (with a lot of bitching from the dealer) and buy a lifetime Chrysler warranty for $1900

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Why would one want to purchase the extended warranty at time of purchase when you have up to 1 year to purchase the coverage at no additional premium?

To be included in the financing. When people are put on the spot, they'll cave. Thankfully, all of us who do our homework at JG know better So, even if you want to get the warranty at the time of purchase, you can go in prepared with price research, as previous posters suggest.

The price may go up, and the availability of the lifetime warranty might end.

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Have any Canadians used these warranties? Or are we stuck, yet again, with bloated prices for warranties -despite the loonie at parity?

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Great thread, thanks all. Exactly as stated here, the stealership first tried to peddle third party service contract, then tried to sell Chrysler Max Care 7yr/100k for $3,215 despite having this info in hand.

Less than 5 minutes after logging into the Chryslerwarrantys.com site, they emailed the $180 coupon code, which got credited against the online price of $1,665 for Max Care 7yr/100k. Unless you want to finance it, easy and cheap enough to buy off the website. No fuss.

Thanks again.

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Based on personal experience with my WJ, I would certainly get an extended warranty if you're planning to keep the vehicle beyond the original warranty period. I bought the equivalent of MaxCare coverage from a company called WarrantyDirect, and it paid for itself several times over. I would have purchased Chrysler's MaxCare plan, but I could not find a dealer willing to offer a reasonable price at the time, which kind of sucked. However, my experience with Warranty Direct was very positive. I've subsequently been ripped off by another aftermarket warranty company, which really sucks. There is a pending class action lawsuit against the company, so maybe I'll get 10-15 bucks back.

I have been trying, but we are unable to use the coverage from Chryslerwarranties.com in Canada. I wish I had an option other than the 3400 bucks the dealer quoted for an extra two years beyond the factory coverage. I am trying a dealer in Edmonton, apparently they have given good quotes to other folks on JG.

Sorry to hear this struggle for Candians. FWIW the website email language copied below suggests Chrysler Warrantys are indeed valid in Canada even if you cannot purchase them north of the border.

"Mr. XXX, thank you for your interest in ChryslerWarrantys.com!

For a limited time only... Save an additional $185 off our already highly discounted price. This offer is only valid through November 12.
To take advantage of this offer, save this promotional code: XXXX. It is required to take advantage of the additonal savings and is only valid with purchases from our site!

This is the same plan that you may have been offered by your local dealer at a much higher price. These plans are honored by every Chrysler, Dodge and and Jeep dealer in the United States, Canada and Mexico. We are so confident in our low prices that we display them on the site for the world to see!

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

I called them and they said that they cannot be purchased in Canada. There must be a way to go about this...

The Chrysler warrantys are good in Canada. I had a cracked manifold on my WJ replaced at a Jeep dealer in Nova Scotia while on vacation...
