Re: Extended Warranty?

Trying to bring this back to life. Has anyone purchased the chrysler warranties website on a previous jeep and used it after the included manufacturers warranty? What I'm trying to find out if there are any drawbacks from buying the lifetime warranty online or just getting it from the dealer at delivery.

The drawback is for the dealer not making anything on selling you the same warranty. Tell dealer you can buy it online for $X but you would rather deal with him if he can match this price.

Re: Extended Warranty?

When you buy it from the site mentioned above, you are in fact buying from a Jeep dealer in Wisconsion, so it's no different.

I went ahead with the lifetime maxcare for 1900.

Re: Extended Warranty?

All, I purchased from the above website just a week ago, $1925 for the "Lifetime", it was almost $500 less expensive than the dealer! I thought I would check on my purchase through the dealer where I bought my GC and they said I purchased it from them! Gotta love the internet! All good here.................Thxs

Re: Extended Warranty?

My dealer offers a third-party warranty and not the Chrysler one. He quoted a price of $1995 for 7/100,000 bumper to bumper $100 deductible. For meet it appears that the lifetime Maxcare from Chrysler is a better deal.

Did the same thing just this past Tuesday. Got the Lifetime from the on-line site. Checked the Jeep owners site last night and it is already listed there.

(It was like watching a shell game at the carny show as the salesman tried to explain it all!) The simplest one was a two year extension (from 3 to 5 years), with cost of $3,665 for 160,000km limit and $4,850 for 200,000km limit.

I have a year to opt in at no extra cost. But these costs can't be justified in my budget. (Can you say hosed?) If I had the American MaxCare option, I would definitely consider it. But at these rates I will take my chances. Still, presumably some people must think its worthwhile.

Re: Extended Warranty?

I paid for the Chrysler extended warranty at the same time i paid for my 2011 Grand Cherokee in October. Paid 1100 and change for 6/85k miles. It's worth it to me. More for piece of mind. $100 deductible but it covers a lot and most importantly, all MOPAR accessories including NAV etc. Bought in upstate NY.

Re: Extended Warranty?

Took delivery on Saturday. Sat with finance manager at dealership which is always buyer beware in my experience of buying 6 new cars over the years.
He tried to sell me the Chrysler lifetime warrantee for $3500 w/$100 co pay per visit to the shop. When I asked if I could sleep on the decision, he told me there would be a $300 fee for signing up after today.
Gotta love these guys!!

That's exactly what I did. My dealer matched the online price withou very much convincing. He knew I was serious about buying the warranty and gave me no hassle.

Re: Extended Warranty?

My dealer tried to sell me EasyCare. I wanted the longest possible warranty since I keep my cars a long time, so the longest comprehensive warranty was something like 7 years/125K miles for about $4500. He refused to deal with me after I showed him the $2165 Lifetime Max Care warranty that this forum steered me to online. He said EasyCare was much better than a Chrysler warranty and he couldn't come close to the price on the Chrysler warranty either. As it was, cost of the Chrysler Lifetime Max Care warranty with $100 deductible was only about $1950 after the discount that chryslerwarrantys.com sends you in the mail
