Extended Warranty?

Will anyone be purschasing the extended warranty for their WK2? My dealer was offering the 6 year/85,000 miles bumper to bumper warranty.

Is this worth the additional $2,300? Already gets a 3yr/$36,000 miles bumper to bumper along without 100k powertrain warranty.

Any thoughts?

Re: Extended Warranty?

I assume this is warranty from Chrysler. Even if it's 0 deductible it's still not a good deal. Go to http://www.chryslerwarrantys.com/ - there they sell it $1,925 for 0 deductible and if you give them your email they will send you discount coupon for ~$200 when you request a quote.

Also I would make sure it is Chrysler warranty, not third party.

I may purchase it in the future when/if I decide I want to keep my Jeep for over 3 years.

Can you buy the extended warranty after a few months of ownership for that same price? Just need to know if I have to make my decision before I buy the vehicle or if I have a few months to think it over.

You can purchase Chrysler ext warranty at any time before the end of your 3/36,000 warranty. However, after 1 year/12,000 miles (not sure about these numbers) you pay $100 more (maybe $200). Inquire at the website above to know for sure

Re: Extended Warranty?

You have the ability to purchase at the same price before 12 months or 12,000.

Re: Extended Warranty?

I bought the lifetime (Maxcare) warranty for $2300 for both of mine. Bumper to bumper for life. Given the quadra lift etc I think it's well worth it.

Where did you purchase the lifetime warranty?

Re: Extended Warranty?

Any Canadians purchase extended coverage? I have been having trouble with the dealer quote (2yrs - $3600) and other options available. Most of the web sites are for US folks only. Any help is appreciated.

You can buy a genuine Chrysler Max Care lifetime warranty from www.chryslerwarrantys.com for less than you dealer wants for the shorter warranty. The dealerships often make more on the extended warranty than the vehicle.

It's the same warranty, valid at all dealerships, good forever without mileage limitation. It's not transferrable though, and the non-lifetime warranties are.

Re: Extended Warranty?

See Heminator post. I looked at link below talked to dealer and got for 100 less. $1565 for 7/100 for $100 deductible. MAX Care!

I used them to get my dealer to match their price for my 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Lifetime Maxcare warranty which I paid $1625 for. Unfortunately, my buddy didn't listen to me and when he bought his Ram from a different dealership, he paid $2800 for the same warranty...OUCH! I plan on doing the same thing for the JGC. I'm only quoting Max Care not the Added Care Plus which is cheaper but covers less as well. Max Care is your typical "bumper to bumper" warranty. This assumes $100 deductible. There are options for $50 and $0 deductible which substantially increases the price. These are 5, 6 and 7 year options along with the Lifetime option. I'll be going with the lifetime option on the JGC like I did with my Ram. One other thing to note here is that when you buy an Extended Chrysler Warranty (at least the Lifetime one) you receive a booklet of 6 free oil change coupons. I received two booklets when I bought my Ram (one for the military $500 rebate which the JGC has and one for buying the extended warranty). Great deal if you ask me so in my opinion it's a no brainer. The Lifetime isn't transferable to anyone except in two states if I remember correctly but I plan on keeping my JGC quite a long time just as my truck so I love that peace of mind.

2011 JGC

5/60K = $845
5/70K = $1055
5/85K = $1210
5/100K = $1400

6/60K = $940
6/70K = $1120
6/85K = $1330
6/100K = $1590

7/60K = $1005
7/70K = $1150
7/85K = $1380
7/100K = $1665

Lifetime (No Mileage or Year Expiration)
Powertrain Alone = $885
Max Care Bumper to Bumper (including power train) = $2100

I purchased the extended warranty that buys me an extra 2 years and gives me 40,000km more...it cost $1100 I believe and it made my total bumper to bumper warranty equate to 5 years/100,000km. It barely raised my payments and with the quadralift I think it is worth it. Plus it helps with your resale if you want to get rid of the GC in a few years. It's nice telling the buyer that you still have bumper to bumper warranty on the vehicle. Assuming you drive 20,000km a year over the next 5 years. It won't help if you have 99,900km and you have 100km of warranty kms left if you know what I mean. My plan is 4 years or 80,000km whichever comes first, then I will sell it! This gives the new owner 1 year of full coverage which would be nice...peace of mind my friend!
