Extended warranty question

<!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> Hi,

Anyone here are getting extended warranty? How much are they and what would be my options? My car at 23K and cheesy 36K Jeep warranty should be finished in 2013.

Thanks!

Re: Extended warranty question

I've been looking into it myself. From what I've read Chryslerwarrantys.com seems to be a popular choice. It is Chrysler backed so there isn't the threat of bankruptcy like third party companies. There are several levels of coverages and deductibles. Do a search on the forum for warranty and you'll get a ton of info (and opinions).

I think if I need to keep it longer than 3 years/36K I need additional warranty. Actually that is the main reason I might not stay with Jeep. Not many companies left offering such cra..y warranties

Re: Extended warranty question

I paid about $1,700 for a 7 year, 100,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty in July. My 2011 Overland had 30K miles on it at the time.

Re: Extended warranty question

I bought the Lifetime MaxCare the other night for my '12 Summit which is going to hit 12K miles (already...) tomorrow morning on the way to the airport. $2185 from an online dealer. Historically, I haven't been one to purchase extended service contracts, but given I'm keeping cars much longer now, putting on more miles than I used to with a shift in the way my job works and considering the large dependence on expensive technology in the vehicle, I decided this was going to be a good idea this time around.

Re: Extended warranty question

READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY AN EXTENDED WARRANTY PLEASE!!! I am a Service Director for a couple C/J/D/R Dealerships. I just want to clear up some "Grey area" for you all.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BUMPER TO BUMPER EXTENDED WARRANTY!! DO NOT BE FOOLED!!!

The best possible warranty you can buy is the Chrysler service contracts Maxcare warranty. (Now CSC is calling themselves Mopar Vehicle Protection MVP)

The #1 reason why? Is if you bring your Jeep in for repairs to the dealership, the dealership is self authorized to repair your vehicle with MOPAR parts and MOPAR TECHS.
An aftermarket (i.e. Pyrmid, AON, Resource warranty) has to be called to even check covereage, your dealer will already know what is and isnt covered via dealer connect. The aftermarket companies only pay up to a certain dollar per hour and you are responsible for the difference if it is less then the dealer charges. They will only pay up to a certain dollar amount for parts, or better yet, SUPPLY YOU WITH USED OR BONES YARD PARTS!! If you want new mopar parts, your paying the difference. You will never have that issue with a Chrysler contract. 90% of the time once the repairs are called into check coverage, the AM warranty companies will send out an "inspector" to verify the repairs needed... That only takes UP TO 72 HOURS!! Oh, you need something to drive? GO RENT A CAR THEY WILL NOT PAY FOR UNLESS YOUR REPAIRS ARE COVERED. Yes, in some cases Chrysler will need to send an inspector, in the case of my stores, only for repairs over $6000.00... They pay for a rental while you wait for the adjuster, repairs covered or not.. and if they are covered and took 2 days for the adjuster, they add an additional 2 days to the already 5 days your covered for. I could go on and on and on... 95% of aftermarket warranties are a total waste of money and cover 50% of what a Maxcare from service contracts would cover, and the 50% they do cover... HARDLY EVER NEEDS REPAIRS!

Take it for what its worth, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, you may spend $400 or $500 more on a Chrysler contract but I promise it is worth every penny!

Oh, and I think if you call Chrysler service contracts 800 # for sales, they will finance you for 12 months, @ 0.0% with a 20% down payment. I know they had that program last year, not certain if it carried over to this year or not.

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED! LOL

Please feel free to PM me if you have and questions!

Re: Extended warranty question

I'm close to purchasing the lifetime..... I wish I would have purchased it in 2011 when it was only $1750 ... But I guess $2200 isn't all that bad if I keep it. I'm thinking one issue with quadra-lift and it will probably pay for itself.

The reason I haven't pulled the trigger yet is because my 2011 still has about a year of factory coverage and the lifetime price increase won't happen till November. I have until then to decide if I'm keeping this thing. I have been contemplating putting that $2200 toward a 2014 model.

I love my 2011 overland and got a fantastic deal on it so I wouldn't lose much on trade. If jeep does what they did in 2011 and offers a kick butt incentive of a couple thousand on the 2014 I'll be in with both feet.

Re: Extended warranty question

I never had an extended warranty so I'm not familiar with the various terms available. I don't put a lot of miles on a car, so I'm wondering if they sell anything with extended time, but not a lot of extended miles?

I used to put 100,000+ miles on my vehicles in 3 years. Now that would take close to 20 years.

Re: Extended warranty question

Is exhaust system and emissions control work covered under the current Maxcare extended warranty? I have heard conflicting reports regarding whether these parts are included in coverage. They don't seem to me to fall under the "excluded" items listed in Maxcare coverage...

Thanks.
