Chrysler extended warranty's defiantly pay for them self, get back with me when your at 70k to 100k and your suspension compressor fails and you have to pay $1000+ just for the part not counting the labor to install, vs. paying a $100 deductible for a extended warranty.

Re: Hub Bearings NOT Covered by MaxCare!?

I appreciate all the input and offers of help. It turns out it was fully covered for the hub bearings. Service writer says he plugged in the part number and saw no coverage, but when he used the Labor Operation Code it showed covered. They did both sides, and didn't ask for a co-pay/deductible.

I should probably have had them do the nozzle, but had already ordered the $15 Dorman set, as I'd read it had a better spray pattern and was easy to do. Took me <15 min to do both.

Still troubled by the fact that they couldn't reproduce the no start problem. I told them they could keep it as long as needed to do so, but they passed. I've had 4 occurrences just since picking it up. But that's beyond the scope of this post.

3rd party warranty's are a Joke.

Maxcare has paid it self off 3x. In 78k miles.

Paid $2300 for it july 31st 2013, I just had Radiator, Condensor/Transcooler replaced, I've had front wheel bearings replaced. A/C compressor, Thermal Expansion valve, Chrysler Good Faith replaced my Dash <--$2300 easily.


So In deductibles i have about $500 paid out for several thousand dollars in repairs.

I used to think the same. I did not purchased the extended warranty on my 2012 or 2013, but did purchase it for my 2014. So far I have had the hub bearings replaced, auto high beam sensor/camera replaced and the windshield washer fluid reservoir replaced. I'm hoping not to have anymore issues, but so far I'm glad I bought it.

Re: Hub Bearings NOT Covered by MaxCare!?

Even if I don't use it, I feel good about being able to drive for at least 6 yrs or 100k and not have to anticipate or worry about most any big thing that could go wrong.... By that time I'll be on the hunt for something else.

Re: Hub Bearings NOT Covered by MaxCare!?

I thought Maximum Care excluded normal wear and tear? I guess that then becomes the issue, is this a result of normal wear and tear, or it premature failure (which clearly is covered)?

Also, people saying that their warranties have paid for themselves 3x over in 100K miles... not exactly a good thing to hear. If anything, means you either got a lemon or FCA's quality sucks. I guess my family has been pretty lucky and hasn't had any major repair bills like that on our older vehicles.

I'm break even, as the AC failed and they had to remove the entire dashboard to repair it. Anything else and I'm saving money. Mine 2014 Overland V8 now has 88,000 miles on the odometer. A key point is that dealers charge whatever they want for the lifetime warranty, so it pays to shop. I paid much less than the selling dealer wanted.
