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.
