Re: Lifetime warranty

Only the roadside assistance,free rental, and trip protection expire at 7/100k with the Lifetime max care.

Re: Lifetime warranty

Just curious if most of you opted for the $100 deductible? It's safe to assume that most warranty work down the road will be more than a benjamin, right? Thanks!

Re: Lifetime warranty

I started a thread on this awhile back and I opted for the $100 deductible on my 2009 Ram with the same warranty and will be doing the same thing with my JGC when I get it. I just checked the site again and the cost substantially increases for $50 (~$700 more than the $100 deductible) and $0 (~$1400 more than the $100 deductible) deductibles. With what most people end up paying for the warranty, you would have to have approximately 7-8 repairs if you go with the $50 deductible and 14-15 repairs if you go with the $0 deductible before the cost of the $0 deductible warranty would be justified but keep in mind that it doesn't include the time value of money lost (i.e. investment potential of the extra approximately $700 to $1400 you spent on the lower deductible that you could have gained interest and gains on if you had invested it). I would say 99% of repairs will exceed $100 and it's safe to say that you're probably always going to be able to shell out a benjamin for a repair if needed. Go with the $100 deductible.

Re: Lifetime warranty

I would appreciate any info on how much the Lifetime warranty should cost. I want to upgrade the warranty that Chrysler gave me (6/70 Added Care) to the Lifetime warranty and not sure what a good price would be. Thank you!

Re: Lifetime warranty

If you get the lifetime warranty at the day of purchase, is it cheaper than buying it at 12k or within the first 12 months? if the pricing is the same (assuming you want to risk that the warranty will still be avaialble from the factory) if you purchase in the 11th month?

I went for the lifetime with $0 deductible. I'm going to wear that warranty out.

It's the same price as long as you buy it BEFORE 12 months/12K miles. After that there is a price increase. Some people buy on the day of to roll it into their financing and others wait a few months. I waited 4 months before I bought mine and it cost the same on my 2009 Dodge Ram Laramie.

Just go to www.chryslerwarrantys.com and check out the pricing. I believe $100 deductible lifetime max care is $2204 before the discount coupon you get in your e-mail after getting a quote the first time. You have 60 days to cancel your original extended warranty you bought and then you can buy the lifetime on the website (Wisconsin dealer) or get your local dealer to match or beat the price. I've been told the dealer cost for the warranty is $1700 (lifetime max care).

Re: Lifetime warranty

Wow!! New to Me!
I'm a Believer! (Old Monkey's Song!)

In reading contract coverage & chatting to Service Rep, these Lifetime Warranties are almost unbelievable! Basically, what's not in the small "Not Covered Paragraph" is Covered! That's amazing... and foolish not to purchase for a long term owner.
Any one under the 100K mile owner or 7 year owner... these are probably a poor investment!

For the few that prefer being a long term Owner; the Original Owner does have the sole benefit of qualified to purchase these Lifetime service contracts. Depending on years of ownership & number of significant claims, this could easily off-set the New / Used debate on purchase and ROI.

I normally own POV's 10-14 years, and normal repairs above the 100K include Transmission, Radiator core, axle bearings, CV Joints & Boots, Transfer Case, etc.
Not to mention possible electronic, ECM, engine, valve train or other common repairs.

My Avg 12 year total for non-warranty repairs is $6-8K easily with avg mileage 160 to 200K.

With the WK2 being a 1st year release, new Hi-Tech Electronics, Air Susp, 4x4 drive train, Light weight extra mechanical parts (panoroof), etc... one can easily predict some hefty repairs after crossing the 100K mile marker with the WK2.

$2000 bucks for a contract and the cost of new vehicles and components, I don't see how it's offered other than the actuaries calculations indicate most won't own the vehicle long enough to utilize the contract and it's great advertisement to help promote confidence & sales.

For a long term owner, I'll be getting the Lifetime Maxcare $100 deduct contract within the 12 months. Paying $100 bucks for a repair 8 years from now is peanuts compared to laying out $4000 for an unplanned tranny repair, then 6 months later a $1000 coolant repair, 1 year later a $3-5000 Air Suspension repair, etc, etc.

Unless I'm missing something, even interest lost on $2K funds over the life of POV doesn't catch the ROI.

Re: Lifetime warranty

So i just called thesee guys and spoke with Stacy. They're selling the Chrysler product (Maxcare in my case). she said they are just not marking their's up (i think they are a dealer). i asked her what happens if they go out of business and she said to take it into any chrysler dealership and you can make a claim.
her cost to me was $2,050 which includes $150 addition for 4X4 and $150 for warranty over 100,000 miles.
so her total was $2,050 and the one on Chrysler is $2,160. $110 savings.
she also said it was transferrable in NC which is good for me as that's where i live...

You get your Summit yet? I ended up paying $2050 at the dealer for my Maxcare - they really didn't break it down, just matched the website including the coupon.
