Re: Lifetime warranty

Got my Maxcare Lifetime Warranty for my 5.7 4x4 Overland for $1,860.00 from the dealer! I think that's a pretty competitive price!

For me, another advantage of purchasing it new with the vehicle, is that I can just add it as part of the purchase, which adds literally "pennies" to my monthly payment, vs. having to come up with 2K in a year.

so i just need to decide if i want the warranty. i think i'm gonna wait about 6 months then get it. i think it's a no brainer based on the first year release of the car and all the moving parts (minus the rear view mirrors which i dont know why the hell they didnt put that on the US version. my 2003 suburban with 250,000 miles has that on it)..

Yep, I found Stacy very helpful & pleasant! The $2050 is the price for a WK2 w 4x4... which I think is pretty great! Someone else said dealership would match or beat, at 3% interest... that's not bad either!

No difference whom you purchase, it's not the seller it's the parties of the contract and all are Mopar's LLC.

What's the price after discount at Chryslerwarranty.com for WK2 4x4, policy & deductible?

Re: Lifetime warranty

....might do the 7/70 for about $1045. I don't drive that many miles and doubt I'll have it for even 5 years so thinking the 7/70 might help for resale since it is transferrable unlike the lifetime which is not transferrable.

Note, www.chryslerwarrantys.com will shoot you a $185 off promo code when you submit your email address.

Hey kaflyboy, I was reading the fine print on my max care/lifetime paperwork the other night and also noticed that for us who live in North Carolina we get to transfer the warranty one time to another buyer.

Dan, I've heard that... and submitted 2 of my emails and neither resulted in an email with a discount code. That was about 3 weeks ago; and when I revisit the site & enter email, I'm a known visitor & address... so I'm in their system.

I got a different amt on the Chrylserwarranty site for Lifetime Max w $100 deduct for WK2 4x4. Web page indicated $2204 for Policy LWM100M for a Difference of $154, so if $185 Promo Code is offered then that's a great price!

Re: Lifetime warranty

Curiously, when I went to the extended warranty web site (on March 31st), I got the same $2204 quote for my 4x4 Summit. When I didn't bite, sure enough, in came the coupon. However it was for $190 (not $185) and was only good that day! (expired 3/31)

I didn't worry about it - I figured if I had to go that route, I'd re-enquire and use a different E-mail address. Anyway, dealer was willing to do $2050 which was close enough - saved me the hassle of going back and trying for another coupon.

Re: Lifetime warranty

Seems like these are a rip-off to me. I pay today, and then have to fight later.

Quote:
Repairs required as a result of other than a manufacturing defect (such as a design defect or normal wear);
From the Lifetime contract, under excluded items. Since the engineer already stated the vehicle is designed for 150,000 miles, after that mileage this contract is over in the eye's of the law with the court. Almost any repair at any mileage could also use this line to exclude you from coverage.

Quote:
Loss of use of the vehicle, loss of time, inconvenience, commercial loss, or any incidental or consequential damages.
This just means that if they do not use the line above, they will make sure I don't keep the vehicle forever, as each repair will just require longer time periods, more frequent repairs (remember they only have to "fix" the item, not replace with new) to the point that you basically don't have a vehicle.

After reading the contract, that was not easy to get (I used a dummy e-mail), I can't see buying. The ROI is very poor.

As for the one that stated how do the actuaries approve this, easy read the contract, it basically covers NOTHING. Design defects and normal wear allow them to refuse coverage.
