max care unlimited / unlimited with '14 diesel?

i apologize if this has been covered already. i did a couple of searches and wound up with nothing.

curious if anyone has any solid info if the '14 diesel GCs will have the unlimited / unlimited max care package available. when we put our order in for one id like to know before we get to that part of negotiating the deal.

thanks in advance.

Re: max care unlimited / unlimited with '14 diesel?

The Chrysler plans online do not have max care for Diesels.

"Chrysler Lifetime Warranty

2007 and newer Chrysler vehicles could qualify for a Lifetime Powertrain warranty or upgrade to a full bumper-to-bumper Lifetime warranty. Viper, all SRT vehicles, Sprinter, Ram Cab/Chassis, diesel equipped vehicles and some non-personel use vehicles are excluded. "

Re: max care unlimited / unlimited with '14 diesel?

That statement might be a little outdated because you can get it on the SRT vehicles (maybe not on the Viper but definitely on the SRT GC).

Do they actually cover the SRT vehicles, or will shady dealers just sell you one?

Go to this site: http://chrysler-warranty-online.com/...ty-information
If you call and talk to Trish she will answer all your questions. If she doesn't have an answer, she will offer to call Chrysler and find out. Very helpful, and pleasant to deal with. This is not a paid advertisement, I'm just a regular joe who called and was impressed with her knowledge and helpfulness.

Re: max care unlimited / unlimited with '14 diesel?

They dont cover diesel because diesels will always clog up around 60K miles and will need one of all of the following replaced: Intake Manifold, EGR Valve, Diesel Particulate Filter, Exhaust Manifold+turbo.

Its a common issue with all modern diesels.

The cost of upgrading to the diesel 4500 plus the cost of repair when these items go out of warranty, which they will really brings this option to over 9K.

Just get the V6 and save yourself the headache 6 years down the road.

If money is not an option, get the diesel.

If you do a lot of day to day short trips, avoid the diesel as you will clog that entire exhaust system up real quick.

Who would cover this when its designed to fail at a certain point.

Re: max care unlimited / unlimited with '14 diesel?

I have driven diesel pickup trucks for 20+ years. Ford F250's. the engine always outlasts the truck itself. I have never experienced any of the problems listed above. Vanguard, do you have experience with the Fiat or Mercedes engines that lead to this?

Those Diesel pickups did not have to meet new pollution requirements.

Small passengers cars in the around 2005 had a whole new batch of regulations adding in the EGR valves and DPF which are the culprits behind all the destruction and carbon deposition.

A diesel without a DPF and EGR valve is great...but illegal now a days.

They reduce emissions a boat load (not really, since the DPF just dumps everything out at once instead of all the time, but hey all that matters is what happens during the inspection! lol) but have a serious detrimental toll on your intake and exhaust manifolds.
