Chrysler sells full coverage MAX CARE 8/120 extended warranty for $2127. Not sure that this is a good deal or not. Any comments are welcome.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Im trying to figure that out too. I will most likely get an extended warranty. This will insure that I will not have any problems with the car. Murphy's Law will kick in.....

My 2014 Lesson learned: If you can get a Max-Care Warranty....GET IT !!
There are to many issues to rely on the basic. After the initial warranty you could be stuck for thousands as I have read on this blog. Diesels are the most expensive thus far. Bad fuel can cost 8K to repair as documented on this blog. With the extended warranty dealers don't have to fight the buyer. Its easier on your nerves too.
If you run the numbers and wait 2-3 weeks you will get a coupon code to save up to $200.00

I got my 8/120 warranty from zeigler. It was cheaper than your quoted $2127


I know of several others that did as well at the same time as myself.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Guys help me understand your thinking here on this warranty stuff. I have a 2010 Dodge Challenger RT. I have the standard warranty on it. Once I got within a couple months of the end of the 3 year bumper to bumper warranty. Chrysler contacted me with info that would allow me to purchase the extended warranty. The same exact ones I could of purchased when I bought the car for a better price. In fact because my Challenger has s low miles, Chrysler will let me have the extended warranty up to 4 years. So guys what is your hurry to pluck down big bucks for an extended warranty up front when you can get it after your bumper to bumper expires? That way you keep your money working for you for 3 years. Am I missing something. Mike

I think other's have done better. Skim this thread and there are a couple of good contacts that will probably save you some good money.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I purchased my 2014 Limited 4X4 3.0L diesel in November, 2013. Due to my driving history (lots of miles.... just turned over 50k) I decided to self insure rather than purchase an extended warranty. So I put a couple hundred bucks away each month since the purchase just in case the first model year jinx hit me.

The first sign of a problem showed itself when I hit 36.5k miles (of course) and it was the improper DEF message. The dealer said he cleaned the injectors from some crystallized DEF. The dealer did that under warranty since it was so close.

I was also having the transmission shudder so the dealer applied the updated software and it's been perfect for the last 15k miles. I believe that and four other updates cost me $280.

I started getting the Check Engine light and the P20EE code about a month ago. Carried it back to the dealer along with the latest TSB about replacing the SCR CAT and my truck is in the shop today having that done at no charge under the Federal Air Standard warranty according to the dealer.

So at least at this point I have spent $280 out of pocket on my diesel and its all been "out of warranty" work.

As I've stated several times I'm very satisfied with my purchase and expect to put well over 200k miles on this vehicle.

One of the main underwriting elements used to calculate the premium for any warranty product is whether the vehicle is still within the parameters of the factory warranty. Really the lowest-cost underwriting scenario is to get your extended warranty when you're within the first 12 months/ 12 K miles. And, as others have pointed out the 3.0L Ecodiesel drivetrain is complex and fraught with potential catastrophe. Your Challenger is a lot less prone to these potential issues.

Each to his own. But, really, how much value can you put on piece of mind?

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Rule 62: I agree, piece of mind is important an individual thing. But why not wait until your close to when the warranty runs out. Then pick up the warranty. I guess you have to weigh the cost difference if any for getting it within the first year (like you mentioned) or waiting to near the bumper to bumper warranty runs out. Just my opinion (no facts to back it up). I would rather save or invest that money for the first 3 years then buy the warranty for the piece of mind. My assumption is I would come out somewhat ahead. This quote by you is a scary though "3.0L Ecodiesel drivetrain is complex and fraught with potential catastrophe." That statement doesn't make me feel good about my order. YIKES! How has your Jeep behaved? I'm putting together a list for the dealer to take care of (if they ever build it) based on what I have learned on this terrific site.
1. Is DEF fluid topped off
2. Perform the TSP and tie off the DEF harness
3. Install Dom's plate. Although I need to figure out how to make sure it doesn't rattle.
Hopefully the 2015 has all the updated software.

OK sorry I talked too much. Mike

What's your expected return on 2k over three years, given you have a strict time horizon? Investing in equities for such a short window seems risky, so what kind of safe equivalent return are we talking about? I mean, I guess you could go put it all on red in roulette and let it ride, but if we're doing a strict financial comparison the liquidity risk is a definite consideration.

What's the added cost of tacking on the service plan after the first year? I never checked. Also, they keep inflating the baseline price of the service plan year on year.

What's the cost of a rental vehicle if your Jeep goes into the dealer for a multi-day repair under the basic warranty, given that this benefit is covered under the service plan? How about towing to the dealer, because that's covered too?

Considering all the scenarios is necessary if a proper evaluation is going to be done.

PS. I can't put a price on any of the pieces of my mind. I need them all.

Mike-

It's a complex machine, man. Lot's of bleeding edge technology and if you buy one congratulations...you're a relative early-adopter (at least to the complexities of the current emissions system).

My experience has been absolutely perfect. I purchased a MY '14 Jeep in late August (build date of 6/27) and have just turned 4000 miles. No issues at all to report. My wife is the primary driver and it's mostly local urban short-distance commuting. But I make it a point to get it out on the freeway at least once a week to get it nice and hot.

In answer to your questions:


1. Is DEF fluid topped off : Mine was NOT and I brought a printout of the Pre-Delivery SB with me to make sure it was done.
2. Perform the TSP and tie off the DEF harness: I haven't done this as it hasn't been in for service yet.
3. Install Dom's plate. Although I need to figure out how to make sure it doesn't rattle.: I did this two weeks ago before the big rains came. I also had all 3 Skid Plate kits (5 plates in total) installed from the ORAT-II package as my Summit came with a naked underbelly.

I think if you're properly informed and take the precautions other's have advised on this forum, you'll be a very happy Jeep owner.

Good Luck!

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I know this is off topic but as for the dealer topping off the DEF, you may not want to do so unless you do a lot of driving. mine was full from the dealer and I had no problems but take a look at some of the threads about DEF problems. you'll most likely be ok in the winter, but DEF degrades with higher temps. I just order 2.5 gal as needed and fill when I get low.
