I only drive about 7,000 to 7,500 miles a year so length of contract was more important to me than miles. Why fuss around having to watch mileage when for a couple hundred dollars more you can have it insured for your lifetime? I found Bob Cline at Zeigler's extremely easy to work with. Right now he will give the code that gives you the prices before Chrysler's recent warranty price increases to anyone who asks him for it. With that code I was able to purchase Chrysler MaxLife with $100 deductible for $2185. One transmission or one head unit replacement will more than pay for this warranty. If you call Bob be sure and mention you are a Jeep Garage member so he knows where his sales are coming from. Remember this service contract increases the value of your vehicle and in the event you total it or it is stolen you will receive a higher insurance settlement.

I didn't keep my notes, so going from memory when I bought mine in December, 2013:

The extension is not available with the 8 year program.
The extension must be made before the 7-year period expires.
The extension cost was something like $850 as I recall.
I don't recall if there was an exact definition of low miles, but I think 6K is about right.
The reason I didn't get the details is that I figure the plan can change, or be dropped, in the next seven years. After six years I will call them up to see about arranging an extension (if I have kept the miles low).

You can give Zeigler a call to see what they say now.

Ditto, 8YR/120K for $2000. Just scheduled my 6th appointment for service. Vehicle has less than 6K miles on it!

Lifetime with a diesel? I don't think so.

My mistake. Was on my little laptop which has small windows and didn't show the last part of title. Only, "Did you get extended warranty" was showing.

Unless something has recently changed, the lifetime warranty is not available for diesels.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Only in Canada 9lifetime with diesel) and much more than Ziegler.
I have had mine in twice but only once for a minor alignment and the other for a new fuel door which I hope will fit flush at the top...

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I got the 8/year 120/K from Ziegler for $2 grand. I figured just one blown air strut repair would cost that much, then I am ahead of the game after that. Really the only things I am worried about reliability wise is the air suspension system, the UConnect and the diesel exhaust system.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

DAMCB, don't want to post the price I paid here but definitely call Clay at Zeller Motors for a quote. Price was significantly better than what I was quoted by Ziegler (which was pretty good to begin with).

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I literally just bought mine on this last Sunday. Took the dealer up on 7/70k w/ $100 deductible, as the end cost (through whatever black magic the dealer used) ended up being a whopping dollar less per month in payments than without the extended warranty. Seemed like a no brainer at that point =P

He withheld any discounts before the warranty then applied them in the end deal and sold you the warranty. Bait and switch. You could have bought the vehicle without the warranty plus discounts if you pressed for it. If you wanted the warranty, then you got a $2k discount. Either way, congrats on your new GC Diesel.
