Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Just bought 6 yr 100k miles Factory Max Care from Zellers motors... 20% cheaper than Zieglers. I think this place may be better than zieglers..... Same warranty....over 300.00 cheaper...

This is an old argument between Zeller's and Zeigler's. The answer depends on what you are comfortable with. If you are only concerned about price Zeller's may be a bit cheaper on SOME Service Contracts and the company you want to do business with. If you are concerned about a company that has a Mopar Extended Service Contract website with all kinds of support/questions answered, has examples of the various extended contracts posted, and stores your documents digitally so you can access them at any time then you want Zeigler's. (Try accessing your receipt on the Owner Connect website. You won't find it there.) If you want to do business with a man (Bob Cline) who is well known in automotive circles for his honesty and customer service then you want Zeigler's. If you want to do business with an automotive company that is large, spread across several states, and is financially secure then you want Zeigler.

As I said, if you are only comparing cost and not services Zeller's may be cheaper on SOME service contracts. I know when I went shopping for a Mopar Lifetime Max Care Wrap Service Contract / with a $100 deductible for my 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited I couldn't beat Zeigler's price. To top it off he was $800 cheaper than my selling dealer. I was so impressed with Zeigler's (Bob Cline) and the time and customer service spent with me on the phone that I also purchased the Mopar Tire and Wheel 7 year Service Contract from them.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Wanted to add one other thing. Did you get a phone call shortly after the sale to make sure your Mopar Service Contract ended up in your Owner Connect account and that you were well satisfied with everything like I did from Zeigler's/Bob Cline?

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I went with the 8 year Ziegler warranty for $2K. I saw that it's entered in the service computer at the dealership and everything for my VIN.

Good piece of mind as just one air suspension issue could make the extended warranty worth it.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I'll be getting one too. I dont think folks in Canada can get these warranties most are talking about in his thread? Just the actual Chrysler one through the dealer up here?

Also has anyone confirmed how long the dpf/def components are covered for and if they are included in the extended warranties that cover powertrain?

I'm pretty sure they are covered in the max care warranty...

Also to the comment about who you are comfortable buying the contract from..sounds like someone trying to justify why they paid to much...

Once you buy this contract and it is registered to you, you will never have any real reason to talk to Zieglers again. all issues will be between Chrysler and your dealer. Full copy of complete contract was emailed to me immediately after payment along with written copy in the mail from Chrysler noting acceptance within 10 days. Will show up on Mopar owners connect within 3 days. Zellers is a dealer just like Ziegler, no more and no less. If you are happy with them ...GREAT !
But saving 300.00 to me is worth 2 oil changes on this vehicle and that takes me 20K more miles down the road and I have the exact same contract folded up and in my glove box right now....

As I said it depends which Service Contract you buy. Zeller's is not cheaper than Zeigler's on every Service Contract. Since I know no one personally with a diesel it is a bit hard for me to know what kind of money people are paying for diesel Service Contracts. Zeller's was relatively late to the game and very few had even heard of them until recently. You missed entirely my point on company size and stability. You also missed my point on what Zeigler's offers on their website. But quite honestly after checking every company out I felt more comfortable going with Zeigler's. If I paid a little more so be it. I don't think I did but if I did it was worth it to me for the customer service I got. To get someone to sit down with me over the phone and go over the various price points and coverage and which was best for my situation was priceless. No mention has been made of Zeller's financing options either. Bob Cline discussed with me the various options and which was best for me. After taking his advice I received $150 in SiriusXM gift cards to use to renew my subscription after my trial period is up. So lets agree you are happy with Zeller's and I am happy with Zeigler's. You shopped strictly on price and I shopped on a combination of price and customer service. Doesn't make one of us more right than the other. We each bought what we wanted and suited us best. I wish you the best with your Service Contract purchase.

The Extended Service Contracts we have been talking about are the official Mopar/Chrysler Extended Service Contracts sold only through Chrysler and their dealerships. In all honesty I can't recommend going with a third party extended warranty. I think even Stbentoak and I can agree on that.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Stbentoak: A thought just occurred to me. When you compared prices between Zeller's and Zeigler's were you comparing the price Zeller's sent you in an email to Zeigler's website price? First off, I have never seen a price list from Zeller's but secondly if you didn't call Bob Cline you don't have Zeigler's lowest price. When I first called Bob he gave me a code to use on Zeigler's website for $50 off. After more talking with him he gave me a code for $300 off. Quite possibly that would put both Zeller's and Zeigler's prices the same and a match. But again I remind you both Zeller's and Zeigler's have different prices for different Service Contracts.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I also bought a MaxCare contract for my EcoDiesel from Clay at Zeller Motors. I bought the 7/60 with the $100 deductible. Clay sent me the contract via email after I spoke with him on the phone about my needs and my options. I sent him a check along with the signed contract. A week later, I logged onto my Mopar owners page and the MaxCare contract showed up as being active. I called Bob and got his "best" price and Clay beat that price handily without asking for any special deal.

Clay was super easy to deal with. Bob seems like he's good to deal with as well but not sure what is motivating the anti-Zeller sentiments from Macfan.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

I have said all I am going to say about this thread. We each have to do what is right for each of us. You have made your decision and purchase and so have I. Your decision was right for you and mine was right for me. Let's leave it at that. Best of luck to all of you.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

Just purchased/ordered a 2015 Summit Ecodiesel. As I patiently wait...am wondering if I should purchase the extended warranty from the dealer or is it better to drive off and buy one sometime in the next year? Thoughts?
