That's incorrect. MaxCare is available for diesels.

Not the "Plan duration limited to when we decide we don't want to keep paying to fix your Jeep" version of MaxCare (commonly referred to as "lifetime"), but the defined term versions of MaxCare are indeed available.

For example, I have 8 year/120k mile MaxCare on my 2014 EcoDiesel.

Thanks for clearing that up. I must have read it wrong............. Now if I understand correctly if you own a diesel GC you can't get the "lifetime" warranty.

Re: Diesel warranty coverage

I noticed that MaxCare does not cover design defects. That seems like quite a cop-out. Then again, one hopes that design defects would be discovered and remediated during the basic warranty period (as the P20EE seems to be) or handled via another approach. I'm trying to envision Chrysler trying to claim with a straight face "No, we won't repair your vehicle, because we failed to correctly design the part that failed."

That kind of admission would just beg for a slam-dunk class action lawsuit.

Re: Diesel warranty coverage

I have the 8/120 Max Care Plan on my '14 Overland and while I'm certainly concerned about the emission system exclusions, given the issues I've had already, I still feel that with everything else that can go wrong it's worth the money.

Also here in California, state law allows you to cancel the plan at anytime and receive a pro-rated refund less a small cancellation fee of $50. It's also fully transferable upon sale so check your state laws.
The dealer also offered 36 month interest free financing on my plan so in the grand scheme of things I felt like it was worthwhile and if I change my mind and sell the thing in two years I'm only out $50.

I concur.

What emissions system exclusions?

I fully expect any emissions system issues that come up will be covered by the Max Care policy, based on the rather plain policy language excerpted in my earlier post in this thread. It's worth pointing out that the Maximum Care service plan is *not* a new product and JG is *not* full of posts where owners have felt scammed due to "creative interpretations" of exclusion language.

The lack of complaints in this regard is deafening. I don't believe there is any reason to worry.

Haha, it turns out that the DPF and SCR are covered by the emissions warranty for 8y/80k miles ($0 out of pocket for repairs, hooray!)

However, they are not covered by Max Care, so my expectation was incorrect... even though I still find it odd that they distinguish between emissions system and "exhaust components". Apparently DPF and SCR are considered both, and therefore excluded from Max Care coverage (further discussed here).

This is peace of mind at least for my wife and I. This vehicle is by a wide margin the most expensive we have purchased. I never try to feed the negativity, but I personally have not owned a vehicle with this unique and apparently widespread issue. Thanks for all the feedback, I do appreciate the feedback on this site.

Rick
