MaxCare Service (Lube, Oil etc.)

At dealer they called Chrysler to confirm this included DEF top off too, but I still can find anything online outlining what the plan covers.

1. Does it truly incl DEF top off
2. Does it incl synthetic oil
3. Tire rotation?

Thanks

Does Chrysler sell oil change with its warranties?

I'd like to know this as well. I signed on for a max care plan only to find out it didn't cover the proper oil type or the def top off

Re: MaxCare Service (Lube, Oil etc.)

This is an addition service plan, I have MaxCare 7 yr warranty too.

They gave me a low low interest rate if I got the plans, low enough that it is actually less $$ per month. I was reluctant since I never do warranties or service plans.

I have 3 cars and a boat. None have seen a repair shop (except tires) in 6 yrs. I don't trust anyone but me. So we'll see about this service deal.

The good thing is, if i didn't get plan and did the work myself, it would still be pricey for a diesel with 8 qts of oil an expensive filter and DEF fluid.

Re: MaxCare Service (Lube, Oil etc.)

Maximum-Care is not a maintenance plan, it is an extended service plan. It's purpose is to extend coverage on your vehicle once your Chrysler warranty is over. The same way your Jeep's original manufacturer warranty does not cover any standard maintenance (oil, DEF, filters etc...), no extended service plan I know of will cover it either. Some dealers will negotiate free oil changes to get you to buy the vehicle, but this is dealer specific.

Understand that MaxCare is warranty but under the same umbrella they (Chrysler) have a service package and Gap also. I bought all three since they reduced my rate to 0 and I will pay less a month. Anyway, if I log into Chrysler's site, I see all my packages. My ? Is does the service package include synthetic oil, DEF top off and tire rotation.

While at dealer they called and were told "yes", but that doesn't always hold water these days. Looking for any direct experience.

Not trying to jump down your throat, but this isn't true. MaxCare is not a warranty, it's an extended service plan.

This is a very important distinction, because many states have laws that regulate warranties. These laws will not be applicable to a service plan, and making this mistake might lead people to believe they have rights and recourse that they do not.

It would be nice if one could buy an extended warranty, but that's not available.

Re: MaxCare Service (Lube, Oil etc.)

Ok, we have really gotten off topic here. I'm not worried about the semantics of warranty vs service plan. I have both.

Does. Anyone with a diesel have the oil/lube plan and has hit 10k or more and gone to the dealer for their service?

Did it cover syn oil?
Did it cover DEF top-off?
Tire rotation?
