Warranty | Lifetime MaximumCare

I just bought my warranty from my dealer. At first the quote for Lifetime Maximum Care with 0 deductible was over $5,100.

I got a $4,235 quote from CR Motors in Michigan and my local dealer matched it.

I know some may say it's too expensive but honestly I don't want to pay a deductible and my wife plans on keeping it for about 10 years.

I ended up canceling the two contracts I got at the time of purchase. One for 36 mos maintenance and the other a 48 mos service contract. That's a $2,400. Full refund within 30 days of purchase.

I am going to get a maintenance contract from Ford for 1/4 of the cost and it covers more than just basic oil and filter changes / tire rotation.

Let's just say thank you to forums and people who reference POC for buying warranty direct.

Anyone out there with similar war stories of buying warranty?

I seem to remember reading that some people were actually sold Lifetimes with a diesel, but can't find anything in search.

Re: Warranty | Lifetime MaximumCare

Unless policy changed 8 / 120 is the best you can do. If I was the OP I would check very closely to be sure that is what your service contract says. Only Canada can get the LT service contract and it is expensive.

Love to hear the update...

Now I get it. What threw me off was seeing your post in the "2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel 3.0" section of the forum.

My local dealer matched the Ziegler quote. 8/120,000 Maximum Care for $2010 out the door.

Is this Ziegler in Schamburg, IL? If so, how do you go about getting a quote from them when you're not buying the car from them? What kind of engine did you get in your GC too?

Does not matter what dealer sells you warranty. Purchased my 8 year 120K warranty from www.chryslerwarrantydirect.com Very quick purchase, website gives you price, purchased. Received email for Vin number, done deal. Received pdf file of warranty and snail mail copy. Purchased my warranty month after I bought my diesel jeep.
My local dealer best low price $3200 at time of purchase. Saved almost $1200 using internet for same warranty

Re: Warranty | Lifetime MaximumCare

geight, I have the 3.0 liter diesel motor. You cannot buy the lifetime warranty if you have a diesel. I believe the 8/120,000 is the longest warranty for it.


Google Chrysler extended warranty or Zeigler to look at the plans available. Maximum Care has the best coverage but the highest cost.

Re: Warranty | Lifetime MaximumCare

Just purchased a max care warranty for my 2016 GC Summit from Zeigler and it was an easy purchase transaction. Even let you put money down and pay the rest over one year payments.
