Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

I know this subject has been beaten to death and I'm not sure where to place this post but here goes.

I've done some research on extended warranties. I've found Maxcare thru Carmax and the Chrysler extended warranty. People talk about Maxcare on this site and seem to like it but I've read a bad review about Maxcare. https://www.consumeraffairs.com/auto...-warranty.html

I tried to find something about how people like the Chrysler warranty both here and on the internet in general but didn't find much.

Which one do you like?

Don H

Re: Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

Maxcare is Chrysler's factory service plan. Maybe Carmax has something with the same name but this is NOT what people are discussing here.

Look here: http://www.chryslerfactoryplans.com

This is actually one of the dealers websites that sells those for good price.

Re: Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

The maxcare that people like on here is the mopar maxcare service contract (Chrysler) has nothing to do with caremax dont confuse them. Stay away from third party warranties.

Re: Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

I have Maxcare on my Jeep and it's great. I haven't had a reason to use it outside of warranty (though I just crossed 36k miles on my Jeep so I will eventually). The nicest thing I've found is the same day car rental. Even for a standard warranty recall or oil change, I get a rental.

Unrelated to Maxcare, when my Jeep was in the shop for the malfunctioning air suspension, the repair took a week because it was over Thanksgiving last year and they needed to order parts, I was given a 2016 4Runner. We put over 1000 miles on that thing because we were traveling. And all it cost me was gas. (It also made me really appreciate my Jeep!)

Re: Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

Thanks all.
I've been on the Chrysler Warranty Direct site and nowhere did I see it called Maxcare. Now that I've been on the Zeigler site I see where the name came from.

It's interesting what's not covered by that the third party 10 year warranty the dealer offered me for about the same price. Such as CV joints but not the boots.

Re: Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

I have a 2014 Overland. I also purchased the warranty from Zeigler ($1900). Zeigler has a payment program if you don't have the cash upfront. IMHO, with all the electronics in these vehicles, it's well worth it. Any issues that I have, I take it in, they fix, I pay the $100 deductible and I'm out.

Re: Chrysler Extended warranty or Maxcare

To be clear...Carmax, nor any other car "dealer", cannot sell the true blue Mopar Vehicle Protection Plans (MVP), which Maximum Care is plan level within, since they can only be sold by Mopar/FCA direct or authorized CDJR new car dealers and Carmax is not.

That is the "factory issue" Mopar Vehicle Protection (A Product of FCA US LLC) plan being sold by CR Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram out of Adrian, Michigan. Best price I could find so I bought one from them. Got all the documentation directly from FCA. No problems.
